Fire Island is a brand new film from Searchlight Pictures coming out on June 3rd on Hulu. I had the pleasure of chatting with the director of the film Andrew Ahn and one of the stars of the film Torian Miller.
Fire Island centers around two best friends (Joel Kim Booster and Bowen Yang) who set out to have a legendary summer adventure with the help of cheap rosé and their cadre of eclectic friends.
Excerpt from my review: Joel Kim Booster, who wrote the film (also stars), delightfully lays out this funny, charming rom-com that has so much heart in it. I criticize many movies because they either force the comedy or force the drama but never are good enough to put the two together. What impressed me the most about the script was Booster’s ability to brilliantly blend the drama and comedy.
I had the pleasure of sitting down to talk to direct Andrew Ahn and star Torian Miller about what attracted them to the project, what it was like shooting on location and much more.
Don’t forget to check out Fire Island on Hulu on June 3rd.
