Lesbian Movies On Amazon Prime – 20+ Titles Streaming Now

Searching for the best lesbian movies on Amazon Prime? I’ve got you covered. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite lesbian titles available to stream for free on Amazon Prime with a subscription. As well as a handful of others that are available to rent.  

The great thing about Prime is that it’s pretty awesome at streaming movies that aren’t very well known. While I love to watch the mainstream titles, it’s also nice to try out films I haven’t heard of before. 

I already wrote about the best WLW movies on Netflix. And let’s face it, you’ve probably watched all there is to watch on there. So now it’s time to delve into the best lesbian movies on Amazon Prime. 

In this article, you’ll find a combination of popular lesbian movies and lesser-known titles. All of them are well worth a watch; only some haven’t had the recognition they deserve.

So let’s get to it; here’s a list of the best lesbian movies streaming free on Amazon Prime. Plus a handful that will set you back a few dollars.

Before we get started, I should mention that this list is based on what’s currently streaming on the US Amazon Prime. Therefore, some of them might not be available in your region.

You could try using a VPN such as Surfshark; however, we don’t tend to have much success with ours when using Prime. 

Also, while I try to keep this list as up to date as possible, Amazon Prime update their collection all the time. And so, I apologise if you find that any of these movies are unavailable.

Saving Face

1. Saving Face

We absolutely love this lesbian film, which features a queer storyline between two Chinese-American women. It’s refreshing to find a movie that addresses cultural taboos and how they deal with them.

The storyline centres around Wil, a lesbian living in Manhattan who gets a shock when her mother comes to stay. Due to her very traditional upbringing, Wil has never come out to her family.

Naturally, this puts pressure on her relationship with Vivian. However, Wil soon finds out that her mother is hiding a secret of her own.

With lots of witty humour, a beautiful love story, and a fascinating insight into cultural traditions, this movie ticks all the boxes.

‘Saving Face’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister

2. The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister

This fascinating historical drama chronicles the life of 19th century Yorkshire landowner Anne Lister. In a society where homosexuality was considered taboo, Anne lived a relatively happy life as openly lesbian.

Through her thoughts and accounts in her coded diary, we are offered an insight into the life of the woman branded Britain’s first modern lesbian.

While the storyline, the costumes, and the cinematography are all excellent, we were disappointed to find Anne Lister was ‘femmed-up’ to make the movie more appealing to a broader audience.

It’s a shame to see famous butch women re-characterised time and time again. But the film is well worth a watch, nonetheless.

‘Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Princess Cyd

3. Princess Cyd

I adored this coming-of-age movie that tells the story of a young girl Cyd. When she moves to her Aunt’s place in Chicago to spend her summer there, she meets a cute barista named Katie and finds herself attracted to her. 

Syd starts to confront her fluid sexuality with her Aunts support, and a beautiful relationship develops between the two young women. Syd’s relationship with her Aunt is also incredibly endearing and fun to watch.

It’s by no means a perfect movie, but its charming and no-drama storyline is a winner in my eyes. 

‘Princess Cyd’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Blue is the warmest colour

4. Blue is the Warmest Colour

Next up, we have what is probably the most famous and controversial lesbian movie ever made.

The french movie tells the story of a teenager named Adele, who falls for eccentric art student Emma after meeting her at a lesbian bar. The film follows their relationship into early adulthood and is a painful yet beautiful portrayal of first love, lust, and obsession.  

That said, it’s important to recognise the issues surrounding this movie. First of all, it’s clear that there may be an element of exploitation by the straight male director. And the unjust treatment of both the cast and crew is unacceptable.

Overall, I can honestly say I don’t find the movie offensive or degrading. Had it been a queer woman director, I believe the movie would be celebrated for its boldness rather than condemned.

The lead actors Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux are exquisite, and the film has far more depth than the one famous sex scene. Whichever side of the fence you sit on, Blue is the Warmest Colour is a must-watch.

‘Blue is the Warmest Colour’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

More Beautiful for Having Been Broken

5. More Beautiful for Having Been Broken

If there’s ever a movie that’s going to define the saying ‘love is love’ it’s this one. While there is a lot wrong with More Beautiful for Having Been Broken, those elements are outshone by all the things that are right.

So let’s start with the storyline. Max is a broken FBI agent, who after losing her mother, travels to a small mountain town she used to visit as a child to help her heal.

What she doesn’t expect, however, is that an extraordinary special needs boy will help her in ways she could never have imagined. At the same time, a friendship with his Mother soon develops into something more.

This movie is touching in more ways than one, and we loved how it explores love in all of its forms. The chemistry between the two lead characters is great, and Cale Ferrin gives a remarkable performance as the adorable little boy Freddie. Do not miss this movie!

