This film is simply amazing from it's extraordinary desert locales to the very natural performances from the two leads that will make you feel every emotion in this roller coaster of a love story that was way ahead of its time but is a true gem no less.
Enjoyable, especially considering there aren't nearly enough lesbian films out there. A 50s-esque melodrama made in the 80s, set in the 50s (???). The special features with multi-angle and multi-take shots of the sex scene were especially ridiculous.
This movie is so sexy and beautiful I'll forgive the hokey dialogue. Also it's a movie about lesbians, made by a lesbian director, where no one dies and it doesn't end in a love triangle with a man. Just a classic romance with all the ambiguities of life as a woman who loves women in the 50s.
ok tbh I loved this..... the rain kissing scene>the notebook, "what is it you want", "another 40 mins with you" convincing her girl to hop onto a moving train! instant classic.... AND a movie about gays where absolutely nothing tragic or even emotionally crippling happens? all I did was smile, A+
