Summary, etc.:
Agatha is an international lawyer, Jo a filmmaker. The two women are lovers. While Jo is on the road showing her films, Agatha discovers and reads her diaries. Problems ensue as Agatha's transgression leads to jealousy and a spiraling cycle of sexual obsession. Sheila Dabney and Lois Weaver star in this landmark lesbian classic. Digitally restored and available for the first time on DVD, She Must Be Seeing Things is revelatory for its representation of a new lesbian desire, a politicized eroticism that mirrored the burgeoning butch/femme scene at the time. The film was attacked by anti-porn feminists as it arrived at the height of the feminist 'Sex Wars.'
