Joel Kim Booster and Bowen Yang (SNL) star in this hilarious queer rom-com, inspired by Pride and Prejudice, in which a group of friends go on a debauched summer holiday.
Directed by Andrew Ahn (Spa Night, SFF 2016), Fire Island begins with a close-knit group heading to the iconic queer destination, the Pines. Among them are best friends Noah (Kim Booster) and Howie (Yang). Noah is confident, charming and expert in casual flings. Howie is shy and has given up on ever being in a relationship. Noah foolishly commits to abstinence on the island until Howie gets laid, but temptation is everywhere. Adding drama to the proceedings, the group’s godmother and host of the annual holiday, Erin (Margaret Cho) is in danger of losing her home – potentially making this a last hurrah. So, all there is to do is break out the cheap rosé, party with abandon and hope true love is just around the corner.

Celebrate the film with an event at The Hub! Join us at the after-screening party Fire Island: All Pride, No Prejudice, Thursday 9 June at 10pm.
Director Andrew Ahn has crafted a crowdpleaser that honours the romance of Jane Austen’s novel, boosted by some very likeable performances.
Tim Grierson, Screendaily.com
By setting his unapologetically queer take on the eponymous gay enclave, [Ahn] gives audiences who’ve never been there a taste of a place where LGBT folks aren’t at the mercy of the majority; they are the majority.
Peter Debruge, Variety
Ahn’s light-touch direction, the appealing cast and the frisky humour and stealth soulfulness of Kim Booster’s script keep it breezy and captivating.
