This endearing romantic comedy about two high school girls, blue collar tomboy Randy (Laurel Holloman) and privileged, popular Evie (Nicole Ari Parker), was the first mainstream success for director Maria Maggenti, who chronicles the odd couple's relationship from tentative first steps to full-blossoming romance. Cast almost entirely with newcomers, The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love brings Randy's family (a lesbian aunt and an assortment of current and past partners), Evie's well-heeled and overprotective mother (Stephanie Barry), and a collection of friends, enemies, one ex-boyfriend (Andrew Wright), and one unsatisfactory affair (Maggie Moore) into the mix, balancing the excitement and passion of adolescent romance with the pitfalls of social and familial rejection. Maintains a light and quirky tone throughout, reminiscent in many ways of the teen comedies of John Hughes. ~ Genevieve Williams, All Movie Guide

slightly more than I expected by lividsnails March 26, 2005 - 7:02 PM PST

I almost regretted renting this movie when it arrived in the mail. I hadn't heard anything about it and it seemed a bit cliched and it's so easy for niche movies to do that and still suceed just because they're niche movies but then I popped in thinking I'd turn it off if it got too bad and ya know, it really didn't. The actors reminded me more of stage actors for some reason. Some of them over-acted a bit but still it was tolerable. Then in the second half of the movie someone suddenly turns the comedy switch on and it gets funny. Then the slightly awkward embarrassingness of the script and acting jives with that real well and brings out the humor in the adolsence angst and romance and it works. Don't know why they figured this out so late in the game but it does redeem itself. This is a halfway decent lesbian romantic comedy. Rent it for a nice, light, weekend kickback movie.

GreenCine's Most Valuable Indies: Hon. Mention
These fine indie films just missed the cut and are also deserving of a look. Each one is wholly unique, offering up a director's particular vision, often on a low budget.
cute, non-cringe-fest, romantic stuff
(need i say more?) ok, i will say more...mostly "chick flicks" with a good dose of queerness and color in the mix. also in progress, so forgive the gaps. will update as i dig deeper into green cine. thx!
