Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls In Love, The
Director: Maria Maggenti
Starring: Laurel Holloman, Nicole Parker, Maggie Moore, Kate Stafford
Synopsis: Two high school seniors from different worlds pursue a relationship, over the objections of nearly everyone in their lives.
Quick review: Meet Randy and Evie. They are about as different as two high school girls can be. Randy is white, dresses like a boy, a lesbian, lives with a lesbian couple, poor, grounded in reality, and not the brightest gal in school. Evie is black, very feminine, has a boyfriend, lives with her single straight mother, rich, an idealist, and one of the smartest girls in the school. Well, opposites attract. Randy and Evie take the first steps toward a relationship after Randy breaks up with the married woman she's been seeing and Evie dumps her boyfriend. Despite their differences, they fall in love. But for the most part, it's a secret romance. When they take steps to take the relationship to the next level and let others in on it, everything falls apart. This is a fun coming-of-age lesbian film that doesn't get overwhelmed by weighty issues, like politics or health issues. And there have been damn few of those types of films. It's a little silly at times, and there are some plot holes so big you wonder if anyone actually thought through some scenes, but it's all done in a fun spirit that makes you forgive it's problems. What I found amazing was it earned an R rating in 1995. There's one lesbian sex scene, pretty well done with nudity, but nothing so heavy it really deserved that R.
