Race Bechdel Test? Fail

Major LGBT Tropes: Bury Your Gays, Butch Lesbian, Cure Your Gays, Lipstick Lesbian, Masculine–Feminine Gay Couple

Synopsis (from letterboxd): Ellen and Jill who live a quiet life on a farm in rural Canada are surprised by the visit of a former tenant’s grandson.

My Thoughts: Why can't the cottagecore lesbians just live in peace? Because toxic male Paul needs to cure them, that's why, and no one's gonna stop him.

Spoiler: When March went upstairs to put on a dress for Paul while Paul sexually assaulted Jill downstairs I died a little inside.
