You all remember, just last year, that I was praying that more competent Directors would take on LGBT projects after Mr Park Chan-wook gave us the Award Winning Ahgassi/The Handmaiden?!!! Just last year!!! And we already have that wish of mine answered!
God is in Heaven and Almost all is right with the world!
Yeah, I have had one interesting weekend but that won’t make it here. If you are interested, go to my twitter feed (look to the left of the page). But be warned, I was…still am kind of out of it so there might be some censoring needed.
No, we are here to talk about this new trailer that just dropped! Interestingly I saw this when I went to watch Justice League so more things that are interesting that came out of this weekend.
Tis is looking to be the Feminism at MAXIMUM kind of movie. The trailer is already eye-roll inducing but that can be excused in favour of the other important theme which is same sex relationships. So not only is the movie tackling Feminism issues, which I think will take up most of the plot (It is in the title for crying out loud), there will also be the LGBT issue and we shall just have to wait and see if they will have the guts to tackle both issues head on and not let the Lesbianism go un-scrutinised in the background.
Our Leading Lady Emma Stone’s character already touched upon this in the trailer, about how she can’t have the things she loves because of her dreams but that is not telling at all.
Yes, I am aware that The Handmaiden did not touch that issue but that was different. The issue of people of the same sex not loving one another did not seem to be relevant at all but here, if the issue of Feminism is so strongly evident, then the LGBT should also be at the fore front and it has to come up as a bump in the road of Emma’s character fighting for gender equality! Can you imagine if a dick of a character that is Steven’s caught wind of that?!
But judging by the Directors and the Writer, and thinking of the fact that The Handmaiden and Moonlight, movies cherished and winning awards exist, then my hopes are high!
Ladies and gentlemen, we have another Super quality GAY movie coming our way and this almost erases all the stuff that has happened in the last 48 hours!
I can’t wait…

Thanks for this. (I just spoiled myself by reading Billie Jean King’s personal life and the plot in Wikipedia. I regret it.)

Now why would you do that? I never go to Wikipedia unless I am looking for indepth info.
And now I want to know what you found out but I shall resist. Also I doubt writers of this caliber would just take on the story line for line. There are probably going to be some changes

This wasn’t on my radar so I did the search too. Don’t worry, all is well.
