a real slice of 70s lesbian nostalgia, 9 September 2010
Author: michellelocke007 from Canada

a fun piece of historic film that is considered by many to be groundbreaking in one of its few positive portrayals of lesbians in the early seventies. story lines concerns two housewives who live next door to one another and spend their time going to an out-door café, the local amusement park and getting together with other housewives for a round of cards and drinks and conversation. the two female leads, while having lunch one afternoon see a lesbian couple holding hands and being affectionate in public. one of the wives confesses later to the other that she wants to have what the lesbian couple have...the two wives end up in bed together and things start getting rocky from there. while one views their brief affair as a fling and harmless the other starts to develop romantic feelings for the other. before you know it jealousy erupts and adultery is committed. while the film reel is out-dated and grainy at best, it is still fun to watch. the 70s clothing, furniture and green shag carpet are amusing bits.
