Best Film at Sundance?
Let's hope Dustin catches this one.
With a bit of an Earth Girls Are Easy (Whatever happened to Geena Davis?) vibe, Madeleine Olnek's feature debut Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same looks like it will be filled with delicious, campy cheese. The film is premiering at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and tells the story of Jane (Lisa Haas), a shy, greeting card store worker who falls in love with lesbian alien, Zoinx (Susan Ziegler) -- not realizing that Zoinx (Der, totally an alien name.) is not of her own planet. The ladies are followed and observed by a couple of Men in Black type government agents (Dennis Davis, Alex Karpovsky) and presumably, hilarity ensues. The film promises to "...embrace the intrinsic hilarity of lesbian life and DIY filmmaking to tell a story about love that transcends galaxies."
Here's the Ed Wood-ish trailer which doesn't show much content but still manages to tickle my anticipatory receptors:
"Just because they're aliens doesn't mean they can't be dates."
