Wish My Family Were like This!
The tagline for My Mother Likes Women reads Family just isnt what it used to be! Amen. Lets just say I wish I had a family like this. Why doesnt my mother like women!? And if only I had a sister like Elvira, played by Leonor Watling (from Pedro Almodóvars Talk to Her), well, um, oh my
Lesbian Romantic Comedy
Ok, fantasies aside, My Mother Likes Women is a fun lesbian romantic comedy worthy of a rental and a second or third viewing. The story focuses on the struggle of three sisters as they navigate the news that their mother is gay and in love with a young Czech pianist named Eliska. The sisters concoct a crazy plan to woo Eliska away from their mother-- because their mother couldnt possibly like women. At her age! This plan entails a hot interaction between Elvira and Eliskasparks fly, leaving me pining for a second version of this film called My Sister Likes Women One can only dream (Hey! Ines and Daniela! Let me know if you want to collaborate.)
Hilarious and Wacky
There are several hilarious scenes and wacky escapades. At the end, every one is happy, gay or gay-friendly, and evolved. I wish my own coming out had gone as well.
Something for Every Lesbian
The film has everything a lesbian could need: exotic accents and locales, references to Sappho, comedic highs, dramatic lows, a few outrageously exaggerated stereotypes, scenes in a lesbian bar, sexy butches and lovely Spanish femmes. See it with your sweetie, today!
