East Side Story Review


Very Good
East Side Story isn't another one of those gay dramedies set in West L.A. It's a gay dramedy set in East L.A., with all of the usual gay ensemble film suspects on hand, albeit in a slightly unusual locale.

Reuniting with their former teenage clique in Ojai, California, the half dozen 1981 graduates focused on by writer Kimberly Shane O'Hara and director Lief Tilden are seen largely though the eyes of Jeanie (Jennifer Rubin), an outsider that none of the film's group of friends recognizes from their teens.
