A tour de force for Jamie Babbit. This film is socially relevant and fun at the same time. It's about a young woman's journey and discovery of herself, not her sexually. That just is and it's OK with everyone. How refreshing a lesbian film where it is OK to be a lesbian. Maybe they should have named it But I'm a Lesbian. The film is really sexy, with an amazing cool sound track of now singers: le tigre and peaches are way cool and really add a lot to this film. It's pretty much a all woman cast with lots of the "popular" girls in it. Carly and Leslie make me laugh. These chicks really know how to rock. The girls who play Ana and Sadie (the leads) are so pretty and incredible talented. The best part of the film is the whole thing. I think it's Babbitt best work yet. It should be on the best list of lesbian films ever made.
