Pride & Prejudice, the basis for the hit new movie Fire Island, I was able to view the film with a virgin eye. While I’m sure Austen aficionados would say that nothing comes close to the original iterations on page or screen, Fire Island brings all the feels.Fire Island is an American romantic comedy film directed, written by, and starring Joel Kim Booster, as Noah, and supported in the storyline by his ex-boyfriend, best buddy Howie, played by Australian-born, Canadian-raised and now American-based, Bowen Yang.
Supported by a veritable gaggle of gays of many shapes, sizes, and colours, at the helm of supporting characters is the mumma bear, the always enthralling Margaret Cho, as Erin.FIRE ISLAND was so much fun.
