Storyline

If you see only one documentary about lesbian, country-singing, comedian twins from New Zealand, make this the one! Jools and Linda Topp have become phenomenally successful among the Kiwis for the sprightly combination of comical characters and catchy ditties, and this exuberant film captures the joy they bring both to their performance and to their daily lives. If you aren't already a Topp Twins fans, you'll be one by the end of this delightful doc. Written by Outfest Film Festival

The audience applauded at the end as if it was a live concert.
31 August 2009 | by bellaella-1See all my reviews

I am a big fan of the documentary genre but I would not have chosen to see this film. I didn't know a great deal about the Topp Twins and I wasn't that interested. I went because my 60 year old mother wanted to see it. I am very glad that she did. I think this is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I was immediately engaged in the story and I found the Twins themselves to be inspirational. I enjoyed the music, laughed out loud, cried a little and came away feeling a better person simply for having spent an hour and a half with these two wonderful women. And I wasn't the only one who responded in this way. I have never before been to a film where the audience clapped along with the music and applauded at the end as if they were at a live concert. I honestly enjoyed every minute.
