Originally released as a motion picture in 1994 by the Samuel Goldwyn Co
Summary: Kia, a professor, speculates with her students about who might be a lesbian in American society. She is involved with Evy and they would like Kia's roommate, Max, to meet a woman. Kia sets her up with Ely, an ex-student of hers who is in the process of terminating a long-distance relationship. They finally go out on a date and everyone insists on getting all the details
Summary: A film-festival favorite, this "groundbreaking picture" (The Hollywood Reporter) is a candid and honest look at women in love that is "visually audacious, full of surprising charm and highly entertaining" (Variety)! In her directorial debut, Rose Troche (Bedrooms & Hallways), along with her co-writer and lead actress Guinevere Turner, delivers a lively, warmhearted romantic comedy about the quest for Ms. Right that is "original, witty and delightful" (Los Angeles Times)! Feisty, beautiful Max (Turner) is an outgoing young woman looking for romance. Tired of hearing her whine about the missing "X" factor in her life, Max's roommate sets her up with bashful, older - but homely - Ely (V.S. Brodie). Needless to say, there's no sign of fireworks! But just as Max begins to think that she is destined to be alone forever, she discovers that some of life's best surprises come in plain, brown-paper packages. (1994, MGM, Facets, 800-331-6197)
