A Queer Film Classic: the 1996 film by Indian-born director Deepa Mehta about the burgeoning relationship between the wives of two brothers who have abandoned them emotionally. The film's unprecedented lesbian themes led to riots outside cinemas in India and necessitated police protection for the director for over a year.
