Andi and Lu seem like the perfect couple. They have a great connection, they’re in love, and they’re getting married. But their bachelorette weekend doesn’t go quite as planned when, during a night of partying, Lu reveals she’s never had an orgasm. The couples’ friends, an awkward mix of party-goers, do their best to support the brides and help them overcome this speedbump. However, the guests also have secrets and issues of their own that surface throughout the weekend. As truths are revealed, each character describes their first orgasmic experience to the camera, giving the audience an opportunity to connect and identify with their stories in an intimate way. A celebration of real life and its complexities, THE FEELS is a fresh comedy about female sexuality and pleasure. Hilarious and relatable, this film will give you all sorts of good feels from beginning to end. —G.S.
