LGBTQ December Movies

December is all about the holidays, but for folks who want LGBTQ stories that are not holiday focused, there are a handful of new (and old) films to stream in the final month of the year.

One In a Thousand

The romantic drama “One in a Thousand,” (on VOD November 30) from Argentina, immerses viewers in the world of Iris (Sofia Cabrera), a teenager who becomes enamored with and pursues Renata (Ana Carolina García). The young women eventually meet on a bus and soon start hanging out together. Iris, however, has heard a rumor from a friend that Renata is living with HIV. How these two young women navigate their relationship — Iris is tentative — forms most of writer/director Clarisa Navas’ meandering film. Although not much happens, “One in a Thousand” is quite compelling. There are interesting subplots involving Iris’ gay cousins, Darío (a scene-stealing Mauricio Vila) and Ale (Luis Molina), who also grapple with their sexuality. Watching these youths care for each other is gratifying. This low-key film, which is set in the projects, provides a strong sense of place as it depicts its LGBTQ characters with humanity and compassion.
