thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 1. WEEKEND (2011) 🇬🇧 STARRING: TOM CULLEN, CHRIS NEW.

THE PINK 100. 1. WEEKEND (2011) 🇬🇧 STARRING: TOM CULLEN, CHRIS NEW. DIRECTOR: ANDREW HAIGH. This choice for the Greatest LGBT Film Of All Time will probably prove controversial, but this tiny film about two people falling in love is one of the most moving and heartfelt things I have ever seen on film. Set over the course of a single weekend, the film follows Russell, who meets Glen on a night out. Expecting that their tryst is just a one-night stand, both men are surprised when they find themselves connecting in the morning, but with Glen set to leave for America for good the very next day, how can they allow themselves to fall in love so fast? And while Glen battles against his feelings, refusing to allow himself to fall in love, he can't help himself. But the pair are so different and their lives and ideologies are so incompatible; so is there a way they can find around all these obstacles before Glen has to leave for America? I couldn't forgive myself for spoiling the end of this film for anyone, but I have NEVER cried as much as I did in those last three minutes. And I continue to cry each time I see it. A beautifully subtle and sensitive movie, Weekend is the first time I have seen myself up on the screen. Beyond the rich characters of all other films on this list, Weekend depicts ordinary British men falling in love, set against insurmountable odds. The stark realism of its cinematography makes it all the more believable, while its sparse use of soundtrack is perfectly judged. To anyone who has not seen Weekend, I urge you to fall in love all over again with this eminently recognisable couple. #weekend #thepink100 #tomcullen #chrisnew #andrewhaigh #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 2. CAROL (2015) 🇺🇸 STARRING: CATE BLANCHETT, ROONEY MA

THE PINK 100. 2. CAROL (2015) 🇺🇸 STARRING: CATE BLANCHETT, ROONEY MARA, KYLE CHANDLER, SARAH PAULSON. DIRECTOR: TODD HAYNES. Carol is the lesbian Brokeback Mountain. Set in 1950s New York, the film tells the story of a forbidden romance between two women. Blanchett is astonishing as Carol, a woman going through a messy divorce and is forced to choose between being herself and being a mother. Mara's understated performance opposite is just as accomplished and it is hardly surprising that both earned Oscar nominations for these roles. The film is restrained, resisting the urge to descend into melodrama at times when it could easily have done, subsequently showing the power of the unspoken pressure that is ladeled on both characters to conform. Though Carol is unusually frank and outspoken for the period, it is heartbreaking that even she is unable to overcome the oppressive status quo. Expect tears on a first viewing of this love story that will endure as one of the greatest ever told on screen.

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 3. MOONLIGHT (2016) 🇺🇸 STARRING: MAHERSHALA ALI, JANEL

THE PINK 100. 3. MOONLIGHT (2016) 🇺🇸 STARRING: MAHERSHALA ALI, JANELLE MONAE, NAOMIE HARRIS, TREVANTE RHODES, ANDRE HOLLAND. DIRECTOR: BARRY JENKINS. Moonlight was undoubtedly a landmark moment for LGBT cinema. Winning Best Picture at the Oscars, not only does it follow a gay protagonist, but also a black one. Even LGBT films have the tendency to depict the stories of rich white people, so this story about a strong black man as he grows up gay in a hostile neighbourhood is refreshingly different both as LGBT film and Oscar-winner. Over three episodes of his growing up, we see the parameters that shape Chiron, a man whose sexuality is kept behind closed doors but not repressed. We see him as a child, dealing with a crack-addicted mother, as a bullied teenager and as a young adult who is a member of a gang and a pillar of muscle. A delicately nuanced film about the expectations of masculinity, it is beautifully acted and lusciously shot in a way that similar films about urban culture rarely are.

