The Sea Purple AKA Viola di mare (2009) Donatella Maiorca, Valeria Solarino, Isabella Ragonese, Ennio Fantastichini, Giselda Volodi

The Sea Purple (2009)
Nothing – not her father, not the church – can stop unruly Angela from being with her childhood best friend turned great love, Sara. Based on a true story, Viola di mare, presents a uniquely engaging portrait of family, community and gender roles in a 19th century Italian village.

Viola di mare is named after a salt-water fish that is born female but can change to male during the course of its life. Thus the title of this 19th-century Sicilian Sapphic love story — based on true events — summarizes the plot perfectly: A woman refuses to renounce her lesbian lover and the church is cajoled into declaring her a man despite the anatomical evidence to the contrary.

Angela is said woman. Her father, manages the island’s quarries for the local baron; he is a cruel and violent person who abuses his family and treats his workers live slaves. Angela’s best friend Sara left the island during their childhood, but she returns as a fully developed woman. Angela seduces Sara, commencing a clandestine lesbian affair. Both women are promised to men, but Angela stands firm in refusing to wed anyone but Sara.
