Desert Hearts (1985)
This movie made me come to terms with my own sexuality
3 September 1999
I was 17 when I first watched this movie and I had never seen a lesbian film before which treated the lesbian characters with such respect. Also, I had never seen such a passionate love scene between two women, needless to say after that scene I could no longer deny my own lesbianism. Great use of Patsy Cline's music.

I loved the movie, until I read the novel
2 September 1999
I was quite disappointed in the movie after reading the novel. It was disappointing that Idgie's and Ruth's real relationship never came through in the movie. They were obviously lesbian lovers, which the movie swayed away from. It was quite annoying, and left me unsatisfied. Also, in the book Ruth is not Buddy's ex-girlfriend.

Loved it!
31 August 1999
This is perhaps the best movie I've seen this decade or last. It moved me. I've seen it about 3 times, and each time I cry. It is very violent and graphic, but these scenes were definitley needed. Grace was played wonderfully by the young actress

Go Fish (1994)
Felt its impact for days afterwards
31 August 1999
I saw this movie in the summer of 1994, as a young lesbian who was just comming out of the closet who had never had a girlfriend. I found the chemistry between Max and Ely so real, that I found myself yearning for that kind of relationship. Daria's trail was also very well done, as many lesbians do share that attitude.
