the guest house

A younger girl and an older woman hook up for the weekend in convenient circumstances, then fight, then reconcile. There's some sex. It's all a bit rubbish really, and for all the sex between two women, doesn't feel at all like a lesbian film, like it somehow has no heart.

lost girl

Supernatural creatures, magical powers, dark forces, friends, foes, sexy escapades, murder and mayhem, S&M, mysteries, more sexy people, outlandish plots, people having sex with literally anything that moves, low(ish) budget, hilariously bad special effects, more sex, twisted beyond belief mythology, made in Canada. Really hot cast. You with me? Excellent.

the nightwatch

The film rips along at a cracking pace - at times too fast -  trying to fit an awful lot into 90 minutes. Sarah Waters continues her reign as the queen of lesbian historical fiction, and each time someone has picked up the adaptation mantle, there's been obvious effort to do her brilliant characters the justice they so deserve.

janet king: season one

In the high-powered legal world you have to be tough. Janet is that in spades. She is also unabashedly, unashamedly gay. She takes no crap where her family or sexuality is concerned. She's a true warrior, tough skinned, suffers fools not at all, and gives a walloping several times to people who dare challenge her for her sexuality. She is without a doubt one of the strongest lesbian characters I've ever seen on TV.

trigger

I like movies that aren't afraid to talk. Sometimes it's messy, sometimes it's long-winded, but Trigger had something real to say, about love, friendship, loyalty, illness, and women in the music industry.
