IMDB Trailer



I know I'm a little late posting this since Christmas is already over and all, but you know how things go around the holiday season.

This was a really cute and unique story that really gave me the feel goods. In this world that we live in, I'm so glad that we are finally embracing the more untraditional relationships in our entertainment and allowing the LGBTQ community to have a the same movies that the rest of us take for granted.

The story follows Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis' characters as they make plans to go see Davis' family. Of course, the family doesn't know that Davis' character is gay, so they have to play their relationship off as friends. Everything comes to light with a huge explosion of emotions at the most inopportune time, of course, and we find out that this family is broken in so many ways. In the end, love overcomes all, but its a struggle to get there.
