Out of Season
Out of Season is a dramatic powerhouse – stunningly acted, beautifully directed, and resonating with depth and honesty. Carol Monda stars as Micki, a lesbian character the likes of which is rarely encountered on the screen: she’s a real person, filled with bitterness and rage, and scared to death of loving someone.
The small cast is excellent; in particular, Monda’s understated performance highlights the subtlety of Kim McNabb’s quiet, finely-hued screenplay.
Carol Monda as Sarah is the pivot in this well-balanced cast. Monda plays the role with vitality, candor, and a nice blend of innocence and panic. Her sense of urgency is palpable, honest and still hilarious.
Morticians in Love
As Limer, Monda plays the part like Joan Crawford might’ve played Riff Raff – with pathos and intimidation at once.
