Affinity Lesbian DVD Movie Affinity (2008, 94 min, United Kingdom)
Studio : Paramount, Logo
Director: Tim Fywell
Starring: Amanda Plummer, Anna Madeley, Anna Massey,
Anne Reid, Domini Blythe, Zoe Tapper
“Out lesbian writer Sarah Waters (Tipping the Velvet, Fingersmith) is one of the 21st century’s most brilliant novelists who does not shy away from writing sapphic romances, and her 1999 masterpiece Affinity is no exception. This beautiful, yet chilling, tale of forbidden love is set in London at the Millbank prison filled with killers and common thieves. Needing a distraction from mourning the death of her father and controlling mother, young and gorgeous Margaret (Anna Madeley) volunteers at the prison to be a "Lady Visitor" - a stately woman who shows the female inmates proper manners. She meets, and becomes enamored, with mysterious Selina (the stunning and wide-eyed Zoe Tapper) who is incarcerated for assaulting a young girl during one of her séances. Margaret’s occasional visits increase more and more to the point where she can’t stay away from the seductive spiritualist who unlocks her naïve caller’s true feelings. As the emotional and carnal tensions build, impassioned Margaret frantically plots for the illicit lovers to be together outside the prison walls, but not without a shockingly haunting conclusion. .

Aimee & Jaguar
(1999, 126 min, Germany)
Director: Max Farberbock Studio: Zeitgeist
Starring: Maria Schrader, Juliane Kohler, Johana Wokalek, Heike Makatsch

“Aimee & Jaguar” is a rare film. It leaves the audience weeping about the dire consequences an intense love has wrought, but exhilarated over the existence of such love. Aimee tells the true story of Lilly (Kohler) and Felice (Schrader), lovers in WWII Germany. Lilly is married to a Nazi officer away at the front and has many affairs while her husband is gone. Felice is the leading light of her circle of lesbians, in love with Ilse (Wokalek), but smitten with Lilly. Felice knows that the relationship is impossible, but she doesn't care. She's headstrong and she's met her soul mate. Felice is not only a lesbian, but Jewish as well . . . prime target for the Nazis to ship off to the camps. The story is told through flashbacks when Lilly is an old woman being brought to a retirement home where she happens to meet another of their circle from the war.

And THen Came Lola Lesbian DVDAnd Then Came Lola (2009, 70 min, US)
Director: Ellen Seidler, Megan Siler
Studio : Wolfe Releasing
Cast: Ashleigh Sumner, Jill Bennett, Cathy DeBuono, Jessica Graham, Jenoa Harlow, Angelyna Martinez, Linda Ignazi, Candy Tolentino, Lisa Dewey
This wonderfully fun and sexy lesbian romp takes a whiz bang tour through the streets of San Francisco as photographer Lola (the beautifully athletic Ashleigh Sumner) races to get to a crucial meeting on time. As usual, Lola is running late. Her job and her girlfriend Casey (Jill Bennett, Dante's Cove) are on the line and Lola has three chances (ala the art house classic, Run, Lola, Run) to make it right. As Lola races against the clock is Casey falling into the arms of her ex?! Will Lola make it in time? Will she come at all? Bursting with creativity and fresh cinematic style And Then Came Lola packs in everything we want in a lesbian movie: beautiful women, a great script, high-quality production values, an exciting soundtrack of hot new music — plus fun animation, hilarious laugh-out-loud reflections on lesbian life (depicted in brilliant direct-to-camera "therapy" sequences) and one of the most charismatic new lesbian actresses we've seen in years: Lola herself, played by the irresistible Ashleigh Sumner.

All Over Me Lesbian FilmAll Over Me (1997, 90 min, US)
Director: Alex Sichel Studio: New Line
Starring:Alison Follard, Tara Subkoff, Wilson Cruz, Cole Hauser, Leisha Haley
This independently made film wonderfully captures the growing pains of adolescence and the joy, tentativeness, and excitement of a gawky teenager’s emerging lesbian identity. Set in New York's Hell's Kitchen area, the story focuses on Claude (Alison Follard) and her best friend Ellen (Tara Subkoff). Claude feels completely alone, suffering not only from the typical neuroses of adolescence but from her unrequited love for Ellen, who is enthusiastically straight. Moody and uncommunicative, Claude eventually finds solace with a wannabe riot girl and fellow baby dyke, Lucy. This is a story about change, separation, and self-discovery that is both knowing and sensitive..

