Entertainment Weekly: “Joel and I felt very committed to casting queer actors for this. We know that the depth of talent exists within this community, and I think it’s really unfortunate that much of Hollywood still has this idea that you can’t do this — like, that there are straight actors who might play these roles better.

And it’s her funniest work, by far.”Booster said, “It was like I was doing drag when I first wrote the movie about love, and then after experiencing it and doing the rewrites, it felt much more real and lived in.”Not in the US?
