good movie period, not good lesbian movie
I've been reading a lot of the comments about this movie, and i've seen it probably 3 or more times. Yet most of the comments seem to establish it as just a lesbian movie. I don't believe that. I am a lesbian yet that has nothing to do with what i think about the movie, and the same goes for the characters. Syd falls in love with Lucy but i don't see is as her "coming out as a lesbian". She's opening up to new feelings, and it just happens to be with a woman who is in a disastrous relationship already. Yet the movie itself grasps the inner depths of the characters. All the scenes seem to fold perfectly amongst each other, the subject of photography probably had something to do with it giving it a more symbiotic meaning to the story. This movie was great and every time i watch it i am left with a serene complacent feeling, even though the ending wasn't as expected.
