A surprisingly realistic story about a lesbian, her straight BFF, and an elitist nerd boy, who according to the synopsis "comes between them," although that is not what happens. An adorable star-studded cast enriched with the reliability of modern ~first world problems~ such as having a mental breakdown in the drive-thru of an In-and-Out.
Funny and enchanting film about friendship and growing up. Maybe it sounds really cliche, but this film offers you another perspective and dimension about straight - lesbian friendship which haven't been told by any films (as long as I know). It's a really enjoyable film and it's not boring at all after I watch it over and over for so many times. Great music and great performance by the lead actresses.
Three stars because it avoided the predictable "lesbian falls in love with her straight BFF" storyline, instead exploring the nuances of friendship between two women who are growing up and apart. Life Partners also managed to do this without sacrificing the queer character's identity or peripheral community.
