Leigh and Ellie dive into The Favourite for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. The Favourite is a 2018 film about two women, Abigail (Emma Stone) and Lady Sarah Malborough (Rachel Weisz) fighting for the affections of Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman). Also starring Rachel Weisz' boobs, her jaunty pirate outfit, Emma Stone falling down a bunch and 17 rabbits. We talk about petty lesbians, rubbing legs and why we should eat the rich. Lez-ssentials comes complete with a Favourite drinking game because every lesbian movie should be accompanied by heavy drinking. This episode also comes with an original Lez-ssentials song based off of the movie titled "Number One."

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).
