From the wince-inducing title onwards, the script is laughably bad, especially when it attempts seriousnes.
| Original Score: 2/6
Buildings and their interiors fare a lot better in this sumptuously lensed and set-designed film. That's because they don't have to talk or act.
| Original Score: 2/4
Plugging the same two actresses into different Sapphic scenarios may be a valid filmmaking strategy but it can be an extremely boring one.
| Original Score: 2/5
Hw do they tell their boyfriends and parents that they're gay? Conventionally, that's how.

The film is too schematic by half and overflows with one-dimensional characters.
