okay, so you i'll risk to say you like good movies. and you're also, well, gay. so i am writing to ask if you could recommend me some good lesbian movies, but you know, good ones. sth like bitwc or, i've recently seen fried green tomatoes and liked it. you know, decent acting and all. not some bloomingtown or debs kind of, sorry if you like it, shit. any recommendation?
Hey anon! I’ll be happy to give you some recommendations. I do like me some good lesbian films. I’ll link you to the trailers too, though they don’t always do justice to the movie. The movies vary in genre and style.
My Summer of Love
Kyss Mig/Kiss Me
Reaching for the Moon (about the relationship between Elizabeth Bishop and the Brazillian architect Lota de Macedo Soares)
Aimee und Jaguar
The Kids Are All Right
Die Bittere Tränen der Petra von Kant/The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (couldn’t find a trailer do I linked to IMDB. Quite absurd film.)
Vicky Cristina Barcelona (not specifically a lesbian film, but it features a love triangle between Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. Very sensual film.)
Chloe (maybe not in your definition of ‘good’ but still worth watching, about an affair between Julianne Moore and Amanda Seyfried)
High Art (kinda depressing though)
Fucking Amal/Show me Love (couldn’t find a decent trailer)
The Hours (painfully beautiful)
La Vie D’Adèle/Blue is the Warmest Color (you already mentioned it but I’m throwing it in anyway. Very very beautiful pure film. Judge the sex scenes for yourself — there’s been lots of talk about that)
Cloudburst (great GREAT road movie about an old lesbian couple. So lovely and sweet and funny)
Desert Hearts (lovely little 80’s movie set in 50’s Nevada - I liked it)
That’s about all I can think of for now! Feel free to share this list for other people who are interested.
