The hotly anticipated and historic lesbian holiday romantic comedy Happiest Season hits Hulu on November 25. Starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis, the film marks the first LGBTQ+ holiday romcom ever made by a major studio. and though Sony won't be able to role the project out in theaters, giving it the pomp and circumstance it deserves as a result of the ongoing pandemic, fans will still get to enjoy the Clea DuVall-created feature, and those of the LGBTQ+ community may see some of their own experiences reflected onscreen as in a new clip.
With DuVall as cowriter and director, Happiest Season follows Abby (Stewart) who is heading to her girlfriend Harper's family home — Harper is played by Davis. Her plan is to propose to her there but on the way she finds out that not only has Harper not told her family that the pair ar dating, but Harper isn't even out to them. With Victor Garber, Dan Levy, Allison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Mary Steenburgen, and Burl Moseley all playing parts, the comedy takes off from there.
In a new clip, we watch Abby and Harper realize the realities of being in the family home while closeted. Within a hilarious exchange, Harper's mom turns her attention to Abby.
"Do you have a boyfriend Abby?" she asks. Well ... we've all been there!
"No," Abby responds. "But I have ... because I have had many. But not too many ... an appropriate amount. I actually just went through a break-up." The look that Harper gives Abby at this point makes it clear that this is about to be quite the tale. "He was a milk ... man."
"Ok!" Harper cuts in. "I think we'll just settle in now." At some point the lies have got to stop!