April's Shower Lesbian FilmApril's Shower (2003, 98 min, US)
Studio: Here!
Cast: Denise Miller, Joe Tabbanella, Maria Cina, Randall Batinkoff, Trish Doolan
Director: Trish Doolan
Screenwriter: Trish Doolan

April’s Shower is a very funny, stylish romantic comedy of heterosexual marriages, lesbian passions and true love. April (Maria Cina) is getting married and has asked Alex (Trish Doolan), a chef and her former roommate, to host her bridal shower. But why is Alex sobbing a bit too wildly as she chops the onions? And when the guests start to arrive--the nosy make-up artist, Vicky; the flaming queen, Jake; Martha-Stewart-lite, Rita; April’s menopausal mother, Fran; and a host of other screwballs and oddballs--it becomes obvious that April is not the average bride-to-be. When April’s Latina friend Sophie arrives while in the midst of a fight with her lesbian artist lover Sasha, and the pizza delivery man decides to stay and chat with Jake and Alex’s brother, the party begins to unravel in earnest. The wine and food are flowing and a host of secrets, each more startling than the next, are revealed. In Trish Doolan’s well-scripted, well-acted Altman-esque tour de force, the laughs keep coming as do the gasps. The fun and frolicsome April’s Shower never ceases to surprise.

Amour de Femme Lesbian FilmAmour de Femme A.K.A.: A Woman's Love (2001, 89 min, France)
Studio: Picture This! Home Video
Cast: Raffaela Anderson, Anthony Delon, Hélène Fillières
Director: Sylvie Verheyde

Jeanne, 35, is a successful osteopath in Paris, offering healing to others through massage and touch. Married, with a son of seven years, Jeanne expertly and willingly goes through the motions of a happy marriage, though her faraway manner belies this suggestion of satisfaction. But something unsettled brews from within. Attending a party with her husband, she meets a professional dancer named Marie, with whom she forms an immediate bond. Recalling times when she herself used to dance, Jeanne resolves to take lessons from Marie. Through dance, she begins to reacquaint herself with her own body (even as she has cared for the bodies of others), and with the expression of inner passion, which has been lacking in her marriage. When Marie reveals her sexual attraction to Jeanne, almost immediately Jeanne realizes that she feels the same way. Then, it’s only a brief matter of time before she falls in love – shocking a close friend in whom she confides, angering her husband as his suspicions of an affair grow stronger, and overwhelming Jeanne herself with waves of passion that lift her ever higher… and carry her farther and farther away from the life she has known. In a tour-de-force of direction, Sylvie Verheyde tells the compelling story of two passionate women weighing the undeniability of their love against forces that would keep them apart. Presented with depth and subtlety, the film glimmers with its director’s considerable storytelling prowess, and especially with the raw immediacy and passion of its leading performances. Helene Fillieres, as Jeanne, is a formidable screen presence: her stormy beauty simultaneously suggesting the terror with which she at first cowers from love’s promise, then lunges at it hungrily, epitomizing Jeanne’s greatest question in life: who is this woman that I am becoming? She is aptly paired with Raffaëla Anderson (of the controversial French feature BAISE MOI), whose Marie is the very picture of courageous self-determination, whether romancing Jeanne in quiet conversation, OR wildly dancing with a commanding ferocity. Though the film sidesteps easy solutions to the challenges these women face, it is exhilarating for the force and conviction with which it depicts love’s disregard for convention and timidness, in a relentless flow toward its own truth.

Antonia's Line Lesbian Film ReviewAntonia's Line (1995, 93 min, The Netherlands)
Director: Marleen Gorris Studio: Fox Lorber
Starring: Willeke van Ammelrooy, Els Dottermans,Veere Van Overloop

A celebration of the love, unity, and strength of women, this touching family chronicle/fable from lesbian director Gorris centers on four generations of women. The story, set in a small Dutch village, spans decades—from the devastation of the post-war period to the present—and follows the fiercely independent-minded Antonia (Willeke van Ammelrooy), who returns to her childhood farmhouse to till the soil and raise a family; all without the aid of the misogynistic townsfolk, a hypocritical church, and the often violence-prone men. Antonia is aided by her lesbian daughter, a granddaughter, and great-granddaughter and a group of social rejects who flock to her. This Oscar-winning Best Foreign Film is masterful storytelling that enthralls. (Dutch with English subtitles).

