Loosely based on Pride & Prejudice, by Jane Austen, Joel Kim Booster gives us the yassified version of all of love, dating, and romance with his film Fire Island.
Joel Kim Booster wrote the script and stars as Noah. Bowen Yang plays his best friend, Howie. The cast also includes Margaret Cho.
The film leans into the toxicity of Mean Girls cliques, and the discomfort we all feel when it seems that we don't belong, that we're not welcome, or when we're just not visible to the people who seem to matter.
The reviews have been mixed, but it is Pride Month, so it's probably worth adding Fire Island to your watch-list.
Fire Island is streaming on Disney+
