curl up in front of this one with your g/f
on 24 January 2003
Decent lesbian films are hard to find, but this one's a real gem. Funny, romantic and that little bit sexy (mmm body painting those curves). Ideal to play at night, and curl up on the settee with your girlfriend. Even some of our straight friends love it. The main plot's a comedy around mum coming to stay and the inevitable coming out after catching her daughter in bed with her g/f. There's some nice little subplots including literary type, Francis besieged by customs impounding all her imports for her bookstore and the efforts of Julie, a translesbian woman not only to woo the shy conservative Francis but also to fight for recognition as a true woman. Overall, it's upbeat and fun to watch again and again. Gritty it isn't, but then if u wanted that, you'd go for All Over Me, Bound or the Monkey's Mask. Finding something else in the way of a film like this so positive about lesbian love and romance is pretty hard, but you might like the second story of If these walls could talk 2 with a wicked portrayal of butch-femme lurve.