‘More Beautiful for Having Been Broken’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Snapshots
Snapshots

6. Snapshots

I’d never heard of Snapshots until I stumbled across it on the lesbian section of Amazon Prime. But wow, am I glad that I found it. This movie is beautiful, heartwarming, and relatable. And I dare you to watch it without shedding a tear or two.  

Based on true events, Snapshots captures the lost lesbian love story of Rose and Louise, who parted ways due to societal pressures back in the 1960s. Rose is now in her 80s, and when her daughter and granddaughter come to visit, bittersweet memories of the love of her life come flooding back.

Little does she know, Rose’s hidden past collides with other issues in the family. And now there are three generations of lies and deception to try to forgive.

‘Snapshots’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

The Handmaiden

7. The Handmaiden

This erotic South-Korean thriller is a loose adaptation of the classic lesbian novelFingersmith. Have you read it yet? You should.

In regards to the storyline, it’s very much the same as the book. A young pickpocketer assumes the handmaiden’s role for a wealthy family. It’s all part of a plan to deceive the young heiress into marrying a con man.   

Only, the handmaiden develops feelings for the heiress, and a passionate relationship develops. There are several intimate lesbian scenes in the movie that are far more erotic than those in the book. Some might even go as far as to say pornographic.

It’s one of those films that has sparked debate on whether or not it is made for the male gaze. But either way, the sex scenes are HOT, the cinematography is stunning, and the plot twist will have you reeling. 

It’s one of the best lesbian movies of all time, in my opinion. 

‘The Handmaiden’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Tru Love

8. Tru Love

If you’re looking for a lesbian movie on Prime that’s a little out of the ordinary, Tru Love is one to add to your list.

Considering I’d never even heard of this title, I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it. Not only the beautiful love story but the refreshing portrayal of lesbians in film.

The storyline centres on the relationship between three women. And no, we aren’t talking polygamy here, although there’s certainly a gap in the market for that as well.  

No, this triangle is between a Mother, her daughter, and her daughter’s friend.

When Alice loses her husband, she comes to spend time with her friend Suzanne. But Suzanne is a busy career woman, so she passes on taking care of her to her daughter, Tru.

But when the two form an unlikely connection, Suzanne is far from impressed. 

‘Tru Love’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here. 

Lesbian Holiday Movie
City of Trees

9. City of Trees

It makes us so happy to see more and more lesbian christmas movies hitting our screens.

While not the most creative of storylines, City of Trees is super sweet centring on Ainsley, returning to her hometown for the holidays. There, confronted with demons from her past, Ainsley’s chance encounter with an old classmate flips her world upside down.

We really enjoyed watching the love story develop, with great chemistry between the two lead characters. So, if you’re looking for a lighthearted movie with a happy ending, be sure to give City of Trees a chance this festive season.

‘More Beautiful for Having Been Broken’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

When Night is Falling

10. When Night is Falling

I’ll admit that I didn’t have high hopes for this next lesbian film on Amazon Prime; however, When Night is Falling turned out to be a beautiful watch.

It’s all about a conservative and religious university teacher, Camille, who’s engaged to a man and believes she knows exactly where she’s heading in life. That is until she meets the mysterious and free-spirited Petra, who’s in town working at the local circus.

Sparks fly between the two women, and naturally, they end up having a passionate affair. Now Camille must question everything she believes to be true about herself.  

An unassumingly great movie and the two lead actresses had excellent chemistry. Definitely add this one to the list!

‘When Night is Falling’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

1 Million Happy Nows

11. 1 Million Happy Nows

A real hidden gem amongst Amazon Prime’s lesbian movie library, 1 Million Happy Nows is both outstanding, yet utterly heartbreaking at the same time.

First off, I want to give kudos to the two lead actresses. Both of them provide such emotional and believable performances that we remained captivated throughout the movie. And the love portrayed between them is just beautiful.

Now for the catch, a.k.a the storyline. The movie charts the changing relationship between Lainey & Eva after Lainey is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimers. See, I told you it was going to be heartwrenching.  

Despite the tears, I am so grateful to have discovered this movie. This cruel disease is a tragic fact of life, and I was incredibly moved by how well the storyline was handled. One to watch, but be sure to have the tissues to hand.

‘1 Million Happy Nows’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Bound

12. Bound

A stellar cast and compelling plot settle Bound as one of the best lesbian films currently streaming on Amazon Prime. Interestingly, the Wachowski Sisters directed the movie – The trans women behind The Matrix and one of our favourite ever queer series, Sense 8. 

Unlike your typical lesbian rom-com, this fast-paced movie is an exhilarating thriller. It follows Violet, a gangster’s moll, living with Caesar, who launders money for the mob. However, when Violet meets Corky, an ex-con who’s decorating the flat next door, sparks fly, and they fall in love.