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 4. BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (2005) 🇺🇸 STARRING: HEATH LEDGER

THE PINK 100. 4. BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (2005) 🇺🇸 STARRING: HEATH LEDGER, JAKE GYLLENHAAL, MICHELLE WILLIAMS, ANNE HATHAWAY DIRECTOR: ANG LEE. It is still the greatest injustice in the history of the Oscars that Brokeback Mountainmissed out on the Best Picture prize to the now dated Crash. A heart-wrenching story of forbidden love, this masterpiece of epic cinema places two insignificant cowboys against the backdrop of harsh social oppression, set in the sweeping landscapes of Wyoming. Both married and starting their own families, Ennis and Jack fall in love on their trips to the mountain together. But as time passes and they can't bear to be apart, the unfeasibility of their creating a life together becomes impossible for either to bear. Peppered with astonishing performances from all of its leads, Brokeback Mountain isn't just one of the finest LGBT films ever made, it's one of the greatest films of any kind. Period. Its calamitously heartbreaking story is one that will live on as one the greatest stories of star-crossed lovers in the history of modern cinema. #brokebackmountain #thepink100 #heathledger #jakegyllenhaal #michellewilliams #annehathaway #anglee #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

THE PINK 100. 5. PRIDE (2014) 🇬🇧 STARRING: BEN SCHNETZER, DOMINIC WEST, ANDREW SCOTT, GEORGE MACKAY, IMELDA STAUNTON, BILL NIGHY, PADDY CONSIDINE, JESSICA GUNNING DIRECTOR: MATTHEW WARCHUS. Words cannot describe the pure unbridled joy of watching Pride for the very first time. Based on the unlikely union between an LGBT group and a miners' union in Wales, this fizzing feel-good ensemble film intricately weaves countless strands of meaningful story together, exploring sexuality, prejudice, social inequality, family rejection and so much more, creating a perfectly balanced tapestry of comedy and drama that leaves you smiling from ear to ear. A history lesson as well as entertainment, it turns the spotlight on a truly remarkable story that reminds you that your greatest support can come from the most unlikely places. A tale of complete altruistic support, I defy you to find a film that can restore your faith in humanity more than Pride.

THE PINK 100. 6. HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH (2001) 🇺🇸 STARRING: JOHN CAMERON MITCHELL, MICHAEL PITT, MIRIAM SHOR, ANDREA MARTIN DIRECTOR: JOHN CAMERON MITCHELL. Hedwig saw the arrival of one the Gay Community's strongest voices, and by God did he arrive in force. Writing, directing and starring in this film adaptation of the off-Broadway musical, John Cameron Mitchell created a rock masterpiece in the shape of a transsexual "internationally ignored song-stylist" from Communist East Berlin. Now revived on Broadway in a hugely successful stage show, Hedwigexplores one woman's journey through sexualities and gender identities, as she wrestles to come to terms with who she really is. Set against a punk interpretation of Plato's Symposium, this indie masterpiece is equal parts a trumpet for progressive liberalism and a nostalgic ode to the era of glam rock. I could watch this film again and again. And I have. I once watched it three times in a day.

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 7. BEAUTIFUL THING (1996) 🇬🇧 STARRING: GLEN BERRY, SCO

THE PINK 100. 7. BEAUTIFUL THING (1996) 🇬🇧 STARRING: GLEN BERRY, SCOTT NEAL, LINDA HENRY, BEN DANIELS, TAMEKA EMPSON DIRECTOR: HETTIE MACDONALD. Two teenage neighbours find themselves sharing a bed one night, only to discover new feelings that they don't understand. Coming to understand their sexuality and their feelings for each other, this compelling story of sexual awakening is a life affirming ode to teenage love and a mirror held up to society's inherent homophobia in equal measure. Based on the play by Jonathan Harvey, this landmark film showed the innocence of same-sex love without any associated adult corruption that many still believe comes with homosexuality. Beautiful Thing shows that all love really is a beautiful thing and set against the soaring soundtrack of Mama Cass, the film is a beautiful thing in itself.

