The trailer for Clea DuVall’s lesbian Christmas rom-com, Happiest Season, starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis, just dropped and wow wow wow the yuletide has never been so gay.
In case you haven’t caught the Happiest Season hype yet, here’s the official synopsis: Meeting your girlfriend’s family for the first time can be tough. Planning to propose at her family’s annual Christmas dinner — until you realize that they don’t even know she’s gay — is even harder. When Abby (Kristen Stewart) learns that Harper (Mackenzie Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew. Happiest Season is a holiday romantic comedy that hilariously captures the range of emotions tied to wanting your family’s acceptance, being true to yourself, and trying not to ruin Christmas.
I think I can tell you this at this point without getting in trouble — we’ll see! — that I visited the set of Happiest Season in Pittsburgh in February. It was the last thing I did before COVID lockdown, actually. I met everyone making the film, except Dan Levy, and I’m so excited to tell you about it later this week!
Happiest Season lands on Hulu on November 25th.
