Centered on a woman who searches for love in a gay bar
29 January 2006 | by because_im_dilutedSee all my reviews

It was a wonderful movie. Although it wasn't on a billion dollar budget, the characters were wonderful and the plot was fairly believable. One woman, Loretta, frequents a gay bar in search for a love she's never had. She meets Rachel. Neither Loretta nor Rachel are single but they are determined to make it work. There is a sort of love-circle between the women that frequent the bar and Loretta struggles to keep a hold on the one person who is there for her. It had a feel similar to the movie "The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love" (another beautifully crafted movie). I'd recommend them both.
