  • Cast: Ally Sheedy, Radha Mitchell, Patricia Clarkson.

A refreshingly intelligent tale of doomed lesbian love, writer/director Cholodenko's debut feature chronicles the complex romance between ambitious picture editor Syd (Mitchell) and once famous photographer Lucy Berliner (Sheedy). The over-written script has a studied, airless feel, but the scenes of sexual tension and trembling desire between Syd and Lucy achieve a palpable erotic charge.
