It may sound bizarre to call a movie about interracial teenage lesbian love conventional in the extreme, but The Incredibly True Adventure of 2 Girls In Love, writer-director Maria Maggenti’s first feature, works hard to deserve that description. This lightweight comedy about an affair between an avowed ”dyke” who works in a gas station and a daughter of the upper crust is filled with commonplaces from every high school romance picture ever made. Those who wish to find a note of genuineness in their evening in front of the TV should watch a rerun of My So-Called Life and not this rerun of a different sort. C+
