57-year-old self-identified butch lesbian Sarah has some tough decisions to make after she tests positive for the BRCA gene, a mutation that predisposes her to breast cancer. Deciding on a preventative double mastectomy, she embarks on a journey to explore her identity by looking back at her complicated relationship to Judaism, her family history, partnerships, friendships, and parenthood.


Not Quite That Trailer from Ali Grant on Vimeo.

Talking with her long-term partner Tamara and their friends at a dinner party in their home, Sarah asks questions about how they feel about their breasts and their identities. It’s not always a simple answer and each one has a unique response. Sarah finds that she has to decide what’s right for her and discovers interesting new ways to look at her body. NOT QUITE THAT is a sensitive and intimate portrait of the choices we must make to live in the world as ourselves.
