Straight girl Milo (Younger’s Molly Bernard) is content with a comfortable life of snark and social media, supported by her alterna-family of lesbian best friend and gay roommate. But as the gays in her life begin to pair off, this millennial fruit fly is cast adrift. Enter Roger, an older gay man who dreams of being a dad. When Milo offers to be his surrogate, is it an impulse born of generosity or neediness?
Director Morgan Ingari lets the audience decide in a beautifully crafted dramedy that captures in nuanced detail this post-nuclear model of the modern family and its Brooklyn home. Both Bernard as Milo and Patrick Breen (After Louie, Frameline41) as Roger shine in the lead roles, supported by a spot-on ensemble. Pop culture references, ironic drag, trivia nights, and a cameo from East Village gay bar The Phoenix all add to the authenticity.