The Baby Formula Lesbian Film The Baby Formula (2008, 82 min, Canada )
Director:Alison Reid, Studio: Wolfe Releasing
Starring: Megan Fahlenbock, Rosemary Dunsmore, Angela Vint

One pregnancy for a loving lesbian couple is tough enough, but what if both moms are expecting? Watch the fireworks fly in this quirky and endearing mockumentary that hilariously explores the pitfalls of getting pregnant and bringing up baby(s).
Take a Christopher Guest movie such as Waiting for Guffman, add a couple of strong-willed lesbians with thunderous biological clocks, stir in an extraordinary scientific experiment, and you have the wacky comedy The Baby Formula. Traditional methods of lesbians getting pregnant — sperm banks, turkey basters--are old hat to Athena (Angela Vint) and Lilith (Megan Fahlenbock) as they willingly participate in an experimental process in which sperm is created from women’s stem cells. To complicate matters, the amorous couple has agreed to be filmed by a documentary crew that becomes increasingly obtrusive to the point that it uncovers hidden secrets, among them that Lilith is also pregnant! During the height of their 9-month journey, a family get-together filled with conservative Canadian-Irish Catholics, alcoholic gay dads, and a closeted brother brings all the chaos to a hilarious yet tender head. This comedy is the feature-length debut of talented director Alison Reid, who took her successful short Succubus to a whole new level. Underneath this brilliant dead-pan mockumentary is a poignant look at the separation of church and state, all while the ultra-sensitive mommies-to-be try not to kill each other, their families, OR the film crew!

The mating rites and the accompanying mind games of L.A. lesbians are uncovered in this knowing romantic comedy. Lauran Hoffman's script (based on her autobiographical play) centers most of the action at the West Hollywood Girl Bar where “love” comes easy and often for its denizens. Loretta (Nancy Allison Wolfe), a writer and one of the bar's bed-hopping regulars, meets and all-too-quickly falls for the self-assured Rachel (Liza D'Agnostino), a bewitching aspiring actress. Their union is threatened.

Basic Instinct Bisexual Film ReviewBasic Instinct (1992, 127 min, US)
Director: Paul Verhoeven Studio: Artisan
Starring: Michael Douglas, Sharon Stone, Jeanne Tripplehorn,
George Dzunda, Dorothy Malone

When it opened at theatres, this thriller was surrounded by controversy for it raised a red flag for gays, lesbians, and feminists with its shockingly “retro” stereotypes of man-hating lesbians with a “basic instinct” for murder. The film follows Michael Douglas as a burned-out cop who falls in “lust” with the prime suspect in a series of brutal ice pick murders, lasciviously portrayed by Sharon Stone. “Basic Instinct” is seen by some as the despicable leader of “the lesbian as killer” genre, and others view it as a sexy tale of a lesbian who enjoys the pleasure of other women as well as sticking ice picks into men.

Director: Anne Wheeler Studio: Trimark/Trimark
Starring: Wendy Crewson, Karyn Dwyer, Christina Cox, Anne-Marie MacDonald, Peter Outerbridge, Marya Delver, Kevin Mundy, Tony Nappo, Jay Brazeau
Winner of Audience Awards in the Philadelphia, London and Toronto Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals, this enjoyable tale tells of lesbian love winning against all the odds. When 19-year-old Maggie’s mother calls and says she is moving in, Maggie, who quit law school and has been sleeping on the couch at the lesbian book store, must find a sublet apartment and make it livable fast. To complicate matters, she has just met Kim, an artistic road warrior who has rolled into town and moved into both Maggie’s heart and ‘her new home. But Maggie hasn’t come out to her mother yet so it’s time to hide the sex toys and “straighten up.” Add to the picture her lovesick best friend Judy, a transsexual estranged from her family; her uptight lesbian boss; and Maggie’s randy teen brother who gets a few lessons on life, and you get an entertaining romantic comedy of errors and the frailty of the human heart.

Between Women Lesbian Film Review Between Two Women (2001, 92 min, Great Britain)
Director: Steven Woodcock, Studio: Image
Starring: Barbara Marten, Andriana Carroll, Andrew Dunn
Ellen Hardy walks through the narrow streets of a small industrial mill town in post WWII England each afternoon to collect her son Victor from school. Accompanied by an ear-shattering cacophony of steam engines and machinery, the sojourns brightens her grim existence as the wife of a mill worker Geoff. The main attraction of Ellen at Victor's school is not her son's budding art talents, but his art teacher Kathy. As the friendship between the two deepens, Ellen's marriage takes a back seat. After a terrible summer vacation choices are made about the relationship that change the lives of all four people forever. This exquisitely beautiful love story set in a grimy working-class English mill town provocatively explores the perils of lesbian life in the '50s. Set against a bleak industrial landscape, this austerely beautiful film is one of the best films about love between women. Between Two Women is a compellingly film evocative of a time, place and attitude both not-so-distant and worlds away..

