Snapshots (2018) a stunning, passionate, and romantic LGBTQ film released in 2018, is a must-see. Based on a true story, an 85-year-old woman admits that her true love was another woman. Snapshot is a heartfelt film.
Snapshots is a 2018 LGBTQ film that premiered. It came out in 2018. I’m not sure how I missed it, but I’m glad I now have the chance to make up for lost time. It is available on almost every video-on-demand service, including Amazon, iTunes, and YouTube.
The story is based on a true story, and it’s likely that many people have heard it before. She informs her daughter and granddaughter that the lady who had been her life’s love had been replaced by another woman.
In 1960, being a woman in love was difficult
Piper Laurie plays Rose, the grandmother, in the film. According to her daughter, Patty (Brooke Adams), and granddaughter, Allison, Rose was happily married to a guy until he died, to the best of her knowledge (Emily Baldoni).
This man was both her best friend and her husband in every sense of the word. But it was a woman she met in 1960, after they were both married, who became her true love and companion throughout her life.
Because their husbands were so busy with their jobs, the two ladies had plenty of opportunities to spend quality time together. They only had to deal with the fact that they had to share each other with their separate spouses, which was, of course, heartbreaking for everyone involved.
And, in 1960, a woman couldn’t do anything on her own without the assistance of a man. The film also mentions how, at the time of the story’s beginning, a woman couldn’t even have a credit card.
Going “out” in a culture where homosexuality was considered a medical condition was not a conscious decision. Back in the day, you were completely reliant on a man – usually your father or husband.
I’m not going to tell you the end of Louise and Rose’s story. However, it is not done in the typical “movie cliche” manner, lending the film the air of a genuine story.
Based on the Screenwriter’s Mother’s Life
Jan Miller Corran’s mother, according to Jan, was the one who told her that the love of her life was another woman. The story of Snapshots as a whole is, of course, told through the eyes of fictitious characters.
Although the novel is based on a true event, the absence of stereotypical characters makes the story feel incredibly realistic and devoid of the usual clichés.
It is never overly idealized, but it is warm and lovely, and it sheds light on the issues that the two ladies were dealing with at the time. I can’t say enough about how well this film handles such a difficult story with grit and compassion!
Furthermore, your sympathies are extended to the young Rose, who is suffering as a result of her emotions and the limited options she has. Furthermore, it breaks my heart for Rose’s grandmother version, who reminisces about the love of her life.
This is an LGBTQ film in the sense that it tells the story of a love story between two people of the same gender. The story, on the other hand, is very universal.
Furthermore, people from various cultural backgrounds or ethnicities may have been involved. Rose and Louise’s story is one that everyone can relate to.
As someone who identifies as LGBTQ (as well as a woman married to a gay man), I want to express my gratitude for the importance of LGBTQ representation in general.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been born during this time and in this society, where I was not forced to give up the love of my life because of my gender. Surprisingly, this becomes a topic of discussion in Snapshots.
A Fantastic Cast With Familiar Faces
Piper Laurie, as previously stated, plays the grandmother. To me, she’s always been the terrible mother from Stephen King’s Carrie, which starred Sissy Spacek as Carrie’s mother in 1976.
She was even nominated for an Academy Award for the role, making her the second woman in as many years to be nominated in the same category. Furthermore, I’m overjoyed that I now have this film to use as a reference for the incredible Piper Laurie. And she is, without a doubt, Snapshots’ beating heart.
Emily Baldoni, who already has a distinguished acting career, plays Allison, the granddaughter. Following her appearance in Snapshots, she went on to star in the 2013 horror mystery film Coherence, which I highly recommend if you want to see more of Emily Baldoni after seeing her in Snapshots. You’ll be begging for more!
1960’s Rose and Louise
Snapshots, which I had never heard of before seeing it, stars Shannon Collis as a young Rose. She does an excellent job of capturing Louise’s heart as the charming and innocent Rose.
Louise, a confident and seductive lady, immediately pursues Rose. She isn’t afraid to admit it or apologize for it. According to what she has to say. Don’t worry, I’m a lady. There’s no way I’m going anywhere unless I’ve been invited.
Emily Goss, who plays Louise, steals every scene she’s in and is a star in her own right. Alternatively, she and her co-star bring each scene to life to the best of their abilities.
Emily Goss, who appeared in The House on Pine Street, was already one of my favorite actors. She’s amazing in the most terrifying way possible in that one. It’s also a position that has earned her a number of honors.
Rose is completely captivated by Emily Goss’s performance as Louise in the film Snapshots. In exchange, she gives her own heart.
