Roxie film series honors Israel's Pride Month

|
()
Ezri (Ran Danker) and Aaron (Zohar Shtrauss) realize their forbidden attraction in Haim Tabakman's Eyes Wide Open

They also embark on a secret program of ritual cleansings for a prison-released French murderess (Fanny Ardant, atypically hammy) dying of both cancer and heart disease. It's too bad the series' sole lesbian feature is so melodramatically over the top. Then again, it's probably pretty tasteful by the standards of a director previously associated with schlock like 2000's Raw Nerve (Mario Van Peebles meets Nicollette Sheridan!) and 2001's Tales from the Crypt Presents: Voodoo.
