A teenage lesbian comes-of-age in this drama. Claude (Alison Folland) is a raw-boned girl graduating from high school. She spends all the time she can with her beautiful friend Ellen (Tara Subkoff). Ellen has lately gotten a new boyfriend, and has less time for their previous intimacy. Claude has a part-time job at a pizza joint in her multiracial neighborhood in New York City, and makes friends there, and in her neighborhood. Gay newcomer Luke, with whom she shares her dream of becoming a rock musician, is among her most recent acquaintances. Realizing finally that Ellen will not return her affections and that her own affections are lesbian in nature, she slowly develops the courage to act on her feelings, and she hesitantly goes to a lesbian bar, where she meets Lucy (Leisha Hailey), an older woman who can simultaneously offer her sexual guidance and help Claude with her musical aspirations. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
This movie wasn't what I thought that it would be. I figured it would be a movie of a girl coming to terms with her choice of lifestyle and losing a friend to another guy. But the story line didn't make sense to me and it wasn't very captivating. They just kept jumping around to different scenes and making the main actress look like a dog begging for a bone. I wouldn't watch this movie again and I definitely wouldn't refer it to any friends.
I really enjoyed this movie and it was one that had me thinking about it days afterward. The soundtrack is fantastic with various female fronted bands from the late 90's throughout and the acting is superb and unaffected.
The movie is more about choosing the correct path for ourselves and making other healthy choices than it being a gay romance.
