British Film Institute - CAROL élu meilleur film LGBT de tous les temps. -

Meilleurs films | Over 100 film experts including critics, writers and programmers have voted the Top 30 LGBT Films of All Time. The poll’s results represent 84 years of cinema and 12 countries. 

The winner is Todd Haynes’ award-winning CAROL.

Tricia Tuttle, Deputy Director of Festivals at the British Film Institute said:

“The BFI Flare team are delighted with the results. Here are 30 films we love and so many we have screened in the Festival. Carol’s win excites us because it’s great to see a film about two women in love enjoy such prominence, particularly given cinema’s relative lack of lesbian content, and it’s such an extraordinarily fine film which has had near universal praise from critics and curators. To see Carol enshrined in this way so soon after release is a testament to how beloved it is and how esteemed Todd Haynes is as a filmmaker."

"Proudly androgynous, Linder models in both men’s and women’s runway shows. So it is no surprise that her personal hero is Tilda Swinton. “I admire her style so much—I think she is amazing. She can do it all; she can play a man, a woman, a horse!” she says. And so, we suspect, can Linder.

Asked if her new career (actress) is scary, she says of course it is: “But if it isn’t scary, I don’t want to do it." - VOGUE, APRIL 4, 2018. Hooked on Louis Vuitton’s Capucines With Erika Linder


Erika Linder / Actress


"Model Erika Linder announces herself as a promising screen presence"

"Erika Linder. One of the most impressive silver screen outings for a model to date"


Sara Serraiocco | Baldwin / Counterpart

Showreel | Counterpart

"The actress Sara Serraiocco is the person stealing the show on Counterpart so far. Serraiocco had a not-so unique path to acting: she started out as a dancer. Now one of the hottest talents in Europe" (Decider)
