Tweet-length film synopses

Working as a copywriter for a film-streaming company means I have to watch a lot of films. There are worse jobs.

Here are Tweet-length (140 character) synopses for six I’ve watched in the past week…

Two lesbian mums raise their son and daughter in a happy home. But then the kids contact their sperm-donor-dad and everything turns to shit.
