"Lianna" might be a bit outdated, but John Sayles captured it very well. He captured a woman from Alberta, Canada going through a change in her life when she was in a unhappy marriage with two children. Lianna saw something in herself when she saw Ruth, the professor, in class. Though the relationship between the two women were not always wonderful and loving at times, they have had their moments. Lianna could always turn to her friend, a non lesbian, for comfort. The movie began in the playground just like it ended in the playground. I will say this. Lianna loved her children. Though they didn't understand why their mother was a lesbian. I believe deep down in their hearts they knew she loved them. It is still a great movie from the early 1980's.
