FIRST GIRL I LOVED

Dir Kerem Sanga

Diva (UK) - - Culture | Film & Online Reviews -

We know what you’re think­ing. “Oh great, an­other les­bian film di­rected by a man.” But Kerem Sanga is not Ab­del­latif Kechiche, and First Girl I Loved is not Blue Is The Warm­est Colour. In­spired by his own sis­ter’s com­ing out, the film stars Dy­lan Gelula (Un­break­able Kimmy Schmidt) as Anne, who falls in love with Bri­anna Hilde­brand’s char­ac­ter, Sasha, star of the high school soft­ball team (obvs). But when Anne tells best friend Clifton about her feel­ings, he does every­thing he can to sab­o­tage this blos­som­ing ro­mance. Sanga’s film is a won­der­ful queer ro­mance ex­plor­ing com­ing out, youth sup­port and con­sent, is­sues close to many of our hearts. Avail­able to watch on de­mand from 13 March
