SBG 23: Cruel Intentions

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Cruel Intentions should've been gay. After a good re-watch, they both confirmed how problematic this film is. However, what if it was gay?? From that Central Park make out scene to the possibility of Annette and Cecile riding off into the sunset at the end of the film, Cruel Intentions could have been a gay masterpiece. Ellie reimagines the film as a competition between Sebastian and Katherine for Annette's affections with Katherine winning of course. And Leigh has a far less twisted ending with the Annette and Cecile getting together in the ultimate revenge for Katherine and Sebastian messing with their lives. What better way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this movie? Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).
