A French love classic written and directed by Diane Kurys made it to the theatres in 1983. Because of its minor complexity, it is not referred to as a lesbian romance, but the viewers get to see it somewhere or the other.
Based on two married women, played by Isabella Hupert and Miou-Miou, this French movie witnesses the magical bond between these two characters. The hidden love that they share is impressive, but it is not spoken or highlighted.

4. The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister

The story revolves around three female characters, Anne lister, Ann Walker, and Mariana Belcombe. The narrative is the same as all other lesbian movies, where two women fall in love with each other, but a twist awaits.
While Lister and Belcombe are the first love couple, the entry of the third person, Ann Walker, changes the plot. Lister then starts living with Walker and leaves Belcombe.
However, the love for Belcombe doesn’t abandon its place in Lister’s heart as she keeps confessing her love and passion in the secret diary that she has. The element of love that makes this movie worth watching with your partner is the love scenes that are filled with sensuality and romance.

Cursing her luck, she makes a step forward to find herself falling in love with another girl, Jill. Since Jamie is playing a man in the movie, Jill is casted as her reel life crush.