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 8. THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT (199

THE PINK 100. 8. THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT (1994) 🇦🇺 STARRING: HUGO WEAVING, GUY PEARCE, TERENCE STAMP, BILL HUNTER DIRECTOR: STEPHAN ELLIOTT. Despite its appallingly tacky incarnation on the stage, this bitchy and fabulous road movie remains one of the finest (and most original) of its genre. Travelling across the Australian outback to perform cabaret at Alice Springs, two drag queens and a transsexual inhabit a pink second-hand bus that takes them across the literal wilderness, as well as taking them on a journey through the wildernesses of their own lives. Despite their brazen flamboyance, none of them have come to terms with who they really are and while tempers, egos and wigs fray, so each one comes closer to discovering their true selves. This is a story about everyone's self-acceptance, but it's dragged up in heels and corsets and some of the boldest drag you will ever see on film. Stamp is the stand-out, but they are all on point. Particularly their lip-syncs to an amazing soundtrack.

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 9. MILK (2008) 🇺🇸 STARRING: SEAN PENN, JOSH BROLIN, JA

THE PINK 100. 9. MILK (2008) 🇺🇸 STARRING: SEAN PENN, JOSH BROLIN, JAMES FRANCO, EMILE HIRSCH, DIEGO LUNA DIRECTOR: GUS VAN SANT. The story of San Francisco politician Harvey Milk is Van Sant's tour-de-force. Charting the rise of the first openly gay politician to take office in the US, this remarkable story of uncompromising personal strength is respectfully and reverently painted against the newly liberated Gay Community in the Castro. But as his flame burns brighter, so too does his homophobic opposition that would eventually lead to his assassination. Winning Penn his second Oscar, this incredible story of courage in the face of tremendous adversity is the gay To Kill A Mockingbird, and its origins from real life make it all the more tragic.

THE PINK 100. 10. CALL ME BY YOUR NAME (2017) 🇮🇹 STARRING: TIMOTHEE CHALAMET, ARMIE HAMMER, MICHAEL STUHLBARG. DIRECTOR: LUCA GUADAGNINO. In this Oscar nominated film, Timothee Chalamet stars as Elio, a seventeen year-old boy who falls desperately in love with his father’s student who has come to stay at their Italian villa for the summer. Armie Hammer is infuriatingly charismatic and abrasive in equal measure, and as the pair slowly fall for each other, their burning desire is as beautiful as the sun-drenched countryside that surrounds them. A depiction of intellectual compatibility and blazing first love, Luca Guadagnino’s film received numerous accolades, while a late scene with Elio’s father, played by a brilliant Michael Stuhlbarg, gives a brilliant monologue about living life to the fullest. I defy anyone not to fall in love with this couple.

THE PINK 100. 11. THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT (2010) 🇺🇸 STARRING: ANNETTE BENING, JULIANNE MOORE, MARK RUFFALO, MIA WASIKOWSKA, JOSH HUTCHERSON DIRECTOR: LISA CHOLODENKO. The Kids Are All Right is an adoption movie with a twist. After two teenagers go on a quest to track down their biological father, their two mothers struggle with the introduction of this male figure to their lives. Embarking on a journey of sexual and personal discovery that they felt they had already been on, this post-modern take on the family drama shows a non-traditional family coming to terms with its own non-conformity. With Oscar nominations aplenty, including acting nods for Bening and Ruffalo, this heart-warming story creates a very human portrait of a thoroughly twenty-first century family. #thekidsareallright #thepink100 #juliannemoore #annettebening #markruffalo #joshhutcherson #miawasikowska #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

THE PINK 100. 12. EASTERN BOYS (2013) 🇫🇷 STARRING: OLIVIER RABOURDIN, KIRILL EMELYANOV, DANIIL VOROBYOV, EDEA DARCQUE. DIRECTOR: ROBIN CAMPILLO. This is a truly remarkable film. Set in Paris, Eastern Boys is about a man who invites a Ukrainian rentboy back to his apartment, only to be besieged by his pimp and gang, who empty his flat while he is helpless to stop them. But, wracked with guilt, the rentboy returns to apologise and the pair strike up a unlikely friendship that can only lead them to blows with the gang once again. With a scene of a home invasion that would give Funny Games a run for its money, this is a an edge-of-your-seat thriller and the most balanced and thought-provoking discussion about immigration you are ever likely to see. #easternboys #thepink100 #robincampillo #frenchcinema #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 13. A SINGLE MAN (2009) 🇺🇸 STARRING: COLIN FIRTH, JULI

