Over 25 years ago, The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love was written and directed by Maria Maggenti. Maggenti started the script with a vision of a young lesbian on her bike with love notes stuffed in her pockets, and upon expanding the script, she realized she was writing about her first girlfriend and their failed relationship.
“Maggenti speaks of the letters she’s received from viewers who identified with the film. She takes the praise in that ‘90s laissez faire, Gen-X way that doubles for humility, but the film quietly became a predecessor in style and narrative for many other LGBTQ films of that era, especially those featuring lesbian protagonists such as the 1998’s Show Me Love and 1997’s All Over Me.” ~ Stacey Yvonne, Cherry Picks
