But my dream...
21 December 1999 | by chrisdrewSee all my reviews

This film is beautiful and shows a variety of lesbian lives. Butch, femme, multi-cultural, tea lovers, radicals and 9 to 5ers. The film does not persecute the lesbian who sleeps with a male friend as another comment says. It begs the viewer to question the judgment and paranoia that is baggage for many oppressed people. This film was made over many years on weekends off by a dedicated crew (or so I've heard) and the result is fun, funny, erotic, thought-provoking and a ray of hope for lesbian film that tries to reach beyond lesbian versions of 90210. Thanks Ros
