WHY IS IT IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND A DECENT LESBIAN MOVIE?
I mean, parts of this were really good. But by the end I just totally hated the main character. Relatable? Maybe. Maybe if you're a total jerk that can't communicate and doesn't seem to care about other people's feelings.
Anyway, can we please get a lesbian movie sometime soon that has real, endearing, somewhat-flawed-but-not-in-a-total-scumbag-kind-of-way characters (none of whom are straight at the beginning of the movie?) please and thank you.

It's a good film, lesbian label or not.

not in any way an amateur production, the actors can act, the lines are good, the direction, the timing, the cinematography...is all good. You will recognize a couple of the actors for sure, maybe more than a couple. Well, it's a "lesbian film", and probably sticks it in a niche, which may explain the low imdb rating. The gal has a voice and the music is good. And the love scenes are as real and intense as anything I've seen on the screen. The family dynamics are realistic, not stereotypical or forced. Only quibble maybe is that the "lesbian dilemma" that we all know is coming at the end, is handled sorta abruptly. Maybe, she just didn't want the responsiblity? Anyway, an easy film to watch, kinda scrumptious, ending may disappoint, but sh-t happens, right?

I loved this movie until the last 15 minutes. Even though it opened with the old cliché that all gays cheat every chance they get – Becks live in lover goes to LA for a singing contest and Becks drives all the way from New York to join her. Only, of course, to find her in bed with another girl when she arrives a day early. But Becks goes back to her home town St. Louis, seems to be finding herself with her music and reconnecting with some old high school friends. She is living with her strict Catholic mother, and there is tension over her sexual orientation, but they seem to be managing it. Then she meets the very petty Elyse, and starts teaching her guitar and singing. They begin to play together at the small bar where Becks plays. Its obvious a real affection for each other is developing. And, yes, they fall in love. And its refreshing, lovely, and I had great hopes that we would be treated to, finally, a happy ending to a lesbian movie. Beck’s Mom walks in on Elyse and Becks making love in her bedroom. That’s when I just had that “oh no!” feeling again. SPOILERS FOLLOW! Becks begs Elyse to leave with her since she can no longer stay in her Mother’s house and needs to go back to New York where she can earn a living. Elyse is hesitant, but she does agree. But Becks never returns to her to pick her up. I wont say any more about the ending, but it was heartbreaking and we are given no real clues as to why Becks did not keep the happiness she had found, seemed to want and need. Her Mom accused her of just being selfish and ignoring the feelings of others – the women she fell in love with, but then left. Maybe Mom was right. Was it the fear that Elyse might not be waiting for her to return and pick her up to go with her? Was it the fear of responsibility of really being in a committed relationship? What was it Becks? Why did you leave that lovely woman who was willing to give up her fancy house, her rich husband, her hometown and high school friends for you? Why Becks? Or is it written somewhere that lesbians just cant be happy? Where? OH, and that last song, We Just Want to Go Home is by far the best in the movie – seems being heartbroken is what Becks needs to create great music? Is that it? I hope I have not spoiled it for you – but you should watch it. Great movie, great love story. But only 4 stars because of the ending.

Really loved this movie. There aren't many movies made about gay women who aren't sadistic or controlling or murderous or doomed in some other way. It's not clear to a lot of people how important it is to see representations of normal, day-to-day, sometimes messy and flawed gay people on screen. We exist. No big deal.

Best LGBT film I've seen in a long time.

Brilliant!

When I started to watch this movie I thought I would get another emotive and tacky film about a tacky lesbian musician. It turned out to be a splendid film bout the challenges of lesbian love. And that's a lot in itself. The actors are good, the music is awesome and direct (that's quite something in itself), and deals with how we do not learn from our mistakes, at least no the first time around. A "live and learn" movie that is deep and real.

Extremely slow moving, typical unhappy ending for a lesbian movie
Verified purchase
The pacing of this movie is so slow, and while it had a few shining moments, it mostly came off as "let's show off this singer and this music" and had little plot to go along with it. As usual for lesbian romance movies (esp dramas), the lead romance has an unhappy ending. Surprise surprise. It wasn't an awful movie, but it was a bit of a slog to get through. Mena Suvari is lovely and intriguing on screen as always though.
