Finally a fun film for gender Queers
25 August 2014 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This is probably the only movie of its kind of out there, finally something that's actually for Queer people and tackles a serious story from a fun and playful stance. I watched the film in San Francisco during Frameline and it was a really fun experience. This film is Not for everyone. It's not trying to be anything but what it is, which is pretty darn original. The characters at times are larger than life but comically so, where you feel completely engrossed in each of their worlds as the two main characters travel through.

It tackles some serious issues, suicide, child abandonment, abuse etc, but does it in such a comedic playful and poetic way, something I have rarely seen well delivered in small budget Indies. And that's another aspect of the film. It was made without any money, from what the filmmakers explained, and they still delivered a very watchable film, but again, it's not for everyone, the queers and weirdos will definitely appreciate it. It will take you places and you better be in for the ride or you'll fall off the wagon and hurt your tush and miss what it's all about.
