In Eva Longoria's latest film Without Men, she plays a leader in charge of a Latin American village where all its men have been forcibly recruited by guerilla revolutionaries.

This story evolves into a sensual, steamy lesbian relationship between Longoria's character Rosalba and co-star Kate del Castillo.

The film is adapted from the novel Tales of the Town of Widows by James Cañón.

The two women are straight in real life so it was a little difficult according to director Gabriela Tagliavini, but she adds Eva is more sexy here than in Desperate Housewives. She was a total trooper and she just went for it, it all looked very real.

Without Men will be released in U.S. cinemas on July 29.
