Movies like “The Girl”

A painter (‘the artist’) and a lounge-room singer (‘the girl’) continue a passionate lesbian love affair. ‘The girl’ is actually a high-class prostitute whose pimp (‘the man’) is putting the pressure on both women to end the relationship. Words like ‘prostitute’ and ‘pimp’ seem too harsh for the sexy-smooth atmosphere of this fascinating look at obsessive love.

Whitney (a dude) loves Taylor (a chick), but it’s a question who really wears the pants in their relationship (and if they’re both committed to it). He cooks, cleans, irons and wants to bring their 4-year relationship toward a marriage after the death of his father; she wants to booze it up and continue playing the field (more or less) while lying about her activities to her strict and rigidly religious bible-quoting parents. Adding to this is Aldo, a male model and former prom date of Taylor’s, who lives with them and does what he can to sabotage their relationship, aiming to have Taylor to himself. Can the Whitney-Taylor pairing succeed in a romantic comedy or is it destined to fall apart in a mild satire on gender roles?
