The Prom

The Prom ★★★½

i don't think I realized how much i liked this movie until it was over. it's a lot of things: overly long, shot genetically, allergic to nuance, it has songs that all sound the same, and has WAY too little Nicole Kidman.

nonetheless, i cried numerous times. it made me feel like i was in a comfortable space, a queer space that i was never confidant enough to join. i'm the only queer kid in my friend group, and i love my friends. i really do. but it just feels... like there's a wall. movies like this help me open up and feel truly "out." at least in my head.

also, hot take of the century: James Corden is good in this. really good. i am willing to die on this hill.
