Very Decent ....but mis-advertised as a lesbian- flick
3 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

  • I enjoyed this movie! Both actresses were in top form, and both the


plot and the script were incredibly realistic (which can be a refreshing break from all of the "out there" Hollywood story lines).

  • Briefly, it's about a woman who discovers that she doesn't want to be


an uneducated house wife for the rest of her life, so she decides to pursue her dream of going to school. It's quite inspirational.

  • I really enjoyed the main actress in six-feet-under. She's very


genuine and "real-seeming." Courney-love, despite all the bad press she's received through the years, was superb. She's an excellent actress (and I'm pretty picky).

  • Bottomline: If you like indie films, definitely check it out!
