Not Another Teen Movie Lesbian Kiss

No, because being gay seemed like it should have a level of urgency attached, and there was nothing so urgently felt here. Not in the question turning endlessly round in my mind long after it met my supposed answer and the book had been handed in. Not after it was published, my heart all aflutter when queer readers recognized it as a queer. Not in my hurt at being left out of my publisher\u2019s featured book lists during Pride. Not during the moment I recounted Portrait of a Lady on Fire to my mother, only to stop halfway through my retelling to cry. (\u201CIt was just a really sad movie.\u201D) And not in anything that long preceded all of this\u2014my intense interest in queer media as a teen, the Pride Parade I insisted on attending then too.

My eighth novel, I\u2019m the Girl, is based loosely on the Jeffrey Epstein case and follows Georgia Avis, a sixteen-year-old lesbian determined to prove her worth and escape poverty by securing a job at Aspera, an exclusive, members-only resort known for hiring pretty young things\u2014\u201CAspera girls\u201D\u2014to cater to the nation\u2019s elite. Georgia is a dreamer with big plans for herself who is acutely aware of the limits her circumstances place upon her future. Her beauty comes as a great relief. She knows her body, which she describes as \u201Cperfect\u201D throughout, offers her her greatest chance at being hired.

There\u2019s this scene in Sadie when she\u2019s tired and hurting and finds herself in the company of another girl . . . Just before they kiss, [she] has a revelation. It\u2019s not that she\u2019s queer\u2014she\u2019s always known this\u2014it\u2019s that after a lifetime of being forced to put her sister first, she wants to own the desire within, and only, for herself, I wrote in a June 2021 Instagram post my publisher would go on to quote in a Pride-themed newsletter including Sadie for the first time. Sometimes a book walks a line between what its author wants to tell you and what they hope you\u2019ll see. I remember writing that scene with my heart in my throat; putting a toe in an ocean I could give someone else\u2019s name. And \u2060how I felt, how I still feel\u2014and what it gives to me\u2014\u2060when someone Sees it.

Romantic teen drama revolves around a rich prep-school boy who falls in love with a small-town girl, and then finds out she has a terminal illness. The movie begins entertainingly enough - two enemies must set aside their differences to help rebuild the town's diner. Meanwhile, both have eyes for the same girl. But it suffers from a weak script and an overly sentimental and predictable plot. Sobieski's expressionless face doesn't help either. By Lisa Leigh Parney

Riveting, rambunctious documentary about the professional-wrestling scene, focusing on the personal experiences of the "athletes" who bash one another around in the ring. The movie reveals much about public and private aspects of this so-called sport. But stay far, far away unless you can handle the copious amounts of blood (some of it phony) and agonizing psychological problems (all of them real) that its participants face on what seems like a daily basis. 1e1e36bf2d
