    "Oh my gawd this is probably one of the best lgbt movies I have ever watched! I was really surprised at the level of acting of all of the actors in the film, especially considering that the lead is practically a newcomer. I really felt the turmoil and confusion and it was a perfect coming-of age lgbt film that I'd most definitely recommend."

    "Brokeback Mountain - seriously, who doesn't know this film? When you think of LGBT films, this is one of the most well-known ones. It perfectly captures the complications of a hidden gay relationship and shows all the people whose lives it affects and how. In my opinion, this is a truly classic film."

    "Eddie Redmayne in this film is just WOW. His performance was truly award-winning and heart-wrenching. He made Lili really come alive and what I really loved most was that he did not over-act. It was all very natural and very emotional. Simply Superb!!"

    "Moonlight is by far one of the best movies I have ever watched that deals with minorities of all types. I love how the story centers on the growth of one character and his journey and interaction with the LGBT community and how he goes from boy to man."

    "This is a movie that my kids and I watched and we really loved it. It was funny and heartwarming, and I think it disproves the opinion that lgbt couples and families do not work out and are too complicated. Honestly, I think the movie paints a picture of a possibly unconventional but truly happy, loving family -- and that's worth watching. "

    "This film is in French and I don't typically like watching movies where I have to depend on subtitles, but I ended up watching this with one of my friends and I have to admit that I was stunned and amazed by the film. It was full of emotion and energy and it really swept me up into their world. It was all in all such a pleasant surprise for me."

    "This is such a great great movie! I love that it really shows the more "contemporary" situation in today's society and how people take it when other people come out as gay. It is not only about a boy who struggles to come out to his loved ones, but it also shows how people take that revelation and adjust to it. I've watched this film so many times I seriously lost count already!"

    "Carol is a stunning telling of a secret LGBT romance in a decade where such relationships were unthinkable. I love that the characters were developed nicely and that the cinematography really showed intimacy and secrecy."

    "This Ed Wood classic is very strange and unlike any other movie, which is maybe why it can be recommended. It pleads for tolerance is its own weird way, as it deals with cross-dressing and other contemporary issues. While not a "good" film by any means, it is it's own thing and has a lot of entertainment value, which, after all, is why people watch movies in the first place. "