One day Caesar comes home with 2 million dollars of mob money, and the two women scheme to steal the money. But, of course, no great movie ever saw a plan run smoothly.

‘Bound’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here. 

The Miseducation of Cameron Post - amazon prime
The Miseducation of Cameron Post

13. The Miseducation of Cameron Post

Based on the book of the same name, The Miseducation of Cameron Post is an important and heartwarming LGBTQ+ story.

The movie opens with teenage Cameron getting intimate with the prom queen in the back of a car. After her classmates catch her, her actions result in her being sent away to a gay conversion camp called ‘pray away the gay’.

The story follows her journey as she is subjected to questionable therapies and makes friends with fellow residents.

This movie captures a realm of emotions while providing an accurate portrayal of what it’s like for some queer kids growing up in conservative families. So I’m sure you will appreciate this movie just as much as we did.

‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Cloudburst

14. Cloudburst

In this comedy-romance, a lesbian couple of 31 years escape from a nursing home when old age and a selfish granddaughter threaten to tear them apart.

Their goal is to reach Canada, where they can get married. Along the way, they pick up a male hitchhiker, and the three embark on a wild adventure.

The protagonists, Stella & Dot, are #lesbiancouplegoals. They joke about lesbian porn, carry vibrators, and the love they have for each other couldn’t be more obvious.

The film is funny and charming in equal measure, and the rare representation of an older lesbian couple is really refreshing.

‘Cloudburst’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Lesbian Movies on Amazon Prime to Rent

All the titles I have listed above should be included with your Amazon Prime subscription. However, Amazon has a whole other collection of movies that are only available for rent.

You can find a ton of lesbian and WLW titles on there, but here I’m going to list just a handful of my favourites.

Disobedience
Disobedience

15. Disobedience

The title itself is seductive enough. But In this 2017 lesbian movie, we see acclaimed actresses Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams play former lovers reunited after years apart.

Both women were born into Jewish families, only while Ronit escaped the customs expected of her, Esti is still a part of the community. Not only that, she is married. 

The two women pick up where they left off, and embark in a passionate love affair. But of course, their situation is complicated, and I’m afraid I’ll have to insist you watch the movie for the rest. 

‘Disobedience’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

lesbian love scene
Imagine me and you

16. Imagine Me & You

Imagine Me & You was one of the first WLW movies I ever watched. And despite the fact I adored it, I still didn’t clock on that I was gay for another five years.

Anyhow, the storyline centres on Rachel and Luce, who fall for each other after meeting at Rachel’s wedding. Yes, you read that right. Rachel is newly married to a man, so as you can imagine, it gets kind of messy from there.

The movie deals with a controversial subject, but it does so in a sensitive and realistic way. The two lead characters have instant chemistry, and the ending is one of my favourite endings of all time.

All things considered, Imagine Me & You, is a must-watch for anybody who’s a sucker for a good love story.

‘Imagine me & you’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Lesbian Movies
Freeheld

17. Freeheld

Julie-Anne Moore and Eliot Page star in this emotional movie, which chronicles the true story of a New Jersey police detective.

When Laurel Hester is diagnosed with terminal cancer, she requests to leave her pension benefits to her domestic partner, Stacey. However, she is denied by the state, on the basis of her sexuality.

What follows is a heartwrenching battle for equal rights. And this movie captures not only their tragic love story but also how the actions of one incredible woman helped pave the way for LGBTQ+ equal rights across America.

‘Freeheld’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

Lesbian Period Drama
Portrait of a Lady on Fire - Lesbian Period Drama

18. Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a French period drama set in the 18th century. It’s an enchanting love story that cuts right to the soul, and you’re sure to remember it long after the credits roll.

The storyline follows Marianne, who must find a way to secretly paint a wedding portrait of Héloïse, a reluctant bride-to-be. Marianne observes Héloïse by day and paints her by night, but it isn’t long before a few stolen glances between the pair develops into something more profound.

The movie is a piece of art and provides an accurate portrayal of what it is like to be in a lesbian relationship. I promise you will not regret spending the extra cash to rent this lesbian movie on Amazon Prime.

‘Portrait of a Lady on Fire’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.

But I'm a Cheerleader

19. But I'm a Cheerleader

In this cult classic, Megan is sent to a conversion therapy camp after her parents suspect she might be a lesbian.

Megan, having never questioned sexuality before is surprised. But when she meets out and proud lesbian Graham, she starts to wonder whether her parents were right after all. 

There’s a reason that But I’m a Cheerleader is considered a lesbian classic, so if you haven’t seen it already, make it a priority to do so.

Despite dealing with a serious topic, the whole movie is hilarious. And the fact that Megan is played by Natasha Lyone (Nicky from OITNB) is a great bonus.

‘But I’m a Cheerleader’ is available to watch now on Amazon Prime. You can watch the Trailer on Youtube here.
