Lesbian Thriller (2015)
Elkie Kransky was just six years old when a man grabbed her older brother, Bryan, from a playground near their home in Perth, Western Australia. He’d yelled for her to run and not to look back and she’d done as he’d ordered; running straight home to tell her mother. Bryan was never seen again and Elkie’s distraught mother was unable to cope with his loss. She sent Elkie to boarding school and told her “…it was for her own safety.” A six-year-old Elkie assumed this meant the man might come back for her, too. Now a grown woman. Elkie has become a nationally respected investigative reporter, writing for newspapers across Australia and internationally. She investigates and exposes pedophiles and paves the way for the justice system to deal with them. But the ‘law is an ass’ and in Elkie’s opinion so is Detective Sergeant Steven Jolly of the Major Crimes Squad. Legal trickery and police bungles provide a means for some of these men to slip through the legal system and receive minimal if any punishment. A new investigation leads Elkie to mother of two, Leila White with whom she falls instantly and hopelessly in love. Unfortunately, the door is slammed shut on what might have become a beautiful friendship when Leila’s son dies from an overdose of veterinary tranquilizers. Elkie later discovers the overdose the young boy took had been traded for sex with a pedophile veterinarian. The vet insists the drugs had been stolen and it’s difficult to prove otherwise. Incensed and frustrated by the injustice of it all, Elkie begins to plot how she might dispense justice on behalf of the victims. Unable to save her own brother, perhaps she can save someone else’s. She’s not afraid of bad men anymore – bad men are afraid of her. And so they should be.

Coral is a middle-aged woman caring for her mother, Amelia, in the home they share with Coral’s long-term partner, Nick. Coral’s life is turned upside down when her mother is admitted to hospital with pneumonia and is not expected to survive. Adding to Coral’s woes – after thirteen years together – Nick chooses this tumultuous time to leave Coral for another woman.

Together, they begin rebuilding their lives with the help of Dr. Olivia Thomas – Amelia’s lung specialist – and Clancy – the nurse assigned to help Amelia with in-home medical treatment and personal care.
Coral accepts that she is unlikely to find another lover while she is providing her mother with such high level care in her home. Especially since she is ‘over the hill’ and unable to get out and about to meet new people anyway. Then Nick breaks-up with her girlfriend and wants to try to rekindle their relationship. At the same time, Coral begins to sense that some other women in her life might be sending her signals of their interest as well. However, Amelia’s fragile state of health makes it difficult for Coral to even consider moving on with her love-life.
Fortunately, Coral has a supportive network of family and friends to help her feel comfortable about her future with her mother. But will that support be enough for her to find the confidence to think about loving another?
A funny, heart-breaking and sometimes even frustrating tale of finding love in the face of adversity. ‘Caring for Amelia’ will warm your heart, make you laugh, make you cry and leave you smiling.
