A story of love and lies for four twenty-somethings looking to find themselves in New York City. A pair of best friends and a seemingly perfect couple meet at a local Irish pub tucked in the winding streets of the West Village. Through their chance meeting, the four bond and over time all of their relationships with one another morph into love, betrayal and heartbreak for all.Written by
For starters, as a lesbian themed movie, this one is excellent (not exactly hard to do considering the competition, but worth pointing out). As a movie in general, I think this is a nice character study. This movie has some great depth, and I've thought/discovered something new each time I've seen it. All of the leads do a great job. The actor who plays Greg is probably the weakest, but overall he is okay in his role.
The basic plot line is about a group of 4 people; Molly, Bridget, Trip, and Greg. Molly and Greg are a couple who have just moved to NYC together. They stumble across a bar The Four-Faced Liar one evening and meet Trip and Bridget. They become friends with them, and from there the film is basically a romantic drama. The main romantic tension is between Bridget and Molly. Bridget is an out lesbian who is basically a player. She and Molly develop a friendship, and from there something more grows. I think the film did a good job of building up this relationship. Molly did not seem immediately attracted to Bridget, but as their friendship grew her feelings did. Trip is also a great character. He is roommates and best friends with Bridget. He has a subplot with his girlfriend Chloe and develops a friendship with Greg.
Anyway, I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a lesbian themed film that is actually good. It is also just a good character study. It isn't perfect, but I think for what it was working with it's pretty good. I also think the music is a plus.
