Wait, how am I talking to you right now?)Would you ask them about your romances and relationships—who to pursue and who to steer far, far away from?

Would you ask for advice in hope or finding a way to avoid mistakes or heartbreak? Would you ask to make out?Subscribe to our newsletter for your front-row seat to all things entertainment with a sprinkle of everything else queer.That’s the central hook of the delightfully titled My Old Ass, a charming, queer, coming-of-age comedy with a bit of a supernatural twist.Written and directed by Megan Park (who previously helmed 2021’s harrowing high school drama The Fallout), My Old Ass is the story of Elliott Labrant (Nashville‘s Maisy Stella), a teen living one last summer of childhood on her family’s cranberry farm before she moves away to Toronto for college, when real life is supposed to begin.In celebration of her 18th birthday, Elliott spends a night camping with her best friends Ruthie (Dance Moms‘ Maddie Ziegler) and Ro (newcomer Kerrice Brooks), when the girls decide to try mushrooms for the first time.While tripping, she appears: Elliott’s 39-year-old self, played by the acerbically witty Aubrey Plaza.Sure, there’s some initial confusion—this is a hallucination, right?—but that soon gives way to curiosity as Elliott grills herself with all sorts of questions.

The older Elliott is reticent to give too much away, though she does offer some advice, including the ominous: “Avoid anyone named Chad.”As the summer haze sets in, enjoy these compelling, funny, bittersweet summer coming-of-age movies.Well, the next day, the mushroom trip is over and older Elliott is gone.

But when our teen heroine returns home, who turns up but a young, gangly guy named Chad (Wednesday‘s Percy Hynes White), there to work on the farm for the rest of the summer.Surely there’s nothing to worry about, right?
