Your Next Lesbian Date Night Movies

Winter is coming! That means snowflakes, Hanukkah gelt and snuggly movie dates with your girlfriend. What should you watch?

Imagine Me and You (2006)

Imagine Me and You

Lena Headey, who plays Cersei on Game of Thrones, is very familiar with winter. She’s also surprisingly familiar with quirky lesbian romantic comedies.

In Imagine Me and You, she plays Luce, a well-meaning florist with a heart of gold and a knack for winding up in awkward situations. She does the floral arrangements for Rachel’s (Piper Perabo) wedding, and the two women share a long look as Rachel walks down the aisle. Although Rachel marries her husband as planned, over the course of the movie the two women become friends and explore their unexpected chemistry.

This movie doesn’t break the mold of traditional romantic comedies, and it doesn’t intend to. It’s a lighthearted romp that leaves everyone feeling good (except Rachel’s husband), and it will make you and your girlfriend thank the universe for whatever tricks of fate brought you both together.

Circumstance (2011)


This Iranian family drama is much darker than Imagine Me and You. After it was released, the Iranian filmmaker was banned from returning to the country, and the film itself was banned in Iran.

It follows two upper-class Iranian women whose well-meaning intellectual parents cannot shield them from the pressures of being a woman. Atafeh (Nikohl Boosheri) and Shireen (Sarah Kazemy) become close friends after the death of Shireen’s parents, and spend much of their time partying and pushing the boundaries of social acceptance in Tehran. Their relationship becomes romantic. They fantasize about escaping to Abu Dhabi, but the return of a fundamentalist relative and a surprise arranged marriage make the girls question whether their love can survive in this country.

This is a meditative and realistic look into lesbian romance across the world that will make you reach for the tissue box more than once.

I Can’t Think Straight (2008)


Not all Middle Eastern lesbian movies have to be tragic. I Can’t Think Straight combines the rigid societal questions of Circumstance with the quirky comedy of Imagine Me and You. The tagline? “Just another British, Indian, Muslim, Arab, Christian, lesbian romantic comedy.”

A fiery London-based Jordanian Christian named Tala (Lisa Ray) falls for a demure British Muslim Indian named Leyla (Sheetah Sheth). Sparks fly – and so do some fists. Leyla is dating Tala’s best friend, Ali, and Tala is engaged. Meanwhile, they both have to contend with society’s expectations as Tala considers whether to pursue this romance in England or return to her family in Jordan, and as Leyla debates whether her love for Ali is stronger than her love for her friend.

This movie is full of twists, turns and question marks, and you may need to rewatch several sections to understand what’s going on. But overall it’s a lighthearted take on the romantic comedy drama that will warm your heart. It’s also a book, so if you can’t get enough of the characters, check out Shamim Sarif’s full novel.

New Zealand’s First Lesbian Web Series ‘Pot Luck’, Seeks Crowdfunding Support

From the gentrified streets of London to the elevators of Italy and from the movie sets of Brazil to the many apartments/houses/basketball courts/pubs/clubs/just about every other building of the United States, this year web, web series about women who love women (WLW) have taken us all over the globe.

But one place that has yet to to show off its (fictional) queer female scene is New Zealand. Until now, that is, as the Oceanic country has gotten its very first lesbian web series in Pot Luck.


Pot Luck, says its creators, “serves up contemporary lesbian life in three great flavours”. Set in Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, the series is all about three women: Mel (Nikki Si’ulepa), who is about as charming as they get, Debs (Anji Kreft), a shy butch, and Mel’s ex-girlfriend Beth (Tess Jamieson-Karaha).


The show gets its name from the ‘potluck’ dinners (a meal where each guest contributes a dish) that the three women have every week.

But, instead of just laughing, drinking and sharing some really good food (which sounds like a good time to me), they decide to turn the weekly meeting into a search for love and the “fun, sexy, and occasionally ridiculous” show follows them on this journey and as they ‘negotiate’ family life and friendship too.

Written and directed by NZ Film School and Whitirea’s Creative Writing Programme graduate Ness Simons, Pot Luck was actually inspired by Simons’ own pot luck dinners and speaking to Big Gay Picture Show she says that “there’s so much scope for story when you bring a group of women together, so it seemed like a good idea to build a series around friendship and food and the different dynamics around the table”.


Everyone can certainly agree with that and we all want more shows about more groups of women but while the first episode of Pot Luck is available now and was funded by the Emerging Artists Trust, it does need a bit of help to finish the first season.

