‘Fire Island’

A feelgood dramedy as two best friends hit Fire Island for their annual week-long summer vacation.

Heading out of New York for the legendary gay holiday Mecca, Noah (Joel Kim Booster – Unplugging, TV’s Loot) is determined to find love for his best friend, Howie (Bowen Yang – Isn’t It Romantic, TV’s Saturday Night Live). But with so many distractions, staying focussed on his mission is not so easy as both the sexy hunk Dex (Zane Phillips – TV’s Partner Track, Legacies) and the uptight Californian lawyer, Will (Conrad Ricamora – TV’s How to Get Away With Murder, The Resident) are more than interested in Noah himself.

Lightweight and stereotypical with lots of camp frippery and machismo, Fire Island, directed by Andrew Ahn (Spa Night, Driveways), is enjoyable queer Asian American storytelling – but instantly forgettable.
