    Review: Happiest Season

    Director Clea DuVall wanted to make a classic holiday romcom with lesbian characters and I think she succeeded admirably in Happiest Season. This film will bring on the twinkly lights, the Santas, and the love and good cheer for many holiday seasons to come. You can see it on Hulu.
