THE DARK SIDE OF TOMORROW
1970, Valiant International Pictures, 84 min, USA, Dir: Jack Deerson, Barbara Peeters

With their husbands out of town on business, Denise and Adria, two bored and lonely housewives living in a planned community in Chatsworth, go out for a day on the town, only to stumble upon a young lesbian couple. Igniting Adria’s curiosity and Denise’s long-repressed urges, the two friends begin a secret affair, which is soon threatened by a chance meeting with two attractive young men - who Denise fears will take away her new lover. Co-directed by Barbara Peeters (HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP) and cinematographer Jacques Deerson (TWO LANE BLACKTOP), THE DARK SIDE OF TOMORROW (aka JUST THE TWO OF US) is a low-key and clearly personal examination of sexual awakening, fear and repression. Set against the swinging hippie culture of early-’70s L.A., the film is a valuable portrait of lesbian love as part of the American experience.
