Gaudi Afternoon

Spain 2000

93 mins

Director: Susan Seidelman
Stars: Judy Davis, Juliette Lewis, Lili Taylor.

Susan Seidelman, of Desperately Seeking Susan fame, directs this warm and witty gender-bending detective story about alternative families, set in Barcelona against the backdrop of the Gaudi’s fantastic architecture. Cassandra (Judy Davis), an American translator living in Barcelona, is hired by femme fatale Frankie to track down her missing “husband” Ben. Her assignment is a tangled web of mistaken (sexual) identities, double-crossings and a kidnap plot ... Gaudi Afternoon stars two-time Oscar-nominated actress Judy Davis (Husbands and Wives, Passage to India) and Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden (Space Cowboys, Pollock).

Directed by Susan Seidelman (Desperately Seeking Susan, Sex and the City), the film was produced by the Oscar-winning producer Andrés Vicente Gómez (Belle Epoque). The cast also includes Oscar-nominated actress Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers, Cape Fear) and indie movie queen Lili Taylor (Ransom, High Fidelity).

The screenplay was based on the popular lesbian detective novel by Barbara Wilson, which won both the Lambda Book Award and the British Crimewriter’s Association Prize for the Best Novel Set in Europe.

The scriptwriter, James Mayhre, will introduce the film in Johannesburg. Previous to writing the screenplay for Gaudi Afternoon, Mayhre was a development executive and personal manager at the Warner Bros-based production company, Somers-Teitelbaum-David, where he developed such projects as The Rookie starring Clint Eastwood and Charlie Sheen and In the Nick of Time for Disney. As a personal manager he’s worked with such clients as Treat Williams, Hector Elizondo, Jennifer Beals, Martha Plimpton, Amy Madigan and Sally Kirkland.

Mayhre lives in the Johannesburg suburb of Parktown North with his boyfriend, Dr Dennis Sifris, and is currently seeking permanent residency under South Africa’s same-sex partners’ rights legislation.
