November 23 Hannah Free
2009 American lesbian romance film, adapted from Claudia Allen's play. A story about living, loving, and letting go. Hannah and Rachel grew up as little girls in the same small Midwest town, where traditional gender expectations eventually challenged their deep love for one another. Hannah becomes an adventurous, unapologetic lesbian and Rachel a strong but quiet homemaker. Weaving back and forth between past and present, the film reveals how the women maintained their love affair despite a marriage, a world war, infidelities, and family denial.

MOVIE: THE GYMNAST
After a devastating injury sidelines her gymnastics career, talented Jane Hawkins (Dreya Weber) settles for a career as a massage therapist. She pours the passion, strength and discipline that once fueled her sport into maintaining her new job and a loveless marriage. She gets a second chance at her dream, however, when an opportunity arises for her to perform with an acrobatic aerial performance troupe similar to Cirque du soleil. As she trains with her partner, Serena (Addie Yungmee), a closeted lesbian, Jane rediscovers her passion for performing. As the pair prepares to audition their act for a Las Vegas show, the gravitational pull between the two women becomes increasingly unavoidable.
