      • Apr 28, 2009

        A beautiful and touching film from Patricia Rozema and one of my favourite Canadian films. What makes it a classic however is the epic performance of Tom Melissis as Hang Glider #2.

        It is good, entertaining and even sexy. But there isn't much content beyond the unequal romance. However, it's always refreshing to see a likeable, non-psychotic lesbian couple on film. And the actresses have excellent chemistry.
