(from The Watermark 06/10/95)
The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls In Love is a hilarious film about a tomboyish young lesbian named Wendy who is fortunate enough to be growing up in the liberal household of her aunt and the aunt?s female lover. An outcast in her high school, she is surprised to find her affections for Evie, one of the popular girls, to be mutual. Their relationship works well, not in spite of their differences, but because of them: outgoing Wendy is from a working class household where she listens to her rock albums and dreams of starting her own band, while sheltered Evie lives with her professional consultant mother and reads Walt Whitman while listening to classical music. The film is enjoyably sincere, and the well-written (and well-acted) supporting roles enhance the comedy effectively as all of the plot elements snowball to an unbelievably funny climax. Using her own autobiographical script, writer/director Maria Maggenti has crafted a touching film that successfully captures young love: the awkwardness of the first kiss, the sadness of Evie losing her friends when she comes out to them, and the triumph of two people realizing that love means never having to face any crisis alone. This is a ?must-see? gay film, especially for teenagers.
