Hide and Seek (1996)

http://imdb.com/title/tt0116529/

Hide and Seek is a daring exploration into wild, uncharted territory--lesbian adolescence in the 1960's. Lou is a 12 year old girl who daydreams in a tree house, tries not to watch a sex education film, wins a rock throwing contest, and is horrified to discover that her best friend is taking an interest in earrings and boys. Interwoven with Lou's story are the mostly hilarious, sometimes painful recollections of adult lesbians who try to figure out how they ever got from there to here. Completing the picture are clips from a wide array of old scientific and educational films which blend seamlessly with the beautiful black and white images of Lou's world. Hide and Seek is for every woman who's been to a slumber party and every man who wonders what went on at one.

"Hide and Seek is rueful, funny, multifaceted and sharply intelligent."
—Stuart Klawans, THE NATION

"Hide and Seek is one of the most piquant memory films I know, at once roiling with the tenderness and cruelty of adolescence and marbled by the wisdom of age."
—Scott Foundas, LA WEEKLY

"Hide and Seek is A Girl's Own Story for lesbians. Friedrich has woven a rich and provocative tapestry that assaults complacent assumptions about pubescent desire and lesbian identity, all the while raising important questions about the representation of racial and sexual fantasy life. [The film is] thoroughly engaging from beginning to end."
—Yvonne Rainer


Where the hell did this one go??? :think

Anyway, on sale here, on DVD :thumbsup hmm, price could be a problem :wall

Holy crap, that looks good.
I must have missed the first REQ.

It looks 100x better than a certain other movie of the same name.
Jesus I hated that one, so completely flawed.

Anyhoo, this one will be in my searches for a fair while :)

Good movie, though definitely nontraditional -- black and white, no plot per se, just recollections and old film and snapshots interspersed with episodes with Lou and her friends. Lou is a tomboy entering puberty and dealing with the changes in her body and the new feelings she is experiencing. Only one 2-second "special" scene, but lots of nice moments throughout.
