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.
