A woman returns to her Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her for her attraction to a female childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.
On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
I've been waiting for this movie for a really long time. I've heard it's gonna be similar to the movie 'But I'm a Cheerleader' and I can say that it is but only up to a point. It seems more mature. I don't know why but I expected more plot. I was a bit disappointed when it ended and I didn't feel like anything was resolved. The main character seems so lost and we usually expect her to find her way but she didn't.
On the other side, this movie is really important because it talks about homosexuality in more mature way. And this is maybe the first time they have actually shown an accurate depiction of what the religion really says about this topic. What I find also important is that it discusses the possible causes that led to the SSA.
All in all, it's not a complete waste of time but do not expect too much.