THE PINK 100. 13. A SINGLE MAN (2009) 🇺🇸 STARRING: COLIN FIRTH, JULIANNE MOORE, NICHOLAS HOULT, MATTHEW GOODE. DIRECTOR: TOM FORD. In fashion-designer Ford's directorial debut, Firth is captivating in his Oscar nominated role as the bereaved George, who is unable to cope with the loss of his boyfriend a year earlier. Set in 1960s Los Angeles, the film covers just a single day; the day on which George intends to kill himself. Setting his affairs in order, George heads out into the world to experience life for the very last time. Despite its potentially bleak subject matter, A Single Man is a life-affirming story about the latter stages of grief, all stylishly captured in slick and chic detail by a director with an eye for its aesthetic. Subsequently, this is a visually stunning and emotionally gut-wrenching film, which features Firth's finest performance to date. #asingleman #thepink100 #colinfirth #juliannemoore #matthewgoode #nicholashoult #tomford #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

THE PINK 100. 14. STRANGER BY THE LAKE (2013) 🇫🇷 STARRING: PIERRE DELADONHAMPS, CHRISTOPHE PAOU, PATRICK D'ASSUMCAO. DIRECTOR: ALAIN GUIRAUDIE. Franck witnesses a murder in a cruising spot on the shore of a lake. He knows the killer, who he had sex with the previous day. But enamoured of the handsome Michel, he keeps his knowledge of the murder a secret, hoping that his collaboration will prove his newfound love to the dangerous man. A tense and brooding thriller, the film never strays from the shores of the lake, where nudity and promiscuity make up part of the landscape. Set in a world never seen on film, this shocking story of misplaced loyalty is a phenomenally absorbing anthropological cat-and-mouse thriller. #strangerbythelake #thepink100 #frenchcinema #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

THE PINK 100. 15. ORLANDO (1992) 🇬🇧 STARRING: TILDA SWINTON, BILLY ZANE, QUENTIN CRISP. DIRECTOR: SALLY POTTER. A gender-bending time travelling disbelief-suspended masterpiece, stars Swinton as the young nobleman Orlando. Commanded by Queen Elizabeth I (played with glorious campery by Quentin Crisp) to stay forever young, he does exactly that. Over the resulting centuries, he experiences British history from multiple angles, lives, relationships, even changing gender midway through. Running right until the 1990s, the character grows wiser but never loses the wide-eyed fervour of the young bewitched man. Swinton is resplendent in this Queer punk film that defies societal conventions and tips its hat to Derek Jarman at every opportunity. #orlando #thepink100 #tildaswinton #billyzane #quentincrisp #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

THE PINK 100. 17. PARIS IS BURNING (1990) 🇺🇸 DIRECTOR: JENNIE LIVINGSTON. The impact this remarkable documentary has made cannot be understated. Charting New York's drag scene in the 1980s, the film focuses on the malleability of Queer Culture, where everyone expresses who they want to be, but obviously being fierce at the same time. Observing the balls, chronicling the voguing and meeting with people from the city's leading drag families, it peels back the layers of these warm but damaged people, who have created the world where they can feel accepted. A funny film, laden with sass, Paris Is Burning spread the New York drag model around the world and shaped a whole generation of queens. And now it lives as a remarkable document of a bygone age. #parisisburning #thepink100 #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

