Instant gratification in the bedroom? Isn’t that what every lesbian wants? We’re going to give it to you, in the form of 5 great movies. Do you fancy British accents, like to get your kink on and find cougars sexy?
1. Loving Annabelle
A classic lesbian film that you have already seen about 5 times, but now that you can watch it instantly from Netflix, you’ll be seeing it again. Loving Annabelle follows a strong-willed teen that knows what she wants and knows how to get it. Rebellious in the eyes of the all-female Catholic boarding school she’s sent to, Annabelle rocks the boat as soon as her feet touch the sacred ground. Not only does she rock the boat, but she rocks the bed of her hot female teacher.
2. The Four-Faced Liar
Toasting women has never been so delicious. The Four-Faced Liar isn’t your typical straight girl falls for lezzie movie where the lesbian plays a sex driven siren or that ends in death and destruction, and it’s not your cookie cutter everything-falls-into-place-too-easily movie either. The Four-Faced Liar follows Molly and Greg, a straight-laced couple who, new to New York, become friends with Trip and his Brontë-loving heartbreaker of a lesbian roommate, Bridget. It doesn’t take long for the chemistry to build between Molly and Bridget in this skillfully made romance.The film is rich in character development and is filled with cheaters, liars and heartbreak, but there are no one-sided villains or good guys. Every character is human. That’s what makes this movie great. It’s real, it’s complex, it’s endearing — it’s reflective of real life.
3. My Normal
Cute, kinky and empowering. My Normal follows Natalie, a red headed bombshell who struggles with balancing her dreams of becoming a filmmaker with her love of being an in-demand dominatrix. My Normal taps into the kink community, a community often misunderstood and proposes the questions, what is normal? What makes one thing more normal than another? This film is hot, endearing and a must watch on Netflix streaming.
4. Follow My Voice
With Music of Hedwig: A moving and inspiring documentary for music lovers, LGBT activists and Hedwig and the Angry Inch aficionados. If you want to be uplifted, this is the movie you should be streaming from Netflix right now. Follow My Voice intertwines two threads: the making of the Hedwig and the Angry Inch soundtrack tribute album, which raised money for the Harvey Milk School in New York, and the lives of four teens who attend Harvey Milk School, two lesbians, a gay male and a trans woman. You get to see the making of the tribute album, a compilation of studio sessions from performers like Rufus Wainwright, Yoko Ono, Cyndi Lauper and Ben Folds, and you get into the minds and lives of the four New York queer teens, which is touching, eye opening and simultaneously sad and uplifting. Follow My Voice highlights the strength and compassion of the queer community and the difficulties that LGBT youth face.
5. My Summer of Love
Starring Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada, The Jane Austen Book Club), My Summer of Love is a British film that teeters along the line of mocking and questioning the existence of God and the validity of religion. This film is made up of beautiful cinematography, scenic images of Yorkshire, England and a staccato pace between scenes. My Summer of Love is blunt — in its dialogue, scene transitions and characters (pun intended). Who hasn’t wished Blunt was a lesbian? This movie is worth seeing for her alone.
