The tender lesbian love story finds universal in a concrete way [TIFF]

At the heart of “This Place” are Kawenniióhstha (Kawennáhere Devery Jacobs) and Malai (Priya Guns), two young women struggling with different intricacies about their father. Kawenniióhstha is looking for her father, an Iranian man, who abandoned her mother Mohawk for reasons she wants to find out. Meanwhile, Malai discovers that her father, an immigrant from Sri Lanka, is ill and doesn’t seem to have much time left on this earth. Despite the difficulties they both face, they gradually find solace in each other thanks to a chance meeting at the laundromat and a missing notebook.

The scenes that the two take together are full of the surprises of first love. The way Kawenniióhstha and Malai interact with each other feels authentic in a way that only young lesbians and sapphic women can truly perceive – there’s something about it that makes you feel like you’re in love, but it’s hindered by the possibility that the woman next to you won’t feel the same way. This is a conspicuous feeling that brings out the rest of the film effectively, as it helps make up for the lack of scenes involving real intimacy.
