416: Lez-ssentials Elena Undone

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) dive into Elena Undone for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. We talk about how this film fits into the lesbian media timeline. We go on to discuss the chemistry of the actors playing Peyton and Elena and the incredibly well done intimacy scenes. We’ll let the music choices and clear "The L Word" influences slide on this one, because the scenes are so well done. This movie is based on stories of real queer people, primarily the story of the writer/director Nicole Conn and her romance with Marina Rice Bader. We talk about the tropes shown (cheating, ugh), the experience of coming out later in life (like way later), and the importance of the film for the time period. This episode also comes with an original song loosely based on Elena Undone entitled “Losing Control” written by Leigh Holmes Foster and performed by Leigh Holmes Foster and Ellie Brigida. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.
