Emotional lesbian break up film
3 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film centers around Liza & Sally, a female couple who have isolated themselves from the scene and who's only comfort amidst there painful break up is partying and drugs. Beautifully & creatively shot against East London's backdrop the film has a refreshing depiction of Lesbians - I'm sure due to the writer/director Kanchi Wichmann being openly gay herself - and depicts the realities of a break up in honest & in some parts shocking portrayal. If you are looking for an upbeat film go else where, although humorous in parts it's largely depressing (as expected from the topic!) however it's a brave choice of topic from this British film maker and well worth the watch.
