An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
Rachel is a nice girl who is going to marry with Hector ('Heck'), her longtime boyfriend. While she is working in the wedding preparations she meets Luce, wedding's florist, unexpectedly falling in love to her and discovering what is having love feeling to another woman. Unable to stop her Rachel meets Luce a few times hiding it to her family, specially her mother Tessa because she contracted Luce. At the same time that Heck tries to win the affection of his parents-in-law, above all the eccentric father-in-law Ned, Rachel tries following with the daily life and marriage with her husband, but the love and passion she feels for Luce causes a secret affair between both women, and a doubt in Rachel about the life she wants for herself.

I am not here to talk about this film. I am FUMING because of the MPAA rating for this film. Rated R. ARE YOU KIDDING????????? This film was a harmless romantic comedy just like the millions out there: Pretty Woman, Notting Hill, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days- all of which are rated PG 13. I am so angry at the blatant discrimination in the rating of this film. Because it portrays lesbians FAIRLY (meaning, no one freaks out about their sexual orientation), it is rated R. And this might be no big deal. I mean, after all, we can all watch this film as adults. However, the blatant discimination makes me angry. And furthermore, making this film, like thousands of other films about LGBT people unavailable to a younger audience further isolates and "other-izes" LGBT people. Its not right.
