Cupcakes directed by Eytan Fox (Israel) 2013 is a delightful romantic comedy revolving around a modern European musical tradition.
Six friends gather to watch the annual EuroSong Contest. After the TV show ends, the guests perform a song to cheer up the party host.
The entire group consists of four heterosexual women, a lesbian, and a gay man. Each of the amateur singers, representing Israel the following year, has relationship issues.
The film is timed perfectly after the 2014 Eurovision win of the Austrian entry, Conchita Wurst, made headlines worldwide.
Cupcakes screens at the Castro Theatre Saturday 28 June 2014 at 8:30 PM during Frameline38. For more information and tickets contact Frameline.
