Boys on the Side
This movie captivates the viewer`s attention because at the beginning of the movie, such a strong relationship between Jane and Robin is unthinkable. As different as they could possibly be, both women bond and find a way to keep their friendship alive! The way Jane cared for Robin as she was getting very sick, protrays the interracial friendship that occurs in "Boys and the Side". As for homophobia, although it wasn`t that big of a threat between them, we observe at the very beginning how Jane was keeping her status way from Robin in fear of an unwanted reaction. And when Holly finally revealed to Robin that Jane was lesbian, there was clearly a shock in her look. Even though they were really different and led opposite lives, both women found a way to ignore anything that would`ve kept them apart.
