“Breaking new ground in queer representation when it was released in 1995, this tender and charming tale of first love captures the muddled emotions of adolescent romance with warmth humor and refreshing authenticity.”
Touching and poignant, this acclaimed coming-of-age comedy tells the story of two teenagers whose unexpected friendship grows into the joyful wildness of first love. Randy (Laurel Holloman), a rebellious working class tomboy, meets the beautiful, popular, well-to-do Evie (Nicole Ari Parker) when she brings her Range Rover into the repair shop where Randy works after school.
Sensitive and romantic, funny and sincere, this daring film was hailed by the New York Times as “a universal story about first love, adolescent rebellion and sexual awakening” and is now celebrated as an iconic part of the 1990s queer cinema canon. Beloved by audiences, it was often referred to, with relief, as one of the few lesbian movies with a “happy ending where no one dies.” Lesbian Looks is delighted to present the newly remastered HD film (with preservation funding provided by the Sundance Institute and Strand Releasing), fresh from its Sundance 2022 re-release.
