Fresh, new perspective of young lesbians today
4 September 2004 | by junecatpowerSee all my reviews

This movie is one that I can watch over and over again. It is something fresh and new. The screenwriter/director does a great job of bringing many different

aspects of young lesbian existence. For example, by bringing together people of different races, social economic status, and different family make-ups; it opens one's eyes to different possibilities. It is quite opposite of what is usually thought of when one thinks of a gay or lesbian film. This movie does not stay in a box; it busts the box instead. Every time I see this movie, I am able to pick up on

something that I hadn't seen before. Although this is a movie where you don't really have to think much; I tend to analyze regardles. I found that it is not the what actually happens on the surface that really keeps me coming back for

more. It is the intricate underlying messages that the screenwriter/director is trying to get across that engages me.
