About the Film:
Cloudburst is a 2011 Canadian-American comedy-drama following Stella and Dotty who are an older lesbian couple from Maine. Together, they embark on a Thelma and Louise-style road trip to Nova Scotia to get married after Dotty is moved into a nursing home by her granddaughter. Along the way, they pick up Prentice, a hitchhiker traveling home to Nova Scotia to visit his dying mother.
