since it’s been almost a year since i watched it for the first time, i am reminding you all that ‘Big Eden’ might be a PERFECT movie.
it’s a gay romcom about a painter living in new york who returns to the small country town he grew up in to take care of his sick grandfather, and reunites with his charming and friendly childhood best friend who has also moved back into town, and also his painfully shy former classmate who now runs the local general store.
there is NO homophobia, NO gay characters die, and there is a HAPPY ENDING. it’s just a sweet no-pressure feel-good movie that happens to be 100% gay. many people describe it as “every single AU fanfic trope you love come to life in a single movie” and it’s true.
plus, you get to see THIS extremely tall cute man fuss around in a tiny kitchen cooking fancy food, and isn’t that what you’ve always wanted in life?
and it’s on NETFLIX!!! PLEASE WATCH BIG EDEN
