I have a friend who always jokes that when a bunch of lesbians, get together, watch out because inevitably there will be (unnecessary) drama. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but I couldn;t help but have that on my mind as I was watching ‘The Feels,’ which centers around a group of mostly lesbians getting together to celebrate the wedding of Andi (Constance Wu) and Lu (Angela Trimbur)
You can guess what happens next – friendships shift, revelations abound – but there’s also one big revelation – Lu has never had an orgasm. Of course, this gets talked about incessantly in the film. I kept on thinking that if these were a group of gay men, they would make sure the guy gets laid. Mars Venus etc.
But the film is pleasant enough, if unmemorable, and it might even be the last chance to catch Wu before her star-making performance in ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’
