Kissing Jessica Stein (2001)

Film details


"SWF seeks"...after a series of calamitous dates with men, Jessica notices an intriguing ad in the personals - the only catch is, it's in the "woman seeks woman" section. Despite her customary caution, Jessica decides to answer it, and she and gallery owner Helen get on like a house on fire. To the bemusement of friends and family, an eccentric courtship ensues, and the situation comes hilariously to the boil at a wedding when Jessica has to decide whether to come out about Helen to her family.
