Boston Film Festival has a lot of stars coming through town this week, but the real reason to get excited is the indie films themselves. Metro shares a few highlights



‘After Fall, Winter’


Friday, 8:45 p.m.

If Romeo and Juliet got into BDSM as they got older, then they might have been a little bit like the characters in this drama, which will have its world premiere this weekend. Eric Schaeffer wrote, directed and stars in this film, which explores the darker sides of sexuality, loneliness and love.

Schaeffer may have bitten off more than he should be able to chew, as his acting is at times a weak link, but every other aspect is quite effective and much of it will stay with you long after the credits roll, from the odd sweetness of his Parisian romance to the touching side story of dying girl in a hospital — and, oh yeah, all that BDSM stuff too.

‘Fully Loaded’

Saturday, 7:15 p.m.

Will Ferrell’s right-hand man Adam McKay is a producer of this film, which will have its East Coast premiere this weekend. The action plays out like an improvised comedy show and provides interesting character studies of two single moms who are trying to live it up as best they can on their night off from parental duties. They juggle their own reckless interests and parental responsibilities with easy rapport.
