Hulu is getting into the holiday spirit this year. The streamer has just released the trailer for Happiest Season, which is directed by Clea DuVall and stars Kristen Stewart, Mackenzie Davis, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Levy, Victor Garber, and Mary Steenburgen.
This is notable as being one of the first mainstream Christmas films centered on an LGBTQ+ couple, and follows a young woman who plans to propose to her girlfriend while at her family’s holiday party but discovers that her partner is yet to come out to her conservative parents.
Meeting your girlfriend’s family for the first time can be tough. Planning to propose at her family’s annual Christmas dinner — until you realize that they don’t even know she’s gay — is even harder. When Abby (Kristen Stewart) learns that Harper (Mackenzie Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew. Happiest Season is a holiday romantic comedy that hilariously captures the range of emotions tied to wanting your family’s acceptance, being true to yourself, and trying not to ruin Christmas.
Happiest Season is set for release on Hulu on November 25th, 2020.
