It’s been a rough theme, so we decided to close out on something fluffy: sure, this is the epitome of “we want the gays to have rights but we don’t want them to be TOO gay about it, except maybe in a funny way,” but it’s also sweet and sometimes wicked sharp satire. Plus, it’s a movie about gay men written by a gay man, making it the first movie this year where the author’s identity matches up to the identity story they’re trying to tell.
