Bobbie's Girl (2002)
Great Little Film - Two Leads Not Believable as Couple
I really liked this movie. I came upon it totally by accident one day while channel surfing. I love intimate little films that are about people and their personal journeys, not about how many cars can be blown up.
The little actor playing Allan (Thomas Sangster) has the biggest and most expressive eyes I've seen in a while.
I've read comments that the openly lesbian and Jewish elements wouldn't really fly in a small town like the one in the film, but that didn't bother me.
What kind of bothered me was the fact that Bailey and Bobbie didn't seem like a real couple. I'm a lesbian and I see straight women playing lesbians all the time. You can tell they're straight and a little uncomfortable with same-sex affection. There were moments in this film where I got that distinct impression.
But other than that, I think the movie is great. I've seen it a few times now, and I always cry at the end.
