NY Sneak Preview

Eva + Candela (also known by the title, What’s Your Name?) takes us on an amazing journey through the inception, rise, decline, and fall of a lesbian relationship. It’s beautiful, sexy, heart-wrenching and most of all, utterly relatable.

When Candela (Alejandra Lara), a movie director, first auditions actress Eva Ramirez (Silvia Varón) for the lead in her film, the sparks are instantaneous. Is love at first sight a thing? Because it sure seems like it to them. In almost no time at all, Candela and Eva are a couple. Loving. Supportive. Sexy. All the things anybody wants from a partnership. Their burgeoning love is a sensual, wonderful sight to behold.

But life happens to all of us, and Eva and Candela are no exception. Candela’s career as a director downshifts to one as a professor, just as Eva’s takes off. As an in-demand actress, Eva travels all the time, is gone for weeks or months on end, leaving Candela alone to take care of their house, their dog, and eventually their son.

Jumping forward and backward in time, Eva + Candela takes us on a journey that’s full of so many things: love, promise, reality, heartbreak. And it asks the question many of us have asked ourselves, whether we care to admit it or not: when you promise each other that you’ll never be one of those boring, conventional couples, what do you do when you realize that’s exactly what you are?
