Three stories of lesbian love charting the changes in American society from the Sixties to the present day. In '1961', Edith Tree (Vanessa Redgrave) attempts to get used to life on her own when her female partner of over fifty years passes away. '1972' sees a feminist co-ed (Michelle Williams) earn the disapproval of her friends when she unexpectedly falls for a butch outsider (Chloe Sevigny). While in '2000' a lesbian couple (Sharon Stone and Ellen DeGeneres) face complications and confusions when they decide to try for a child.

This is the first in a genre of lesbian films which actually focuses on real issues and depicts lesbians in a favourable light - not as steroetypes but as loving, caring, sensitive people from all walks of life.
It is well written, funny and sad and appealing to everyone, whether straight or gay. It shows that lesbians can be old or young, that we want the same things out of life as everyone else. We want children and express the same concerns as heterosexual people.
I nearly cried when I watched this as I felt relieved that finally something positive has been made about the gay community.
It is a feel-good movie and will appeal to all ages.
What a fab film!!

The hype was all about Sharon Stone and Ellen DeGeneres "doing it", but theirs was actually the weakest of the three episodes set in the same house. Vanessa Redgrave, in the 1961 part, is genuinely unmissable as a woman who has to deal with the greedy relatives of her recently departed lifelong lover. "Dignity" was the word that leapt to my mind. The second episode, set ten years later, features the adorable Chloe Sevigny in her first butch role (I'm still scandalised about her not winning an Oscar for Boys Don't Cry) - showing that women's lib and lesbian rights did not necessarily include rights for women who dress like men (and very erotically so...). The third part, then, takes us back to the present: Sharon and Ellen desparately trying to have a baby. It's all about sperm donors, timing and - let's face it - laughs. Although genuinely funny, this lighthearted sitcom episode is an ill match for the other two. Still, the whole package is a delight to watch and crammed with fine performances - I would just recommend watching the episodes in reverse order.

"If These Walls Could Talk 2" follows three separate story lines through 3 different decades of lesbian life, love, and woes. The hardships encountered in story one, "1961", by the lead character (a heart-wrenchingly superb performance by Vanessa Redgrave) exposes the closed-minded senseless discrimination prevalent in that era. "1961" hits like a ton of bricks and reminds us that, in this world, love and loss are felt by each and every one of us. This first story is a well acted tear jerker that anyone who has ever been in love can relate to.
Eleven years later, when story two "1972" is set, it's the height of the feminist movement where college-age, hip, sexy lesbians are in the prime of their young lives. "Butch" Amy (Chloe Sevigny) and "femme" Linda (Michelle Williams) fall head over heels into wonderful, butterfly-y first love. This story is a sweet and sexy portrayal of the excitement of young romance. The lovers' affair, unfortunately, is disrupted by a sobering dose of discrimination when closed-mindedness once again rears its big, ugly head. Great performances, too, in this one... simply a wonderful story!
The final story, "2000", takes place (as the name would suggest) at the start of the new millenium. Commited, cute-as-hell couple Fran and Kal (Sharon Stone and Ellen DeGeneres) want to have a baby. "2000" light-heartedly follows the women through their trials and errors in everyday moments and baby making attempts. True to life, honest and intimate, this sexy in-depth glance at the lives of these two characters provides insights, even, into our own lives. Viewers will never again have an excuse to put limits and labels on love and happiness! A fantastic story full of hope and love...
"If These Walls Could Talk 2" is truly a must-see...with tears, laughs, and love, this movie has something for all of us!

A moving portrayal of 3 very different relationships. Excellently directed, it concentrates more on love, relationships and emotions rather than homosexuality as a political movement. Vanessa Redgrave gives a fantastic performance in the heart rendering tale of a lover who is unable to share her loss. Contrasted with a brilliant comic but emotional portrayal of women attempting to have a child. Ellen gives a hilarious performance as usual and Sharon Stone is successful in her role of comical Fran. The sex scene is beautiful and the whole film creates a heart warming, confident look at lesbianism through the ages. Well worth a watch and then another!

The 3 stories included in this film are accurate, aptly treated and are a credible representation of lesbianism in both the social and emotional contexts.
The acting is terrific. Vanessa Redgrave gives a peerless rendition of grief and loss, and the intimacy and wit with which Ellen D and Sharon Stone play is warm and engaging.
This piece keeps the right side of sentimentality throughout and is an excellent history lesson as well as a hopeful snapshot of today. See it!

Three stories.
The last one is a funny commentary on 'issues' facing lesbians at the end of this century; featuring of course Ellen and Sharon Stone: hmmm, delightful combination.

The middle one is extremely sexy, and being a bit butch, really had something for me to identify with.
The first is the best but, as it reduced me to tears, honestly for hours, I can't watch again.
Buy it
Watch it, watch it, watch it......
