Sonia Sebastián, 2018, USA, 82 min
Billie is in a dead-end job that she hates, is engaged to Gayle whom she adores and is wound up tighter than a top. When she has a chemically induced epiphany, she quits her job and makes a dramatic exit, only to realize she has no job, a wedding to plan, and a fiancé who is going to be super pissed. Billie tumbles into a hapless support group of “freelancers” who are more like the island of misfit toys than a crutch. Still, they find a way to parlay their quirky skills into an actual business. But not without some hectic shenanigans by Billie as she races the clock between pulling off the achievement of her career and marrying the girl of her dreams. Spanish filmmaker Sonia Sebastián delighted us with Girl Gets Girl and brings that cred to a very talented cast and a fun story of love and the classic theme of finding the will to make your way, in spite of yourself.
