This beautifully directed domestic comedy/drama flips the narrative in a unique and Queer way by highlighting the story of Margarita, a Mexican immigrant new to the big city life of Toronto. “A queer Mary Poppins for the new generation.” – SheWired.com, Margarita won the coveted Best Feature award at InsideOut 2012, Toronto’s LGBTQ+ Film Festival, a partner of Reel Q.

“A queer Mary Poppins for the new generation.” — SheWired.com
This wonderful lesbian drama tells the tale of an undocumented Mexican nanny, Margarita (Nicola Correia Damude) whose girlfriend Jane (Christine Horne) is reluctant to commit and whose yuppie employers — a nice Toronto family, including a bi-curious Mom — are about to let her go.
Margarita is a charming film and is the latest feature from lesbian co-directors Laurie Colbert and Dominique Cardona who brought us the 2007 drama Finn’s Girl.
