Wonderful, inspiring documentary
12 October 1999 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Ruth Ellis discovered her Lesbian self in 1919, at the age of twenty. By the time she retired from owning her own print shop, she was 65 and the civil rights movement was just getting started. Now, at 100, she's an inspirational figure in the Detroit women's movement, and this film explains why: she's feisty, dedicated, and completely honest about herself. In the space of an hour, I learned about Lesbian and black life in the '40s and '50s, what it's like to have a one night stand at the age of 95, and the desires of the modern feminist and Lesbian community for role models and leaders. A recommended film.
