Storyline

Hannah and Rachel grew up as little girls in the same small Midwest town, where traditional gender expectations eventually challenge their deep love for one another. Hannah becomes an adventurous, unapologetic lesbian and Rachel a strong but quiet homemaker. Weaving back and forth between past and present, the film reveals how the women maintained their love affair despite a marriage, a world war, infidelities, and family denial. Written by Anonymous

beautiful
17 January 2011 | by (Moscow) – See all my reviews

so simple and yet so moving. i have not seen a lesbian movie like this in years. in a way it resonates with the story of the two old ladies in "if these walls could talk 2", and i could not help but think about gay couples living together and loving each other no matter what and then so ruthlessly separated right at the time when they need each other so much. i hope there comes a time when we no longer have to face it.

..it is true to life, and that is why for me it felt easy and natural to relate with the two women. they are no perfect, but they are so beautiful loving and caring.

one other thing i loved about this movie - it has something in it that allows to make it a theatre play. it is somehow crying out to be staged, and maybe one day it will.

and Sharon, thank you for amazing acting. superb, as always.
