Seattle: The grunge girl band "No Exits" is just about to get a record deal. At this time Jimmy is appearing again, the former boy-friend of the band guitarist Shelly. She had left him because his friend had raped her. But he doesn't know that - up to now. Shelly has fallen in love with the band singer Suzy in the meantime. But she still loves Jimmy, too. So she moves to him again, what Suzy doesn't like that all. Especially because she is becoming a feminist. The conflict is about to threaten the band... Written by Marco Radke <ds@serve.com>

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!
16 December 1998 | by (Manchester, England.) – See all my reviews

All I really have to say is, more please. This movie had a cool sound track, good character detail, managed to tackle complex issues while leaving enough room for the viewer to have an opinion, and unlike more dated genre work such as "Go Fish", this movie is well into the young dykedom of today's world. The philosophical moments in this movie are tinged with the bitter-sweet taste of reality, rather than myth. And I do not understand why the film was cut for broadcast on terrestrial TV in Britain. It seems we still have a very long way to go concerning the establishments. However films like this are helping to pave the way.
