The Accused Was The Most Lesbian Movie Ever Made
Behind the scenes anyway.
You remember The Accused.
The 1988 drama with Jodie Foster gang-raped at a dive bar, defended by a rather butch public prosecutor (Kelly McGillis) who helps her get retribution.
At the time, there were rumors of a fiery threeway between Jodie, Kelly, and Whitney Houston, but no one was able to confirm them, even public prosecutors.
But now that McGillis is way out of the closet (and married), we don't have to speculate anymore; clearly this film was the biggest lesba-palooza since Baby Jane.
And I'm quite sure it's far from the only gay-gay-gay McGillis film in retrospect.
Help me out here. Am I right?
