Saving Face

I recently stumbled across this movie as it was touted as the best lesbian comedy of the last twenty years.  In short, every scene was perfect and the movie is fantastic.  While the movie is about two woman who are falling in love it did not beat the viewer over the head with the difficult decision to come out.  The movie is actually about people (not just the leads) struggling to break free of societal and familial expectations.  The acting is fantastic (I was disappointed to see that for the most part the actors never really broke through to the next level), the script is tight and the ending is perfect.
