Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Plugging the same two actresses into different Sapphic scenarios may be a valid filmmaking strategy but it can be an extremely boring one. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The film is too schematic by half and overflows with one-dimensional characters. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Every image seems to have been Scotchgarded. – Jim Ridley, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Hw do they tell their boyfriends and parents that they're gay? Conventionally, that's how. – New York Post, Jun 24, 2010

One of the Best

This is one of the best lesbian films I've seen. A perfect depiction of what it's like to suddenly fall in love, and the passion and reality that comes along with it. There is nothing gratuitous about this film, and the intimate moments were correctly and tastefully done. The coming out processes for the two main characters make you feel for them in their personal struggles; with how their families react due to their cultures and society. Very well done, I didn't want it to end.

Don't listen to rotten tomatoes view...

Don't listen to rotten tomatoes view... they barely know any truths about lesbian sub-culture or what's good or what's not. And particularly they don't know much of lesbians of color.... I enjoyed the film and thought it was entertaining... i also bought it too...(at least rent it and decide for yourself)


This is one of my most favorite. Romantic, beautiful, sexy, intelligent. These ladies nailed this movie!!!!!
