A high-school girl's first sexual experience is with another girl, and, along with her first broken heart, she must deal with her mother's reaction to her revelation that she is a lesbian and with ostracism at school.
An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
Anna is a young lesbian high school graduate who still lives with her parents, and works as a receptionist in a plastic surgeon's office. She embarks on a wild ride when she hooks up with a cadre of ultra-radical feminist lesbians hell-bent on raising hell. But things get even more complicated when Anna falls in love with Sadie, the radical group's leader who's already involved with an older woman named Courtney.Written by

You do realize that Calvin's a girl?
And? I want to see if she will come to Sacramento with us.
This isn't a dating service, you know.
Sorry, Shuli. Last time anyone checked, you liked men.
Who said I didn't? Jesus, you dykes are such closed-minded bitches.

I saw the Itty Bitty Titty Committee at a screening and was quite surprised. Even though I - as a man, may be not the main target group, I really liked the movie. Director Jamie Babbit makes some very interesting stylistic choices and the camera work is really innovative; that was one reason why I really had fun watching the movie. Besides this the story is very well developed, it as a nice exposition, and before you even notice you are already a part of Anna's (the protagonist) life and in the middle of the IBTC. The actresses do a really great job, Melonie Diaz is already established in the independent movie scene and the Itty Bitty Titty Committee shows why - she has found a very sensitive way of interpreting Anna's part and it is amazing watching her playing this girl. Also to mention are several well-known faces who are also part of the IBTC as Daniela Sea (The L Word) or Carly Pope (Popular). Moreover I was really impressed of the editing that goes along with great music, that completely hits the atmosphere of the movie. So to bring this to an end: As a (independent) film lover I was happy to see the Itty Bitty Titty Committee and can only recommend it to everyone who is interested in good movies. And of course, seeing beautiful women making out is always a reason to see a movie ;-)
