Go Fish and outtakes from Fish Out of Water
In Go Fish, Max is a trendy, pretty, young lesbian in Chicago who is having trouble finding love. A friend sets her up with Ely, whom Max likes, but Ely is frumpy, homely, and older. Nor do they have much in common. Can Max learn to look past the packaging? (Directed by Rose Troche; 1994, 83 minutes).
