Ep213Insta.png

Leigh and Ellie dive into Saving Face for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. Saving Face is a 2004 movie about a Chinese-American lesbian and her traditionalist mother who are reluctant to go public with secret loves that clash against cultural expectations. This film stars Joan Chen, Michelle Krusiec and Lynn Chen. Leigh and Ellie love this movie and have a lot to say about one of the few lesbian rom coms that we have with a happy ending. We talk about mother daughter relationships, societal expectations and forbidden love. Lez-ssentials comes complete with a Saving Face drinking game because every lesbian movie should be accompanied by heavy drinking. This episode also comes with an original Lez-ssentials song based off of the movie titled "Bad Reputation." Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

Leigh and Ellie love this movie and have a lot to say about love at first sight, British accents, why this florist is everywhere and the ridiculous DDR scene. Lez-ssentials comes complete with an Imagine Me & You drinking game because every lesbian movie should be accompanied by heavy drinking.
