Cliched, Resonant, Ambitious, Fluffy

See it if you're interested in the historical context depicted here; don't mind some trivial grandiloquence unconvincingly delivered.

Don't see it if you expect tight scripting and staging - there isn't much action here and more monologues than necessary

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy quality, historical dramas about women.

Don't see it if You need a lot of action.

August 16th, 2016

"The time jumps are occasionally jarring and confusing, but excellently create the harsh reality a lesbian minority couple at that time would likely have faced…As Catherine and Ruth, McKamie and Grajewski have electric chemistry, and watching their relationship blossom from its first moment to its last is indeed heart-wrenching...All three talented women give the audience an intimate view of the constant flight between staying true to oneself and living in society."

"A gentle feminist work about the lifelong love between two women…It’s a seemingly small story, but is packed full of moments of painful prejudice, wrapped in a soft, warm blanket of deep love. However, I do feel that the writing can be less filled with exposition and rather more interesting dialogue…I think these young women have done a fantastic job, but I feel they can evolve the piece by investing more into helping us believe they were lovers and not just friends."
