Storyline

The story of two ordinary women in their mid years, who live deep in the bible belt, populated by square teachers, libidinous students and home to suburban monotony. Carly is a married woman with two kids, who works as the school secretary; Dinah is the single, lonely math teacher who coaches the girls' basketball team. Long time disinterest between the women perchance evolves in to a series of one-on-one basketball games, during which the two women grow closer physically and emotionally, until one heated game ends spontaneously in a kiss. The outcry from family, friends and the community as the relationship between these two women blooms, creates a timely story in which is woven the notion of family, of gay relationships and which raises the banner of gay marriage.

We saw it to see Esteban Powell, but . . .
8 December 1998 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

. . . it was darned good! The logic of the long wait before the scheduled wedding puzzles me, but overall it was a very nice film. (And yes, we did enjoy seeing Esteban Louis Powell in it!)
