HAPPIEST SEASON delivers the classic “home for the holiday” theme with a twist – the romance story is about two lesbians. What took me by surprise in this whimsical holiday treat is how gracefully the tropes we’ve come to expect in a Christmas movie work in something new.

Although HAPPIEST SEASON takes place during Christmas, it is less about the holiday and more about capturing the difficulty of being yourself in front of your family.

It is available to enjoy on Hulu.
