Top 10 Lesbian Themed Movies of 2012

Lesbian characters in mainstream movies were few and far between in 2012, but thankfully it was an excellent year for thoughtful, provocative, witty and sexy lesbian-themed films on the LGBT festival circuit. With the help of luminaries and up and coming directors we’ve compiled our list of the ten best. Although, our list is actually comprised of nine lesbian-themed films and one trans film that was so moving we had to include it. From the nascent love in Mosquita y Mari toYoung and Wild’s kinetic sexual energy to the crowd-pleasing romance Kyss Mig, it was an excellent year in cinema. A few of the films screened in their native countries in 2011 but did take off at US festivals until this year.

Facing Mirrors:

Director Negar Azarbayjani's fearless film tells the story of Rana, who drives a cab in Iran to pay off her huband's debt. Issues of tradition and family arise when, in her cab, Rana picks up Edi, who is trans and attempting to flee the country for gender reassignment surgery. 

"Facing Mirrors is not only a moving and complicated film, with humor and intense sadness all rolled into one, it is a stunning accomplishment that the cast and crew were even able to make the film. I loved this movie!" - Guinevere Turner
