In the Yorkshire countryside, working-class tomboy Mona meets the exotic, pampered Tasmin. Over the summer season, the two young women discover they have much to teach one another, and much to explore together.

Christian church attitudes towards LGBT rights vary from affirming, accepting and rebuking. Many denominations exist due to varied theological interpretations. A deconstruction of Scripture requires a knowledge of context and how it affects meaning. Unfortunately, many opt for a contextless literal interpretation, which can often lead to fundamental absolutism. This excellent rites-of-passage reveals its tyranny.
For you all fantasists out there: I'm glad I didn't watch the trailer before seeing this one. I think it's a movie that's better to go into with as few expectations as possible. Pauwlikowski proves himself a great talent, and he had a great story and cast with which to work. Can't ask for anything more than that, except: "can i have my top back, please?" Ouch!
The movie is a poetic tale: Pawlikowski haven't take care too much of the plot because the plot isn't the main concern, in poetic tales.
Tamsin (Emily Blunt) is so sadistic and graceful: really juicy character.
I thought all along it would be just another girly film and had a hard time focusing on it until the last parts which gave me chills about how good the story was thought through. It was nothing about girl trying to find hapiness (although they seem completely empty) but more about how good the director is at telling his. Emily Blunt comes out fascinating.
I remember liking it but I also know that it was years ago before I'd ever seen any lesbian film. Anyway, it's in my faves for being dreamy and for using both Edith Piaf and Goldfrapp on the soundtrack.
Thinking how poorly used Emily Blunt is in "Sicario", I by chance consider how impressively acting EmiBlu is. Beautifully constructed, heart-warming-and-breaking tale that makes me delightfully exciting & devastatingly sad for alluring nexus & sear cruelty. Although Blunt is impressive, but.....where in the world is Natalie Press ? In this movie, she's more sad, painful & wonderful. I miss her grumpy freckled face.
