Product description

Product Description

Lesbian romantic comedy. Flunked law student Maggie (Karyn Dwyer) now works for the highly strung Frances in her Vancouver bookshop, and thinks she has found the love of her life when she meets artist Kim (Christina Cox). All goes well between Maggie and Kim until Maggie's recently divorced mother, Lila (Wendy Crewson) - who is unaware of Maggie's sexuality - announces her intention to come and visit. While Maggie frets over choosing to 'out' herself to her mother, Lila is befriended by her transsexual friend Judy (Peter Outerbridge), and gradually comes to appreciate the truth about her daughter's social group.

From the Back Cover

Lesbians have been eagerly awaiting the release of Better Than Chocolate ever since its successful run in UK cinemas in 1999. A light, funny and sensual film, it tells the story of Maggie (Karen Dwyer) \and her new love Kim (Christina Cox).

Maggie has flunked law school and is working for uptight Frances, who runs a gay bookshop in Vancouver. Kim is a van-dwelling artist. It's love at first sight, but, just as their relationship is blossoming, Maggie learns that her mother and brother are coming to visit. They don't know about Maggie's sexuality, that she now has a girlfriend or that she is flatsitting for a woman who runs Safer Sex With Latex workshops.

Will Maggie come clean and come out?
Will her mother cope with her recent divorce and her daughter's lifestyle?
Will Frances get her books back from customs?
Will post-op transsexual Judy ever break through Frances' reserve and win her heart?
And who will find the stash of sex toys in the flat...?
