I’ve lamented that I’m never going to see my stories on screen until I make it happen for myself. Never have I felt that to be less true. There are so many of us out there making work for ourselves, and each other.
While the larger conflicts may fall flat, the dramatic minutia when the threesome is going well is really enjoyable to watch.
Just because you leave the movie feeling emotionally fulfilled and intellectually challenged, doesn’t mean it’s any less erotic.
The film goes beyond mere representational milestones. It’s beautiful, it’s laugh-out-loud hilarious, it has two whole musical numbers, three whole Britney Spears references, and is just bursting with queer creativity!
This is a movie about lonely queers. And it’s a movie about queers who sometimes make baffling choices.
Anyone who watches Supergirl knows just how talented Nicole Maines is and she carries this movie with ease. She’s so casually present on screen and she absolutely kills a one-liner.
Instead of counting down the days to see if we get three lines on The L Word reboot, we should be counting down the days until Simone gets to turn this short into a full-season show.
