Elisa & Marcela ★★★★½

Celebrating and liberating are imperative requirements of a worthy lesbian cinema entry, and that’s exactly what Elisa & Marcela does. Occasionally there are some unnecessary editing choices, but all in all, this biopic does justice to this little-known aspect of lesbian herstory, while unabashedly displaying how lesbian love feels and looks: out-of-this-world and inherently courageous.
