Trash & Treasures: Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same (PRIDE MONTH)

I want you to imagine: Plan 9 From Outer Space meets Clerks, and make it gay.

This week brings us the film debut of Madeline Olnek, who longtime listeners might’ve heard us praising before for WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY. While this is definitely a 90s time capsule even if it was filmed in 2011, it’s also adorable to the nth degree. Not to mention how lovely it is to see a fat woman cast as the romantic lead.
