The LOFT is proud to present two separate viewing opportunities for the 2012 film Laurence Anyways on  Friday, August 18th .

The film spans a decade of a transgender woman's dive into coming out and presenting as her authentic self, while renegotiating everything she and her lover thought they knew about their undeniable attraction to each other.This weighty romance teeming with lush, fanciful visuals set to a score studded with tracks by Duran Duran, the Cure, and Depeche Mode is not to be missed.
