“Lianna Massey eats pussy.” So proudly declares the title protagonist of Sayles’s compassionate portrait of a newly lesberated woman. Ditching her supercilious husband to embark on a passionate affair with her child-psychology prof, Lianna is introduced to the myriad pleasures of the dyke bar, not least the thrill of being cruised.
