I need your help!

Vote time!!

Theoretically, which 100-word synopsis would make you see THE COMMUNE at a very prestigious film festival? Just hypothetically.

And though festival audiences normally skew errudite, do you think the word "feminist" would be off-putting?

Thank you for your opinions!!!

I like the first one.

I also agree that the word "feminist" may be counter-productive. I'm not sure how I would react to it in the context of just reading about the movie for the first time.

I know that I have no issue with gay people or movies with gay people as lead and/or supporting characters, but whenever I read that a movie is a "gay movie", I always roll my eyes and think it'll be another one of "those" gay movies that I saw and enjoyed 15 years ago, but feel done with.

I can't help wonder if it doesn't make it feel like an agenda movie rather than a thriller.
