Happiest Season: Release Date, Plot, Cast And More

Kristen Stewart is set to star in a lesbian romantic comedy film.

It's been almost three years since Kristen Stewart came out with her sexuality in public, and now she is set to star in another lesbian film.

Happiest Season is set to lightheartedly tackle the common issues surrounding LGBTQ+ couples, especially those who are still in the closet.

Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming romantic comedy film. 


What Is The Plot Of Happiest Season? 

Happiest Season follows a young woman (Stewart) who is planning to propose to her girlfriend (Mackenzie Davis) while at her family's annual holiday party.

Her romantic plan went downhill after she discovers that her girlfriend hasn't come out to her conservative parents yet.

Spending a holiday with your girlfriend's family and planning a proposal is nerve-wracking enough, but knowing that her family doesn't even know that you're dating? Well, that's a big disaster!

Fans shouldn't expect this to be another so-so film depicting lesbian relationships as director Clea DuVall has huge goals for the film.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight Canada, Davis revealed that the director's primary goal is to make "this movie that you'd want to watch again and again every year."

With that said, we're expecting the romantic comedy film to also center around family, relationships, and acceptance.
