If These Walls Could Talk 2 (2000). This clas­sic Emmy-win­ning made-for-TV film is the story of three les­bian cou­ples who hap­pen to live, un­con­nected, over time in the same house. The three seg­ments are di­rected by Jane An­der­son, Martha Coolidge and Anne Heche re­spec­tively. The first one, set in 1961, beau­ti­fully acted by Vanessa Red­grave and Mar­ion Seldes, is about the older cou­ple who pay the price for be­ing les­bian and liv­ing in times when their re­la­tion­ship is un­recog­nised. The sec­ond, set in 1972, sees Michelle Wil­liams and Chloë Se­vi­gny work out sex­ual pol­i­tics that be­gin with re­al­i­sa­tions in a les­bian bar. The third is set in 2000, when Ellen DeGeneres and Sharon Stone make plans to have a baby to­gether.
