LOVE & coming out!!
1 February 1999 | by jacquelinethSee all my reviews

This film deals with coming out, with fun but not in an idealistc world. Lesbians and gays are not pointed out as some people living alone but just as people in love. At the end of the day, is just about love and being yourself.. .