THE PINK 100. 18. LA CAGE AU FOLLES (1978) 🇫🇷 STARRING: UGO TOGNAZZI, MICHEL SERRAULT, CLAIRE MAURIER. DIRECTOR: EDOUARD MOLINARO. An early LGBT film with widespread appeal, La Cage follows a gay couple who try to conceal their sexuality and ownership of a drag club from their son. A French farce that makes no attempt to conceal its celebration of campery, the film was an outstanding succces, leading to the Broadway musical and its eventual Hollywood remake, The Birdcage. With its older protagonists delightfully uncensored, La Cageportrays a strong and clearly loving relationship between two men within the context of prima donnas and showmanship. After its release, this film was the highest grossing foreign-language film of all time. #lacageauxfolles #thepink100 #lacage #frenchcinema #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

THE PINK 100. 19. MULHOLLAND DRIVE (2001) 🇺🇸 STARRING: NAOMI WATTS, LAURA HERRING, JUSTIN THEROUX. DIRECTOR: DAVID LYNCH. In David Lynch's trippy masterpiece, Naomi Watts stars opposite Laura Herring, who survives a car crash on the titular LA street. Left with amnesia, she teams up with Watts' doe-eyed Hollywood starlet in a journey across the city, where lines between dreams and reality are crossed, blurred and called wholly into question. Chasing a dangerous director, a mysterious blue box and a club named Silencio, whilst exploring their feelings for each other, this richly complex visual miasma of styles and genres has been named by some critics as the greatest movie of the century so far. Don't expect to understand it, but do expect to be greatly rewarded for your time. #mulhollanddrive #thepink100 #naomiwatts #lauraherring #justintheroux #davidlynch #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

THE PINK 100. 20. BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR (2013) 🇫🇷 STARRING: LEA SEYDOUX, ADELE EXARCHOPOULOS DIRECTOR: ABDELLATIF KECHICH. One of the more controversial films of the list, Blue Is The Warmest Colour won the Palme d'Or at Cannes to much critical outcry. A three hour film exploring the passionate neuroses of young first love, this slow-paced story of a girl's sexual maturity includes a long segment of explicit sex between the two girls, but its beauty is that this unflinching observation of their love for each other doesn't pan away or hide behind the pretence of being a passive observer. This intense French film shows us everything, and is all the better for it. #blueisthewarmestcolour #thepink100 #leaseydoux #adeleexarchopoulos #frenchcinema #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 21. MONSTER (2003) 🇺🇸 STARRING: CHARLIZE THERON, CHRIS

THE PINK 100. 21. MONSTER (2003) 🇺🇸 STARRING: CHARLIZE THERON, CHRISTINA RICCI, BRUCE DERN. DIRECTOR: PATTY JENKINS. Despite becoming the poster-girl for the cause of Oscar bids based on uglification, Charlize Theron's performance as notorious American serial killer Aileen Wuornos is a striking and disturbing film, whose real power comes from its in-depth exploration of the psychology of a murderer, helping to explain and even sometimes justify her actions. Though Wuornos remains a disquieting character, the depiction of her relationship with her female partner humanises her, allowing us to see the person behind the monster. A fascinating and sinister film. #monster #thepink100 #charlizetheron #christinaricci #brucedern #aileenwuornos #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 22. MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO (1991) 🇺🇸 STARRING: RIVER PHO

THE PINK 100. 22. MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO (1991) 🇺🇸 STARRING: RIVER PHOENIX, KEANU REEVES, JAMES RUSSO, DIRECTOR: GUS VAN SANT. Van Sant makes two types of films; the accessible and the arty. My Own Private Idaho is definitely the latter, but this juxtaposition of Shakespearean themes, plot and dialogue (lifted unpretentiously from Henry IV Part I, Part 2 and Henry V) and the gay hustling scene of the early 90s somehow just works. This dreamlike and sad tale of two boys hunting for somewhere they can call their home is a tragic and haunting indie with pretentions of epic grandeur. Though not easily accessible, its concept is so high that its poetic ramblings are soothing and shocking in equal part. And moments of brilliance flash from Phoenix, showing the actor that maybe he could have become. #myownprivateidaho #thepink100 #keanureeves #riverphoenix #gusvansant #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 23. THE HANDMAIDEN (2017) 🇰🇷 STARRING: MIN-HEE KIM, TA

