I thought this film was heart warming, and the casts' performances left me wanting more. The commentaries by the writer and director afterward were also fun to hear. The leading ladies played off of each other really well, and the loving moments did not feel forced or odd. The emotions were there and real and brought a humanity that sometimes is left out of the gay and lesbian genre sometimes. The youngest of the cast was a real treat to see. I hadn't heard of her before and I thought that she played the part of a young woman trying to figure out the mystery of her life well. The film made me forget about the lesbian aspect, and made me focus on the dynamics of the characters, and their love for each other instead. I definitely want more! Make it a full length feature already!
