We’ve had Queer Eye, we’ve had incredible representation in Orange Is The New Black, we’ve had our stories played out in 13 Reasons Why we’ve had our socks blown off in Sense 8. Now Netflix has made a gay film.
Are you ready for Alex Strangelove?
ALEX STRANGELOVE tells the story of Alex Truelove (Daniel Doheny), a well-rounded high school senior with a wonderful girlfriend Claire (Madeline Weinstein) and a bright future ahead of him – and with plans to achieve his last teenage milestone by losing his virginity. But things get complicated when he meets Elliot (Antonio Marziale), a handsome and charming gay kid from the other side of town, who unwittingly sends Alex on a rollercoaster journey of sexual identity, kicking off a hilarious and moving exploration of love, sex and friendship in our liberated and confusing modern times. Written and directed by Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins, Wilson), produced by Ben Stiller, Nicky Weinstock, and Jared Ian Goldman.
There’s no trailer yet, but we’ll update when that changes.
Hurrah we love it when Netflix goes queer. The film is due to be released on the 8th of June 2018.
