Program 10: Good KisserDirected by Wendy Jo Carlton
- Narrative Feature, October 12
- 75 mins
- NEW YORK STATE premiere
In Good Kisser, writer/director Wendy Jo Carlton (Hannah Free, Jamie & Jessie Are Not Together) takes us on an exploration of the hazy lines of modern dating in a refreshing way we haven’t really seen before.
Jenna (Kari Alison Hodge – Crazy Bitches, the Web Series) and Kate (Rachel Paulson, East Siders — and Sarah Paulson’s little sister!) have been together for almost two years when they decide that maybe spicing up their relationship is in order. At Kate’s urging, they decide to try out having a date with a third woman. Jenna is shy and nervous going in, not at all sure of herself, but the second she lays eyes on Mia (Julie Eringer, Fox Trap), she starts to think maybe this isn’t such a bad idea after all.
As the evening progresses, alcohol is consumed, music is danced to, stories are shared, and though something seems slightly off, Jenna can’t put her finger on it. Until she stumbles across a secret that changes everything.
Take a little comedy and a little drama, add it to some romance, toss in a nice helping of sexy. Mix it all together and you’ve got Good Kisser—not your average lesbian romance that will change the way you look at popsicles forever.
