A good 'lesbian' film...should have three things not to happen.
For the film not to open with a same-sex sex scene. It opened with a same-sex sex scene!
For it not to include an acoustic guitar...you've guessed it, the butch roofer plays - for no apparent reason - that ubiquitous ghee-tar!
Dildo scenes...say no more!
April Mullen's film is a 'saddling bore' - replete with Bowie-esque androgyny and every cliché that every 'lesbian' film should avoid...indeed, this is an extension to the what-does-a-lesbian-bring-on-her-second-date joke...overly punctuated with what-is-now-called feminist porn [it's still porn]...too often, for too long throughout - it felt like sitting in a sleazy, mucky, porn cinema...in old Soho.
One of the boldest and sexiest dramas of the year, the new film by Canadian actor-director April Mullen (Dead Before Dawn) tells the story of an unexpected romance between two women whose passionate connection changes their lives forever.
