Film: Imagine Me and You
Summary: Predictable but fun story about true love.
Imagine Me and You is a romantic comedy, specifically a lesbian
romantic comedy. Like most popular current films of this kind, it
shows the protagonist discovering and coming to terms with her own
Although this basic idea for a story has been used in several films
before (such as But I'm a Cheerleader and Kissing Jessica Stein),
it continues to work because it can combine the excitement of self
discovery, the pain of being ostracised by former friends and family
members, and the romance of truly falling in love for the first time,
making for an emotionally rich story.
This lighthearted film focuses on the falling in love for the first
time aspect of the story. Even the scenes showing painful conflict
contain enough humour to make you laugh, making them that much easier
On the negative side, this film is predictable and even a little
cheesy in places, and too much of the dialogue ends up as a metaphor
for the blossoming new relationship for my liking. On the plus side,
the dialogue is funny, the film doesn't take itself too seriously,
and it has a wonderful feel good vibe.
This isn't a groundbreaking film, but it isn't meant to be. It's a
fun, soppy story about two women falling in love. If you want to
curl up on the couch with your lover and stick a film on that makes
you feel all warm inside, Imagine Me and You is ideal.
