Elena Undone (2010)

Elena Undone opens with a hazy, slow motion shot of two women walking towards each other. A voiceover dreamily states “In love, one and one are ...one. Seldom do we get to experience the art in love.” It goes on to reference Emily Bronte and the scene reveals that we’ve actually been listening to a church sermon (a not-so-subtle transition to a stained glass window is our first hint).
The acting is quite good, with both Zadegan and Dinwiddie turning in fantastic, nuanced performances – easily outshining the sometimes-iffy dialogue. Their scenes together sparkle and shine with chemistry and life, and even the mundane details (little touches, longing looks, etc.) are played just right. Kramme is also wonderful as Nash – the most realistic (and likeable) teenage boy to appear in a lesbian film since the adventurous younger brother in Better Than Chocolate.
Peyton and Elena are, on the surface, diametrically opposed - one, a well-known lesbian writer, the other a mother and wife of a pastor - but when their paths cross, several times over, they feel compelled to connect. What begins as friendship quickly blossoms into something deeper. Peyton tries to extricate herself before her heart wants what it can't have. Elena can't imagine not having Peyton in her life. And despite the fact that she has never even considered kissing a woman, Elena is overwhelmed with a desire to do just that. Despite Peyton's reservations, Elena pushes the relationship into a full-blown affair. The two women fall deeply in love, both keenly aware a future together might be little more than a dream.
