A holiday romantic comedy that captures the range of emotions tied to wanting your family’s acceptance, being true to yourself, and trying not to ruin Christmas. (IMDb)
I purchased this film via the google play store after seeing the trailer on various social media platforms, I was sceptical and thought it could end up being quite disappointing due to the horrendously bad LGBTQ films that have previously been released. Plus, there were a few mixed reviews floating around online which made me a little cautious.
FINALLY, a decent LGBTQ film where the characters get centre stage rather than supporting roles! Happiest Season was written and directed by Clea DuVall starring Kristen Stewart, Mackenzie Davis and Mary Steenburgen among others and they have done a cracking job with this film.
I really did not need to worry about the bad reviews I had seen, this is a brilliant film!
I enjoyed this film all the way through. There were some brilliant one liners particularly from
I sometimes find in romantic comedies there are characters which do not add a lot to the storyline. Happiest Season did not have this problem as all the characters had their part to play not one of them felt as though they were irrelevant to the developing storyline.
When trying to think of any negative points about this film I really struggle to find any! In fact There isn’t anything about this film I didn’t enjoy.
I would definitely class this as classic holiday romantic comedy which ticks all the boxes. This is the kind of film I would recommend if you are looking for a cosy, easy to watch film on a Sunday afternoon in the build up to Christmas.
I can see the Happiest Season becoming a film that I watch in the build up to Christmas for years to come!
