When friends Jessie and Belle go away for the weekend and drunkenly hook up, what seems like an awkward slip up to a firmly heterosexual Jessie is in fact an incredible betrayal to bisexual Belle.

Storyline

TREACLE is the story of two friends, BELLE, and JESSIE, who go on a weekend away to help Jessie get over a recent breakup. Road tripping through California, we follow them over the course of 24 hours as Belle convinces Jessie to not cancel the trip she'd originally planned to go on with her ex. Lines begin to blur between them when the always heterosexual Jessie in her drunken, post breakup loneliness kisses bisexual Belle. TREACLE aims to give a voice to the 'B' in 'LGBT'. Written by Mini Productions

Sexuality and Friendship
4 June 2021 | by ningram-59391See all my reviews

There's so much at play here, it reminded me a lot of the dynamics of Always Shine and the relationship dynamics between women. I enjoyed the interrogation of sexuality and how it specifically affects queer women and the stigma of being bisexual. Very exciting work here!
