Kiss of the Spider Woman

Two cell mates in a South American prison are wildly different men. Luis is a trans individual who is found guilty of immoral behaviour; Valentin is a political prisoner. However, during the time they spend together, the two men come to understand and respect one another more than they ever knew they could. Babenco’s adaptation of Manuel Puig’s novel was acclaimed on release, not least for its synthesis of fact and fantasy.
