Happiest Season is an LGBTQ Christmas rom-com that follows Abby stars (Kristen Stewart), who is so excited to meet her girlfriend (Mackenzie Davis ) Harper’s family over the holidays and propose. However, Abby soon learns that Harper hasn’t come out to her family yet.
The first LGBTQ+-focused holiday rom-com (which was backed by a major studio) was directed by Clea DuVall and written by her and her writing partner Mary Holland. The movie co-stars Holland, Dan Levy, Victor Garber, Mary Steenburgen, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and Ana Gasteyer.
It’s a full-on same-sex romantic comedy with all of the holiday fixings. And it also features a soundtrack featuring all LGBTQ+ musicians.
Hulu bought Happiest Season from Sony in late October amid the continued shuttering of movie theaters. Now, audiences everywhere can watch the romance unfold over Thanksgiving week when it drops on Nov. 25.
