Spotlight Cinema: Thirst Street

  • 227 State St.

MMoCA's Spotlight Cinema premiers critically acclaimed and award-winning narrative feature films.

Alone and depressed after the suicide of her lover, American flight attendant Gina travels to Paris and hooks up with nightclub bartender Jerome on her layover. But as Gina falls deeper into lust and opts to stay in France, this harmless rendezvous quickly turns into unrequited amour fou. When Jerome’s ex-partner, Clemence, re-enters the picture, Gina is sent on a downward spiral of miscommunication, masochism, and madness. Inspired by European erotic dramas from the '70s, and narrated by Anjelica Huston, Thirst Street burrows deep into the delirious extremes we go to for love.
