Ellie & Abbie

Ellie & Abbie (& Ellie's Dead Aunt) (Monica Zanetti, 2020) Julia Billington, Melanie Bowers, Bridie Connell, Marta Dusseldorp; dramedy; MIFF

17 year old Ellie is struggling to find the courage to ask her classmate, Abbie, to the formal. Luckily her Aunt Tara, a lesbian who died in the 1980s, has shown up as a "Fairy Godmother" to dish out advice, whether Ellie wants it or not.

Darren's World of Entertainment:
Perfectly charming and sweetly told, Ellie & Abbie (& Ellie's Dead Aunt Too) is a high school romance set within the walls of LGBTQI world. ...
It's heartwarming but slight in many ways, enjoyable but largely forgettable - it's the very definition of sweet and cute, but as a festival palate cleanser, it has a heart that's hard to deny.
