All You Need Is Love
The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love
Directed by Maria Maggenti • 1995 • United States
Starring Laurel Holloman, Nicole Ari Parker, Maggie Moore
Breaking new ground in queer representation when it was released in 1995, this tender and charming tale of first love traces the tentative relationship that develops between two high-school girls from very different worlds. Randy (Laurel Holloman) is a white, tomboyish outsider working at her aunt’s gas station; Evie (Nicole Ari Parker) is a popular, well-off Black girl with a boyfriend. As an unlikely friendship built around poetry and music deepens into attraction, director Maria Maggenti captures the muddled emotions of adolescent romance with warmth, humor, and refreshing authenticity.
Preservation funding provided by the Sundance Institute in collaboration with Strand Releasing.
