    movie was okay but the theatre experience i had is probably one of the best one i had. i was in a room full of gay women & met this nice lesbian couple. one of them gave me a cookie from panera bread. it was good

    The lesbian rom-com we've been waiting for.

    More static, but also much more nuanced and chill than I expected.

    Somehow this movie intercuts between a sweet lesbian romance, and quiet character development scenes for the main character's mom, but I was very much into the entire thing.

    More movies by everyone involved here, please.

    Week 47. A queer film starring a queer POC actor/actress

    The script could have used some fleshing out, but the performances are very sweet, and I have to love a movie that does such a great job at finding cool locations around Chicago (the Hideout is a given, but still).

    Ok this was so fun and relatable and then the credits said EXECUTIVE PRODUCER MICHAEL SHANNON... what an ally✨
