My Movie Monday

Odd Girl Out

Bannon's classic romance focuses on Laura (Ksenia Solo) who's attending university in the 1950s. She meets the alluring Beth, who helps her get into a sorority. Laura is drawn to Beth (Adelaide Clemens) and slowly falls in love with her. Beth has been dating a slew of guys, looking to awaken her heart, and soon finds herself torn between the burgeoning love she feels for Laura and the deep desire she feels for Charlie, a man. It's a compelling story and reflective of the attitudes in the 1950s, although with a twist: the lesbian character has a hopeful ending instead of a sad one. It's wonderful to see this work back in print because of its historical value.

This novel actually has a lot of levels to it. And it is a really good story. I'd like to see a movie of it set in its time period. I think it would had a certain nostalgic quality to it, too.
