34. Nina’s Heavenly Delights (2006)

Starring: Laura Fraser, Shelley Conn Director: Pratibha Parmar

Director Pratibha Parmar may be better known for her documentaries (she’s currently working on one about writer Alice Walker), but her romantic comedy about Nina, a woman who falls for Lisa, the new co-owner of her Scottish family’s Indian restaurant, was an instant crowd-pleaser. Combining food, love and coming out metaphors in one tasty mix (Nina must teach Lisa to, ahem, cook), Parmar delivered a feature film that tread some familiar ground in the lesbian film canon while avoiding the tragedy pitfall that mars far too many cinematic lesbian love stories.

35. Black Swan

Starring: Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis Director: Darren Aronofsky

Natalie Portman scored a Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Nina, the obsessive yet emotionally fragile ballerina whose quest to land the role of the Swan Queen in a high-profile production of Swan Lake sends her over the edge and, briefly, into the arms of her competitor, played by Mila Kunis. By the end of the film, viewers were left wondering if the sex and violence in the film were literal or metaphorical, real or imagined. Either way, and to the delight of many lesbian/bi audiences, the onscreen chemistry between Portman and Kunis was undeniable.
