The lesbian drama Cloudburst debuts on DVD and digital download later this month.

The film will be available for download on July 23, and arrives on DVD July 30.

In the film, Dot (played by Brenda Fricker) and Stella (Olympia Dukakis) are an older lesbian couple together 31 years and living in Maine. When Dot's granddaughter (Kristin Booth) puts her grandmother in a nursing home, Stella breaks her out and the pair head to the border to marry in Canada. Along the way, they pick up a young hitchhiker (Ryan Doucette), and the familial plot thickens.

The film premiered at the Atlantic Film Festival in Canada in the fall of 2011.

In a recent interview, Dukakis criticized the lack of distribution for Cloudburst.

Dukakis said she felt “good” about recent marriage equality gains, then said, “But I'll tell you what I don't feel good about: This film cannot get distribution in this country. Yeah, sit with that for a little bit. Sit with that! Don't get too rosy in your view of things. You can't get this distributed in this country.”

“I wish I did understand. Sidney Kimmel Entertainment has the distribution rights. They sold it to Lifetime, and, of curse, you know what Lifetime did with it. They played it initially at 11 at night and at 3 in the morning, and they bleeped everything,” she added.
