Cynara: Poetry in Motion

1996 NR

Directed by Nicole Conn (Claire of the Moon), this elegant romance set in the 1880s follows Byron and Cynara, two women whose chance meeting in an English seaside village turns into a passionate love affair. At a time when lesbian relationships are hardly the norm, Cynara (Johanna Nemeth) and Byron (Melissa Hellman) find an undeniable chemistry between them as their unassuming friendship evolves into an erotic courtship.
