    However well or poorly it matches the truth of Emily's life, the film's vision of her long relationship with Susan is warmly funny. show more

    This is a great example of Olnek's style. It's respectful, but it's also alive. It's serious, but it's also tongue-in-cheek. Olnek's approach gives Emily room to breathe. At last. show more
