Tipping the Velvet
based on the book by sarah waters (she has written many lesbian books!)
it’s a bbc adapatation
technically a mini series but i like to see it as three hours of lesbian content heaven
it’s about this girl who falls in love with an actress and she goes to see her at the theatre five billion times until the actress notices her (that’s just the first part, other things happen to the main so watch the rest for more lesbian content~)
the main character (nan astley/king) is like… my fave. i love her.
the book is very good too!!!
honestly i have so much love for this movie/book i get all giddy just thinking of it
lesbian gangster/mob movie do i need to say more???
the main actresses are cute af (one of them is a butch lesbian!)
it’s awesome and very cool
(gonna trigger warn for use of lesbophobic slurs used by some characters/some lesbophobic violence)
Below Her Mouth
meh plot with amazing sex scenes basically?
a lot of sex scenes
i mean it like half the movie is graphic sex so if ur uncomfortable with that you probably shouldn’t watch it lol
all female cast
willa from wynonna earp!
also based on a book by sarah waters (called Fingersmith, there’s a bbc adaptation of it too which you should totally check out as well)
good quality movie right there
(putting a trigger warning here for sexual and psychological abuse and abuse in general)
one of few good swedish movies
basically about two step-sisters who fall in love (they’re not actually related i promise)
But I’m a Cheerleader
baby natasha lyonne is in this one! also i have a crush on clea duvall in this movie lol
a very cute love story tbh
you’ve probably heard of it before but idc cause it’s great
(it’s like a satire of conversion therapy so if that’s something you can’t watch i don’t recommend this movie for you in particular)
If These Walls Could Talk 2
a bunch of famous actresses (like chloë sevigny, michelle williams, natasha lyonne, ellen degeneres, etc. etc.)
divided in three segments from three different periods in time
one segment is set during the feminist movement in the 70s and features chloë sevigny as a butch lesbian with a motorcycle do i even need to say more??
Anatomy of a Love Seen
this is about two actresses who were a couple when they shot a movie together and now they have to go back and re-shoot some love scenes but they’re not a couple anymore and it’s sad af
i have basically never seen this movie in any rec lists but it’s actually one of my faves and i cry so much to this movie tbh
this is a good one
also pretty funny tbh!
it’s about a doctor who falls in love with a dancer and the doctor’s relationship with her conservative mom
it’s kind of rom-comish
Lost and Delirious
warning: very sad like super sad?
it’s about a girl who goes to a boarding school and so happens to become roommates with a lesbian couple
teen angst squared and multiplied with gay panic
The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls In Love
you may have heard of this one but if you haven’t it’s time you watch it
that woman who plays tina on the l word is a butch-ish girl in this one
VERY CUTE and chill
every time i watch this it feels like this movie is the director’s BABY like it seems like she cares about this story so much and it makes the movie feel so genuine and lovely
i want every baby lesbian to watch this, please, it’s my gift to you.
you may have heard of this one too but if you haven’t seen it yet it’s definitely worth a watch!
the heroine falls in love with the villain (that enemies to lovers trope tho!!)
old but good!
i feel like this movie is on most of these long rec lists but people probably don’t watch it cause it’s old but it is actually pretty good!
your classic “oops i thought i was straight but that woman is hot” story
Margarita With a Straw
indian girl figures out she’s bi when she goes to uni in new york and meets a lesbian girl
cute, funny, sad, it has everything tbh
The Hours (actually one of my all-time favorite movies/books!)
i love characters who are open and vocal about their anger– whether it is directed at a toxic system, person, or at an event or circumstance unique to them
i love angry characters because i am sick of anger being seen as something that is uncouth and something that should be restrained, kept quiet, never acted upon
i love angry characters because i am angry, and anger isn’t always rational, but it is real and deserves to be acknowledged –people and characters should have the right to be loud and angry and for it to not constantly be shown in a negative light
He was born as a slave and manipulated into being involved in the genocide of his own race, then forced to live with the burden of having an immortal body filled with the crying souls of the thousands of people who had died.
He devoted at least a couple of centuries conversing with over 500,000 souls, getting to know each and every one of them, befriending them, and cooperating with them.
Hohenheim did not leave his children alone. He left them in the (more than capable) hands of Trisha, where he knew they would be raised well. He trusted that Trisha would be able to explain his absence to Ed & Al without revealing the truth about his body. He couldn’t have anticipated her death, and as he was travelling the entire country he had no way of keeping in contact with Trisha to check that she and their sons were doing ok (this is assuming the Elrics didn’t have a telephone).
Hohenheim had difficulty interacting with people, even his own family. He would probably have a very hard time writing letters back home, or talking to Trisha on the phone. He more than likely thought it best to keep his distance 100% until he could return home for fear of ruining any of his relationships with his family.
Hohenheim was immortal and had already lived for hundreds of years. A year or two probably wouldn’t have seemed like a long time to somebody with such a huge lifespan. Hohenheim likely still pictured his sons as young children, even after 10 years of not seeing them.
When Hohenheim returned to Resembool he expected to be greeted by the love of his life and his two young boys standing at the doorway to his family home. Instead he found a pile of burnt rubble, Trisha’s grave, Edward’s automail, and Alphonse’s empty body.
He completely blamed himself for Ed and Al’s attempt at human transmutation and subsequent injuries. He understood that they were lonely, grieving children and in his eyes the fault was all down to him and - taboo or not - the brothers had not done anything wrong.
Despite being the most powerful character in the FMA universe, Hohenheim was a pacifist and did not fight or injure a single person in the whole series.
He always put everyone else before himself.
The things which made him happiest in the whole world were all to do with his children. Alphonse trusting him, Ed and Al helping him on the promised day, Ed calling him Dad for the first time, getting to shake Al’s hand after recovering his body… his whole life revolved around his sons as soon as he met up with them again. He was willing to sacrifice himself for Ed and Al’s sake.
He died happy because he was so proud of Ed and Al and he knew that they had made incredible friends who would look after them for the rest of their lives.
Without him everyone would be dead.
All he wanted was a normal life.
Van Hohenheim was not a bad person.
Van Hohenheim was not a bad father.
He is romantically cheesy as hell
He wears glasses just so he looks slightly different to Father
He used to fly into an Ed-like rage whenever anyone called him unintelligent
The first thing he said to Alphonse after reuniting with him was, “My vintage armor!!”
One of the first things he said to Edward after reuniting with him was, “we have the same hairstyle”.
