I thought I should start closing my blinds at night, since the character of Frances IS me! I was extremely impressed by the two leads, Karen Dwyer and Christina Cox.
Their love making scenes were utterly realistic, a tribute to the acting ability of these two lovely ladies.(unless, of course, they are truly lesbians) But for me, the supporting cast was equally amazing. This is a group of great Canadian actors, who have proven once again that Canada can hold her own when it comes to
the arts. Outstanding performances by Peter Outerbridge, Anne-Marie MacDonald and
Wendy Crewson. I loved every one of you. I think anyone who feels the need to dis this movie is taking life way too
seriously!(Nothing like a dyke with an attitude, eh?)
