My Friend From Faro Synopsis

Nana Neul's blistering directorial debut has drawn comparisons with 'Boys Don't Cry' and 'Unveiled'. An assured, mature piece of work that draws heartfelt performances from its leads, Neul's future work will be worth watching out for.


Eternal daydreamer Mel can't wait to quit her sucky catering job and fly to her dream destination: Portugal. Things change when the beautiful Jenny literally crashes into her life when Mel nearly runs her over in her classic BMW. It is love at first sight, however there is just one problem: Jenny mistakenly assumes Mel to be a boy. Despite this, the pair become boyfriend and girlfriend. With Mel attempting to disguise her true gender at every turn, her journey from tomboy to out lesbian is fraught with life-defining dilemmas and sweet surprises.

A beautiful tale about mistaken identity, coming of age and young love. This one sort of came out of nowhere, quietly, and I cannot help telling people to watch it. The acting is superb and there's an energy that keeps it all moving along nicely. And, just when you think it's all going to end unhappily, it picks up a gear and brings a tear to your eye. Lovely!
