Even if this photo is not tecnically promoting the film, it’s one of the better marketing tools for a movie I’ve seen in a long time.
Here’s the plot summary:
In this sexy, lesbian romp, loosely inspired by the art house classic, Run, Lola, Run, a talented but distracted photographer (Lola), on the verge of success in both love and work, could lose it all if she doesn’t make it to a crucial meeting on time.

Very cool! But if they had let readers vote on Hayden and Blake as a couple, too, the poll would have been 38% more interesting.