THE PINK 100. 23. THE HANDMAIDEN (2017) 🇰🇷 STARRING: MIN-HEE KIM, TAE-RI KIM, JUNG-WOO HA, JIN-WOONG JO, HAE-SOOK KIM. DIRECTOR: CHAN-WOOK PARK. From legendary Korean director Park Chan-Wook, this period revenge saga is based on British novel Fingersmith, transferred from Victorian Britain to 19th Century Korea. Following a young pick-pocket who is recruited by a con-man to swindle an heiress out of her fortune, it becomes a complicated quadruple-cross as she falls in love with the woman she is supposed to be deceiving. Hyper-violent but beautifully shot, this has the aesthetic of Crouching Tiger but the violence of Oldboy and a plot that is positively Shakespearean. #thehandmaiden #thepink100 #chanwookpark #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 24. THE HOURS (2002) 🇺🇸 STARRING: MERYL STREEP, NICOLE

THE PINK 100. 24. THE HOURS (2002) 🇺🇸 STARRING: MERYL STREEP, NICOLE KIDMAN, JULIANNE MOORE, ED HARRIES, TONI COLLETTE, CLARE DANES, JEFF DANIELS, ALISON JANNEY. DIRECTOR: STEPHEN DALDRY. In an experimental film about the life and work of Virginia Woolf, The Hours contrasts three storylines: the life of Woolf, a parody of Mrs Dalloway set in 1950s suburbia and a woman reading the book in the present day. While Kidman and Moore are mesmerising in their storylines, Streep's projects the story against the lives of a lesbian couple who are struggling with the deterioration of their friend with AIDS. A fascinating and compelling story, the film won Oscar nominations aplenty (including winning Kidman the Best Actress award), whilst playing with a truly original narrative structure. #thehours #thepink100 #merylstreep #nicolekidman #juliannemoore #edharris #tonicollette #clairedanes #alisonjanney #stephendaldry #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 25. MY SUMMER OF LOVE (2004) 🇬🇧 STARRING: EMILY BLUNT,

THE PINK 100. 25. MY SUMMER OF LOVE (2004) 🇬🇧 STARRING: EMILY BLUNT, NATALIE PRESS, PADDY CONSIDINE. DIRECTOR: PAWEL PAWLIKOWSKI. In Emily Blunt's impressive debut, this coming of age story of obsession and deception is an angst-ridden boiling pot of lust and rich subtext. When two teenage girls meet at the start of a long hot summer, the next six weeks are spent amusing one another, before their relationship develops into something deeper and darker. As we learn to trust Blunt less and less, her girlfriend falls further and further in love with her, piling tension into this sun-drenched and atmospheric film. Smouldering, patient and paced, this superb movie is still probably Blunt's best. And yes, that includes The Devil Wears Prada. #mysummeroflove #thepink100 #emilyblunt #paddyconsidine #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride

thepinklens. THE PINK 100. 26. ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER (1999) 🇪🇸 STARRING: CECILIA RO

THE PINK 100. 26. ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER (1999) 🇪🇸 STARRING: CECILIA ROTH, MARISA PAREDES, CANDELA PENA, PENELOPE CRUZ. DIRECTOR: PEDRO ALMODOVAR. All About My Mother is a fabulous film. A young man wants to uncover the identity of his father, but his mother is intent on keeping this secret. With Spain portrayed in colourful vibrancy, the film explores the relationship between a mother and son, with inter-textual references to every film about strong women you can think of and Roth is resplendent in the central role. Add to that a fabulous transsexual and a truly endearing nun with HIV, played by Penelope Cruz, and this is a film that will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Just like any Almodovar film, this is a celebration of how colourful life can be, but this is his very best film of all. #allaboutmymother #thepink100 #pedroalmodóvar #penelopecruz #lgbt #lgbtfilm #queercinema #thepinklens #instafollow #instadaily #instagay #gaylove #gay #instalgbt #instalgbtq #instapride #instafilm #gayrights #gaypride #loveislove #gaylife #pride #instapride
