CAN YOU HAVE A HEALTHY OBSESSION WITH A BLOOD BANK TECHNICIAN?
This week the Queer Lounge, Sundance’s LGBT-centered mixing-and-mingling hub, announced a list of more than 40 queerish films that will be screening at Sundance, Slamdance and elsewhere in Park City, Utah, beginning Jan. 17. We’ve already told you about Pariah and The Guitar (starring Saffron Burrows), but now there are a couple more films we’ll be keeping our eyes on.
The documentary feature An American Soldier follows Sergeant First Class Clay Usie, one of the most succesful army recruiters in the United States, over several months; one of the soldiers he recruits is a lesbian.
And Sunshine Cleaning tells the story of a professional crime-scene cleaner "who develops an unhealthy obsession with a
blood bank technician" according to the Queer Lounge press release.
Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada, My Summer of Love) stars as the crime-scene cleaner, Mary Lynn Rajskub (24, Punch-Drunk Love) plays the object of her obsession, and Amy Adams plays Blunt’s sister.

From that brief summary, Sunshine Cleaning sounds like a CSI episode gone horribly wrong. Except without any Sara Sidle. Oops, that’s like all of CSI these days.

"But it’s not anybody’s business who I sleep with or who I f—! I don’t give a s–t what the magazine is. People are going to come up with whatever they want to come up with on their own; I don’t have to make announcements. Come on!"
