Wes Hurley talks POTATO DREAMS OF AMERICA

 

Seattle queer filmmaker, Wes Hurley’s new dark comedy POTATO DREAMS OF AMERICA is his touching real-life story of how his Russian mother, a doctor, actually became a mail order bride so that the two of them could have a brand new life in the US



It’s a beautifully poignant movie that is a story of hope that doesn’t shy away from the fact that it came at a price. Potato (aka Hurley) and his mother could only find work in a fast-food establishment but they are both resilient and their good humor gives this story the ending it deserves.

Look out for a scene-stealing performance by an almost unrecognized as Lea Delaria who plays Potato’s grandmother  Tamara  

The movie has been selected as the Opening Gala of OUTshine LGBTQ Film Fest so QUEERGURU talked with Hurley to discover if his  life really was as funny as it seemed
