Storyline

Meeting your girlfriend's family for the first time can be tough. Planning to propose at her family's annual Christmas dinner - until you realize that they don't even know she's gay - is even harder. When Abby (Kristen Stewart) learns that Harper (Mackenzie Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew.

Quotes

Abby: Should I have some sort of cover story or something?
Harper: Oh, no. Just be you.
Abby: Okay.
Harper: I mean, but don't, you know, say that we're together, obviously. And, um, you know, maybe don't mention that you're... um...
Abby: Gay?
Harper: Yeah. Yeah, I think, actually, it might be better to just avoid it. But don't lie. You're a very bad liar.
Abby: No, I'm not.

Excellent. Even learned something
26 November 2020 | by djean-385-619019See all my reviews

This is a very good movie with a lot of feel good moments. Dan Levy is the man and Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis shine. As a straight man who has never had to hide who I am, I really learned something in this movie and I hope others do too.
