The movie stars Vega as a waitress in Madrid who seeks refuge on a secluded Mediterranean island after the loss of her longtime boyfriend. On the island, she pieces together the dark corners of her relationship.

The movie is known for its steamy scenes. Despite receiving four honors at the 2002 Seattle International Film Festival, the city’s two daily newspapers banned advertising for Sex and Lucia. The Spanish-language film still grossed $1.4 million in a limited release in theaters.

Palm’s Blu-ray includes these special features:

  • “Behind the Scenes of Sex and Lucia
  • cast interviews
  • photo gallery
  • soundtrack excerpt
  • and cast biographies.

Vega also stars in the movie Fade to Black, released on DVD by Image Entertainment on Oct. 5 at $27.97.

In the thriller, Vega plays a young actress who attracts the eye of actor Orson Welles (Robin Hood‘s Dunny Huston), who’s trying to recover from his broken marriage to Rita Hayworth and re-kindle his failing career. When Vega’s stepfather is killed by an unknown assassin, Welles follows the mystery into the criminal underworld.

The R-rated Fade to Black also stars Oscar-winner Christopher Walken (Wedding Crashers, $5 a Day).

The movie was available as a digital download the same day as its DVD release.
