All Over Me / German Song
All Over Me (1997)
Directed by Alex Sichel
Alex Sichel’s penetrating feature charts a young lesbian’s sojourn of self-discovery. Alison Folland is pitch perfect as Claude, a teenager whose wish to start a band runs aground of her growing attraction for friend and potential band-mate, self-destructive Ellen. One of only a few lesbian features to receive a general release, the film is an emblem of its time, featuring music of Sleater-Kinney, Ani DiFranco, and Babes in Toyland.
Producer: Dolly Hall. Screenwriter: Sylvia Sichel. Cinematographer: Joe DeSalvo. Editor: Sabine Hoffman. Cast: Alison Folland, Tara Subkoff, Cole Hauser, Wilson Cruz, Ann Dowd.
