Lesbian Film Review of The Children's Hour

"Vintage Dyke Drama" Samys Pick!! Samy's Personal Pick!!

Wyler's compelling though stagey second treatment of Lillian Hellman's play (1936's These Three was the first) tells of the devastating effects of gossip and scandalous rumors about two women. Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine are teachers at an all-girls' boarding school. When a vindictive little girl accuses the two of having an affair, their lives (and their careers) are ruined after a self-righteous community believes the unsubstantiated allegations (shades of McCarthyism!). However, the rumor also forces MacLaine to come to terms with her closeted lesbian feelings. Attempting to right the wrong of his original film which was not allowed to discuss the theme of lesbianism, Wyler rather flimsily addresses it here. The film is marred by the dreadfully anti-lesbian ending - a must in this code-era film. The performances by Hepburn and MacLaine are competent, and James Garner and Miriam Hopkins also star.

Director, co-writer and star Nisha Ganatra explore the clash between the values of a traditional Indian family and their rebel lesbian daughter in this new comedy. Reena (Ganatra) is a second generation Indian-American who rides a motorcycle, designs and photographs henna-tattoos and lives with Lisa (Jill Hennessy, of TVís Law & Order), her lovely, but commitment-fearing blonde American lover. Her defiant way of life and lack of proper decorum prove to be a constant annoyance to her mother (Madhur Jaffrey) as well as to Sarita, her happily married sister (also married to an American) and longtime rival for her motherís affections and approval. But when Sarita is unable to conceive a child, Reena, mindful of having a chance to do something her "perfect" sister canít and to gain her motherís approval volunteers to bear the child. The already strained family ties are truly tested when Reena discovers the joys of motherhood, much to the consternation and conflicting emotions of her lover, mother and sister. Filmed with a winning script infused with wit and sensitivity, the story entertainingly explores the true nature of family values. The acting is impressive, especially Madhur Jaffrey as the wry mother, a woman steeped in the ways of the old country but quite attentive to the wild ways of America. An inventive, charming, heartwarming dyke/family comedy.

Lesbian Film Review of Claire of the Moon

Claire of the Moon (1993)
Starring: Trisha Todd, Karen Trumbo, et al. Director: Nicole Conn

While not the breakthrough lesbian film which many had hoped, Claire of the Moon is an earnest, if amateurish drama of simmering female sexual desire and equally strong denial. At an oceanside women writers' retreat in Oregon, Dr. Noel Benedict (Trumbo), a brooding psychologist and lesbian author of "serious" books, finds herself rooming with her opposite -- Claire (Todd), a willowy yet cynical straight blonde woman who is determinedly messy and fun-loving. Their budding relationship becomes a tense and inadvertently amusing cat-and-mouse game of "I want you...I don't want you" as they alternately try to overcome their insecurities and accept their true feelings. A refreshingly intimate lesbian romance that works as a love story despite being a talky and didactic soap full of typical lesbian stereotypes and featuring a wooden script, stilted acting, and an overload of lingering glances.

Lesbian Film Review of Cynara - Poetry in Motion

Lesbian Film Review of Cynara - Poetry in Motion

Cynara - Poetry in Motion (1996)

Sexy period romance set in the Pacific Northwest in 1883. Girl meets girl on the beautiful shoreline and their instant attraction leads them to the bedroom. Lesbian romance meets erotica in this nicely crafted short film. Certainly a far better film than the director's previous outing, Claire of the Moon.

Desert Hearts (1986)

Region 1 DVD - TLA Films USA

An American lesbian classic!
Desert Hearts was trail-blazing in its positive depiction of a love affair between two intelligent and attractive women. An uptight English professor travels to Reno to get a divorce (the film is set in 1959), and there meets a sexy, free-spirited sculptress. Their attraction for each other and their budding love is played out in a realistic, romantic and all-together sensuous fashion. Helen Shaver and Patrice Charbonneau in the leads both give warm, expansive performances.

Very well done video the maker has created. It is highly erotic, but with a romantic flair - the element that is missing in all the lesbian erotica out there. It's a beautifully and lyrical visual experience in movie.

Lesbian Film Review of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1994)

Gus Van Sant explores deeper into his favorite theme of the plight of the outsider in this strange film. Not perfect, but it is a faithful adaptation of Robbins' classic novel. Some scenes tend to drag, but the overall effect of the film is mesmerizing. Sissy Hankshaw joins Van Sant's gallery of outsiders alongside Bob, Mike, Suzanne Stone, Will Hunting and Norman Bates..

Everything Relative (1996)

Grant it, this movie cannot compare to such greats as "Bound" (Yeah right), but it does have a lot of good undertones. One character makes a comment when referring about another's characters family troubles by saying, "We make our own families." Some mentioned stereotypical story telling, well as part of the gay community, we are a stereo type. I may as well have been on a weekend trip with my close friends.

Lesbian Film Review of Fire

Lesbian Genre Films - Fire

Fire (1997)
Starring: Shabana Azmi, Nandita Das - Director: Deepa Mehta

When I went to see this film at the cinema I was uncertain as to what I was letting myself in for. However I am glad that my friend persuaded me to give it a chance. This is a beautiful film, about a taboo subject in India, and it is handled magnificently by the director and cast alike. It follows the story of two sister-in-laws (Azmi and Das) who dare to fall in love with each other.. (click through to Amazon to read more)

Lesbian Film Review of Foxfire

Lesbian Genre Films - Foxfire

Foxfire (1996)
Starring: Hedy Burress, Angelina Jolie, et al.

Angelina Jolie's strong-willed performance in Foxfire as Legs, the charismatic outsider based on the rebellious character from Joyce Carol Oates's novel, is a very good reason to see this 1996 drama. The film updates the story from the 1950s to the '90s, but for a while the air of teenage angst and confrontation is closer to the legacy of James Dean than gun-toting/body-piercing disaffection. Bold and larger-than-life, Legs quickly gathers a group of adolescent girls around her, each of whom has been sexually abused and is dealing in her own way with the emotional consequences. (click through to Amazon to read more) Note: maybe not lesbian, but it has Angelina in it!!!!
