I want to be known on here for my lists of movies where specific actresses are Not Straight.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
If the straights can have bad Christmas movies, we can too.
(i wish that she had said "i'm a lesbian" instead of "i'm gay" after her sister outed her by calling her a lesbian in that tone of voice. would have loved to hear someone say the word without bitterness or disgust just once in this movie.)
Otherwise, tho, I think everyone should see this! I wish this movie had existed for me when I was younger.
Happy holidays to…
I befriended the au pair next door, who is from Germany, and made her watch this with me so she could tell me when the subtitles were inaccurate. 10/10 would recommend getting a German perspective on this German movie.
Also, I say this every time I watch this movie, but... I love Ilse so much. She's my fave.
