CGiii Comment

Credit to the production design - the time is captured to perfection.

This stands heads and shoulders above its lesbian contemporaries - raising the bar for consecutive lady-on-lady films.

Hopefully, future directors will take note.

The acting is precise, the direction - atmospheric and riveting.

But, it is the writing that plucks this from the mundane - an out-of-this-world tale with enough little plot twists to keep the most skeptical guessing.

Good work.
