GO FISH is a witty, smart, and sensual romantic comedy about the trials and tribulations of a circle of lesbian career women and their girlfriends. When the young and fun-loving Max (co-screenwriter Guinevere Turner, AMERICAN PSYCHO) meets the frumpy and older, but sweet and shy Ely (V.S. Brodie) for the first time, it's hardly love at first sight. But with a little help from their matchmaking friends, the two women just may live happily ever after. This raw but sweet look at modern lesbian relationships made waves at several film fests and manages to channel its limited visibly limited budget into a funny, heartfelt tale of opposites attracting.
A smart romantic comedy about a circle of lesbian career women and their girlfriends. When fun-loving Max meets sweet, shy Ely for the first time, it's hardly love at first sight. But with a little help from their matchmaking friends, the two women just may live happily ever after.
