A modern retelling of Pride & Prejudice at the height of gay summer vacation? This 2022 romantic comedy features writer/lead Joel Kim Booster, Bowen Yang, Margaret Cho and was directed by Andrew Ahn. Come see how Jane Austen’s tale of love still has relevance when recast in the overlapping identities of our queer, multi-racial cast.

Featuring after-screening discussion, guests TBD. Rated R. Runtime 1h 45m.
This film is presented in partnership with Jane Austen & Co, the Asian American Center, and the LGBTQ Center.
