Synopsis

ontent_labOuterSynopsisText"> 

Directed by Hector Babenco and adapted for screen by Academy Award® nominated screenwriter Leonard Schrader from Manuel Puig's novel, Kiss of the Spiderwoman takes a penetrating look at the role of sex and politics under an oppressive right-wing regime.  Flamboyant homosexual Molina (William Hurt, Robin Hood) and aggressive straight revolutionary Valentin (Raul Julia, The Burning Season) share a prison cell in an unnamed Latin American dictatorship. Molina, to Valentin's disgust, escapes the cell walls by recounting in intricate detail a melodrama he saw some years before that unfolds in a series of nostalgic flashbacks.  Devoted to his politics, Valentin takes exception to the film, but is gradually lulled by its telling. Luis, however holds a secret of passion and betrayal …