Big Dreams in Little Hope Lesbian Film Big Dreams in Little Hope (2007, 70 min, US)
Director: Erin Greenwell, Studio: Wolfe Releasing
Starring: Emily Burton, Julie Goldman
What starts out as a routine assignment for an uptight, career-driven reporter and her cheery, inquisitive butch camerawoman quickly becomes a comedy of errors as the two find their direction in life. The odd couple, Kelly and Linda, (respectively Emily Burton from Lesbian Pulp-O-Rama and Julie Goldman from the Big Gay Show on Logo) pack up the car and hit the open road as market researchers videotaping various strangers answering hypothetical questions about allergies. In true comical fashion, their personalities clash when the ambitious but often-times bitter Kelly strives to work harder to fulfill her aspirations of being a news reporter, while carefree and content Linda is just passing time until she opens her tattoo parlor. On one of their many stops is a small town called Little Hope, which is exactly what they experience -- no hope finding a hotel room because of the town’s largest event of the year -- the annual chili cook-off. The only place with a bed (and bunk beds to boot) is the youth hostel filled with a cast of characters like the awkward first-time girlfriends and the snarling manager who instills a nightly curfew. Their wacky adventure escalates when Linda hooks up with an old flame and Kelly desperately tries to find cell phone reception, which could lead to her finally achieving happiness. Director Erin Greenwell takes us on a ride through humorous misadventures jam-packed with snappy dialogue, sympathetic characters and laugh-out-loud scenarios true to classic buddy comedies -- with a lesbian twist!.

Starring: Jennifer Tilly, Gina Gershon, Joe Pantoliano
Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly star as neighbors who become lovers first, then partners in crime. The question in this film is who will betray whom. “Bound” is an unexpected accomplishment, stylishly shot and edge-of-your-seat tense. It is also a landmark for its depiction of its lesbian heroines.

This frantic lesbian comedy is an amazingly self-assured independent feature. Cliff, a slacker loser, finds that his best friend Elizabeth, a fun-loving but irrational bisexual, is hopelessly in love with an abused woman (former porn queen Ginger Lynn Allen). Things get out of control leaving the love-lorn Elizabeth no option but to abduct her love and hit the road, roaming the Midwest in a queer Thelma and Louise fashion.

(1999, 116 min, US)
Director: Kimberly Peirce Studio: Fox
Starring: Hilary Swank, Chloë Sevigny, Peter Sarsgaard, Brendan Sexton III,
Alison Folland, Alicia Goranson, Matt McGrath

One of the best films of 1999, this fictionalized drama focuses on the tragic real-life story of Brandon Teena, a biological woman (Teena Brandon) who decided quite early to live her life as a man—a decision he paid for with his life. Hilary Swank, in an Oscar-Winning performance, is riveting as Brandon, a sweet, but far-from-perfect 21-year-old drifter who just simply wanted to be a boy and love women. The harrowing tale follows Brandon as he befriends and moves in with a group of poor but fun-loving people. He also falls in love with Lana (Chloe Sevigny in an equally impressive performance), a tough-talking gal who finally meets a man who respects her and treats her right. But when Brandon is exposed as a woman, ignorance, fear, and homophobia drive two of her male friends to violently confront him.

Poor Megan (Lyonne) she may be a pretty high schooler, model student, and cheerleader who's dating the captain of the football team, but her loving parents think otherwise. You see, she's a vegetarian, she doesn't like kissing her boyfriend, and one can't ignore those Melissa Etheridge records. Afraid that their daughter will fall in with the dark forces of same-sex love, she is quickly carted off to “True Directions,” a scarily cheerful five-step de-homofication rehab camp. There she finds herself joined by a group of butch baby dykes, lipstick lesbians, and several queeny gay boys. Sapphic sparks fly when Megan locks eyes with Graham (DuVall), a tomboy beauty with no intention of going straight.

(1995, 102 min, US)

Featuring: Lily Tomlin, Susan Sarandon, Whoopi Goldberg, Shirley MacLaine, Tony Curtis,
Tom Hanks, Gore Vidal, Quentin Crisp
Inspired by the late Vito Russo's book on the depiction of homosexuality in Hollywood cinema, this documentary offers a candid mini-history of gays and lesbians onscreen. “The Celluloid Closet” takes a chronological approach to the subject, offering clips from the turn of the century through the silents, to the effeminate caricatures of the 1930s, the pitiful homosexual of the 1950s and '60s, the violently deviant homosexual of the '70s and '80s, and concluding with the squeaky clean image of recent times. While encompassing in scope, the film is simplistic; however, “The Celluloid Closet” is more than recommended. For something deeper, it is best to also read Russo's book.

This “lost” lesbian camp documentary is a priceless cinematic gem. Attempting to be objective about the “problem” of lesbianism, the film takes us to their lairs (bars, apartments, and Greenwich Village) to show us what these sexually deviant women do. There are hilarious statistics thrown in; explanations of the different types of lesbians and acted out scenes of seduction, indoctrination, and recruitment. Mothers hold hard to your daughters!
