Isabel Coixet’s biographical drama Elisa & Marcela (2019) is both heart-wrenching and sweet, telling the real-life story of Elisa Sánchez Loriga and Marcela Gracia Ibeas, two women who married in Spain in 1901- more than 100 years before same sex marriage was legalized. The film portrays the hardships that Elisa and Marcela faced, while also showing the deep love between the two that caused them to go to such lengths to stay together.
