Adapted from the novel “Minchia di Re” by Giacomo Pilati, “Purple Sea” chronicles the forbidden love of two young women in 19th-century Sicily. Angela isn’t like other girls her age: Fearing nothing and nobody, she refuses to hide her feelings for Sara. To maintain the relationship, Angela disguises herself as a man, and the chains that had imprisoned her existence suddenly disappear. Although newly powerful, Angela in her heart never denies her identity as a woman. Challenging the rules of society in order to be together, the women respond to a desire that’s as intense and compelling as only young love can be.
