Rising star Elena Goode is as adept at portraying a strong, passoniate woman as she is playing a vulnerable and complicated character. This fresh-on-the-scene Puerto Rican beauty is currently starring in the festival hit, Elliot Loves, written and directed by Gary Terracino, and receiving a lot of buzz from critics and fans. Elliot Loves follows the adventures of a boy at two stages: as a nine year old who is best friend to his single, barely-keeping-it-together mom, and as a 21 year-old looking for love in New York City. Deemed a ‘Latin spitfire’ by a reviewer for her role, Goode plays a single mother raising a Dominican-American son who is full of heart and hungry for love. The film won “audience choice” at Miami Gay and Lesbian film festival and will showing at the Kansas City Film Festival, Q Fest in Philadelphia, Outfest in Los Angeles, New York Latino Festival and Giffoni Film Festival in Italy.
