Happy Wine Wednesday! I'm back this week with Abbey and a very new special guest - Marcus - to discuss the delightful rom com, Fire Island.
Our conversation kicks off with our thoughts on one of the things the writers did really well - intimacy. We share our favorite romantically intimate scenes between Noah and Will, along with our favorite platonic intimate moment between Noah and Howie.
We discuss director Andrew Ahn's thoughts on the benefits of having an all queer cast when filming romantically intimate scenes like the beautifully shot rain scene. Next, we get into one of my favorite themes - chosen family. One of the delightful parts of Fire Island is its exploration of chosen family and intimate, but platonic bonds. Marcus and Abbey share their thoughts on how the writers explored variances in the gay experience on Fire Island — a place considered by some as a haven for the LGBTQ+ community — as well as the variances in the kinds of relationships gay people value.
Because Abbey has now joined me to discuss two properties known for featuring full frontal male nudity, I had to ask their thoughts on whether Fire Island could have benefitted from the same. We talk replay value of Fire Island and whether or not we would like a sequel to the film. As always, we close with our thirsty thoughts.
Thanks so much for listening!
Friendly reminder - we drink, we know things, and we use adult language.
And be sure to give our amazing guest Abbey a follow over on Twitter and on Instagram. You can find Marcus on Twitter here.
