Hide and seek (1996) is a daring exploration into wild, uncharted territory – lesbian adolescence in the 1960’s. Lou is a twelve year old girl who daydreams in a tree house, tries not to watch a sex education film, wins a rock throwing contest, and is horrified to discover that her best friend is taking an interest in earrings and boys. Interwoven with Lou’s story are the mostly hilarious, sometimes painful recollections of adult lesbians who try to figure out how they ever got from there to here. Hide and Seek is for every woman who’s been to a slumber party and every man who wonders what went on at one.
