Synopsis:

Straight Paige and lesbian Sasha are codependent best friends in their late 20s who have spent the last ten years acting more like wives than friends: they talk to each other on the toilet; they drive each other to the doctor. And as with any good marriage, they’re a perfect yin and yang. Until the night Paige meets Tim. Despite some superficial drawbacks (questionable facial hair, a penchant for quoting the movies everyone quotes), he’s the kind of guy you marry.

As Paige and Tim’s relationship grows, the bond between Paige and Sasha inevitably shifts. Suddenly without a “partner,” Sasha is left to examine her own shortcomings and panic about her impending 30th birthday. Passive-aggressive conflict brews in their friendship until the girls must finally confront the question they’ve been avoiding: can their friendship survive growing up?

Starring: Abby Elliott, Adam Brody, Gabourey Sidibe, Gillian Jacobs, Leighton Meester, Mark Feuerstein

Petra Clever

“My favorite LGBT film is: Oh, that’s difficult, there are so many great films. I think When Night is Falling was a very special experience for me. They showed it in a really big cinema in Cologne — at a time when most LGBT films you had to hunt for on VHS under the counter! I was fascinated by the mind-blowing pictures and the playfulness of Patricia Rozema telling this story, and by the strength of the characters. Also I worshiped the way Jamie Babbitt took on LGBT issues in But I’m a Cheerleader. The film is so well observed and so funny, all wrapped in this bon bon world — and the true emotions are pointed out in such a tender way.”
