Directed by Donna Deitch | 1985

With Helen Shaver, Patricia Charbonneau, Audra Lindley

Director Donna Deitch had to resort to selling her house to raise money for this ravishing landmark of queer cinema, which draws from Douglas Sirk and foreshadows Todd Haynes’ Carol. In 1950s Nevada, repressed New York literature professor Vivian travels to Reno looking for a quickie divorce and finds lusty, dusty romance with a free-spirited young woman, giving mainstream audiences their first taste of tender, non-sensationalized lesbian romance.

A blast of lo-fi cool from the 80s underground, the debut feature from Allison Anders is an offbeat road movie that travels from LA to Mexico during the waning days of the West Coast punk scene.

Juliet Bashore’s taboo-shattering quasi-documentary is a mesmerizing plunge into the 1980s porn industry in pre-gentrification San Francisco and a searing tale of toxic love between two women.
