I just watched Tipping the Velvet....and oh my gosh, it was so good. I wasn't expecting to like it all that much judging by the cover. But I really liked it. It was all about this girl Nan and her coming of age story. Realizing she's attracted to girls and then going on to actually experiencing life, and in the process falling in love. It was set in the late 1800s in Britain. Also, I was so totally enamored/in love with Florance by the end of it :)
The actress who played her was soooooooooo pretty and, Florance, as a character was a fantastic person. She has instantly become one of my favourite lesbian characters ever. Also, the actress who played her was so good, like, I actually believed in her. I believed her as that character. When she was talking about the girl she once loved, I felt it.
At the end I was sitting on my bed going "Don't you freaking throw that Rose to Kittie!! If you do, I'll be sooooooo freaking mad" Hah. It was silly but it certainly had me paying attention.
Did I mention that I thought Florance was unfathomably attractive and if I were Nancy, I wouldn't have any doubts about who I wanted to be with? To be honest, I didn't get the attraction to Kittie. I understand the attraction to Florance absolutely and even the maid girl. But Kittie? I don't get it. Did anyone feel that way? Every time Nan had a flashback about her, I was like, what the hell? You shouldn't be thinking about her, screw her!! Am I the only one who thought that Florance kinda deserved someone better?