Pot Luck is currently on the crowdfunding site Boosted where it’s seeking $22,500 to complete the remaining five episodes of the season; at the time of writing Pot Luck needs just over $4,000 to hit that goal, with 60 hours left on the clock so chip in if you want to see more of the show in future.

Queer Web Series ‘Last Life’ Features Spells, Secrets and Soulmates

What is it about about witchcraft that attracts queer female audiences? Is it the heavy focus on female friendship and empowerment, and that witch covens often work together to achieve some sort of common goal? Is it the fact that in the supernatural world of spells, demons, trolls and possessions, gender roles and heteronormativity don’t apply?

Or is it just the fact that queer women are fed up as seeing themselves as one-note characters, stifled by the storylines of men and shows about witches just seem to cater to that?

One of the most famous television shows of all time –Buffy the Vampire Slayer – covered all of those things, even if its famous femslash couple ended in misery. But with BTVS having ended its run some time ago and with the CW’s teen witch drama The Secret Circle being cancelled before it fully delved into its ‘non-het witches’ storyline, there’s been a bit of a hankering for that sort of show recently.

Could new web series Last Life fill that void? Quite possibly. The show stars a witch named Sloan, who is essentially the boss of a clan called the Bloodborn. Then there’s Taylor, who had a boyfriend named Rick, but Rick died three years ago and Taylor is still in mourning. But Sloan has actually been possessed by Rick’s soul and is trying to find Taylor, fast.


Why is Sloan so desperate to find Taylor? The rest of Sloan’s clan are intent on killing Taylor off, meanwhile, a rival clan called Alina have drugged Taylor with the help of her psychiatrist. So it’s not looking good for Sloan’s love interest but as is the case with most supernatural shows, most of the fun comes from seeing how the rivalry plays out, spells and all, and trying to figure out the mysteries of its witchy lore.

It’s also important to note that there has been some backlash from would-be viewers about the implications of Sloan being a woman possessed by Rick and if that really counts as ‘femslash’, but Last Life‘s writer and creator Elesha Barnette has explained that “it’s not a man in a woman’s body. It’s a soul. They have been both Male/Male, Female/Female, genderqueer throughout centuries of reincarnations. It’s not about gender, it’s about the connection two souls have” and that “it’s not a heteronormative web series masquerading as lesbian content”, it’s a “girl meets girl story”.

Episodes of Last Life can now be viewed KitschMix.TV.

Australia’s Most Watched Lesbian Drama ‘Starting From…Now!’ Seeks Funding

While we may argue about our favourite femslash ships and which TV shows and movies portray queer people in the best light, what we all agree on is that there simply aren’t enough queer women in our media. And when we are lucky enough to queer ladies on our screens, they’re often sidelined or even worse, reduced to just their sexuality or gender identity.

This is a problem that Australian web series Starting From…Now! has aimed to tackle as the four inner-city lesbians at the heart of its story deal with a variety of difficult subjects (including infertility, drug and alcohol abuse and lesbian couples starting families) across the course of its three seasons.

Julie Kalceff, who directs and writes the show explains that:

From the beginning, the intention was to portray complex female characters who happened to be lesbians. The series is about what it means to be human and the diversity of issues we’re confronted with on a daily basis… It just happens to be set in the LGBTI community.”

Unfortunately, while Starting From…Now!’s take on queerness is refreshing and the series has experienced massive success (the show is Australia’s most watched lesbian drama and it has amassed several million views) it needs outside help to make season four. The bar has been set at $35,000 and although it has raised just over $6,000 (with seven days to go), it has flexible funding and so even if it doesn’t reach the full $35,000 goal, it will receive every penny raised via indiegogo.

It’s also worth noting that Starting From…Now! could be a launch point for even more lady led content as the indiegogo explains that they could “potentially transition into funded film and television content” including “2 long form television series and multiple feature films in development; some of which are Starting From… Now! spin offs, all of which are led by women, and feature lesbian characters”.

We all want to see more lesbians in our media, right? Find out more here.

Elena Undone – Elena and Peyton

Another classic Nicole Conn film, Elena Undone is the love story between Elena (Necar Zadegan), a stay at home mother and pastor’s wife, and Peyton (Traci Dinwiddie), a well-known lesbian author. The two share an intense connection immediately upon meeting and sparks fly.
