QUICK QUICK SLOW
Feature Film in development.
The year is 1992, before “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” and Jesse McAllen has just been booted out of the military and ostracized from her small Texas town for being gay. With no money to her name she moves to Austin, Texas where she meets two queer men running a gay country and western bar. There she finds chosen family and a shot at romance when she enters a gay, two-step dance competition with hopes of winning prize money to go to college.
QUICK QUICK SLOW is a queer, two-step, romantic dramedy. Think the small town, big beat energy of Footloose meets the heart, humor, and homo-centric world of The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of The Desert.
~ Loosely based on a true story.
