I initially saw POSM at the InsideOut Gay/Lesbian film festival of Toronto at the Tiff Bell Lightbox and liked it so much I went to see it again when it opened at the Carlton Theatre. I love the movie's quirky characters as much as I enjoy that the actors themselves are from my hometown of Toronto. With the movie set in Toronto, there are insights into Toronto's Queer community and every scene is a glimpse of this great City. Being a lesbian, I also enjoyed the fun poked at some 'typical' lesbian attributes, for example: sleep triangles and numerous friends that are exes; cat-lovers; and bike-riding, gluten-free, vegetarian wiccans. If you'd like to see a colourful, quirky romp through some of Toronto's LGBTQ communities, this movie is a must-see for you!
