In this very personal documentary film, Amy Neil offers a touching story of a strong desire to feel more connected to her family. It's a theme that undoubtedly affects many gay and lesbian people. She always felt different as a child and didn't have any immediate family role models to help her understand what it means to be a lesbian...or did she? The film wonderfully unfolds with vintage pictures of her favorite grandmother that were mysteriously hidden until Neil asked questions as adult. They tell a story of love, companionship, and what it must have been like to be a strong woman during a different era. In good documentary fashion, Neil allows the viewer to decide what this all means, but it is clear that she found out more about a favorite relative and a deeper connection to her family. This movie really moved me. I recommend everyone should see it!
