“Two of Us” Exclusive Clip: Two “Old Dykes” Fight for Love in France’s Oscar Entry

Two Of Us, the romantic drama that France submitted to the Oscars this year, will be available on demand on Friday, and we have an exclusive clip for you! Two of Us follows neighbors Nina (Barbara Sukowa) and Madeline (Martine Chevallier), who have been in a relationship for years, as Madeline struggles to finally come out to her adult children, and Nina grows weary of waiting. Unlike most movies starring women in their 60s and 70s, Two Of Us is full of passion and tempestuous emotion and anger and love and desperation. It may look like something you’ve seen before, but you haven’t, and I’ll have a full review of it up on Friday!

We also have an exclusive look at the film’s alternate poster.

  1. I saw the movie back last summer when film festivals were still a thing and lockdowns just a possibility.

    I really liked the movie and it also kinda made me teary-eyed sometimes? I would definitely recommend it, but it’s also kind of a slow-paced movie, so adapt your expectations.
