    Ah, drat, right you are about the character's name, we'll fix that. It's been a long time since I've seen it. While I don't think the plot was based on anything that happened to Susie, I get the sense that enough of the dialog came directly from her to say that she's the basis of the character. Her new memoir Big Sex, Little Death has a great section about her running into Bob Hawke for the first time in many years and asks her if she'd seen the film. She hadn't: "It's supposed to be about lesbians, right?" He replies, "Well, lesbians, not really. It's more about... you!" Anyway, I highly recommend the whole book, it's a great read.
