As a fledgling screenwriter in the '80s, Sharon Pollack never intended to write about lesbians. "The irony for me is that I was trying to do something mainstream originally. I wanted to sell a script and try to make a living as a writer. . . . Now there's a new concept," she says, laughing. But "mainstream," it turned out, translated into "dishonesty" for her. Even though she had an agent and her scripts generated interest, there was a common objection to her strong female characters.

Don't worry about being able to sort out the seven women who constitute the scintillating ensemble of Sharon Pollack's "Everything Relative." By the time this heart-tugging comedy-drama is over, you're deeply involved in their lives and care what happens to them. Recalling "The Return of the Secaucus Seven" rather than the more expensive but more superficial "The Big Chill," "Everything Relative" is one of the best lesbian films yet.

Outfest '96, the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, opens its 14th year tonight with "Stonewall," a tribute to the momentous beginnings of the gay rights movement, when a bunch of flamboyant drag queens in New York began a historical riot. Closing night, July 21, is the lesbian-themed "Late Bloomers," a late-in-life love story of two middle-aged women who work in the same school.
