It’s like stepping into 1920s London! Evangeline and Beatrice Eliott struggle to survive on their own after the death of their father.

They succeed [...]
Forbidden love at a girls’ boarding school. This movie could have been a fun, intense fantasy of seduction, but instead settles for disjointed, boring and depressing. Loving Annabelle has its very strong supporters, so don’t take our word for it. Watch for yourself and then let us know what you think.

This German film explores the psychology of S&M, B&D, Master and servant. A lesbian dominatrix runs a gallery show in Hamburg and ultimately must face her own desires and fears. This is one to watch more for the subject explored than for the quality of filmmaking.
Did you ever fantasize about on the road adventure? How about being whisked away by a pair of young lesbian outlaws at knife-point in a stolen taxi? That’s what happens to a frumpy lingerie clerk in this refreshing, original and substantive Argentine film.
This German film hits the San Francisco lesbian scene. Not necessarily realistically, but hey, it’s a B movie. Watch it for the novelty and naughty bits, and fast forward to keep it from dragging you to that tortuously boring why-am-I-watching-this? wasteland. Susie Bright costars. Filmed in black and white.

Stella and Lenni stuff the body in the trunk, grab the loot and take it on the lam in this fast and furious action adventure.
Quality cheese! This is what REAL hokey 70’s dykesploitation films are all about, kids. In Vampyros Lesbos you have hot stripper dykes, pretty ingénues trapped in mental wards, psychedelic nude frolicking, lots of bloody screams and plenty of screamy blood, and a super-hottie vampire countess running around in a bikini and putting the moves on [...]

In Deepa Mehta’s powerful masterpiece, modern values challenge tradition and duty, and passion challenges asceticism. Sensuous and humorous, this exquisite film is set in India and infused with Indian religious teachings, specifically the story of Ram and Sita, where Sita must undergo a trial by fire to prove her purity.
Three lesbian stories weave in and out as themes of self-discovery, loyalty, aging, loss and true love are explored.
