Director: Aisling Walsh
“ An amazingly beautiful and intriguing love story between Sue and Maud, two young women, both living hard lives in and outside of London.

It's a two-part movie with a somewhat complicated storyline. The story revolves around the very sensual lesbian couple and an very exciting scam that the story is built around, which you get to follow and evolve an understanding for during the movie.

This movie is a long, fantastic and absolutely breathtaking love story which everybody should watch.

The World Unseen (2007)

A drama centered on two women who engage in a dangerous relationship during South Africa's apartheid era. (93 mins.)
Director: Shamim Sarif
“ My personal favorite.

This movie is amazing in so many ways. First of all, the love story is so beautiful, sexy and sensual. Both actresses are ridiculously beautiful and give a fantastic performance as two very similar women who live very different lives.

Miriam is a wife and a mother of three who has always lived a very constricted life with very little freedom. When she meets Amina, her thoughts and opinions about life changes. Amina pushes her to create a life of her own.

The movie portrayes the society at the time (1950's in Cape Town, South Africa) in a very clear and honest way, which makes the movie so much more than just a love story.

It's a 10/10.

“ A fun movie that you just can't get tired of.

I absolutely adore this movie. It's the perfect balance between an easygoing comedy and a beautiful love story.

It's pretty much a basic, lesbian love story, but the result of great writing and acting makes it stand out as one of the best lesbian movies out there.

Chloe (2009)

Director: Atom Egoyan
“ This movie is one of the sexier lesbian movies.

Amanda Seyfried plays Chloe, a young, beautful escort, who gets hired by a suspicious wife (Julianne Moore) to seduce her husband.

It's an interesting development of the story where a sexual attraction evolves between the women.

One of the better lesbian movies, I'd say.

Better than expected, I must say.
