A self-proclaimed "ex-lesbian," Jill hunts down her ex-girlfriend Jamie to prove toherself that she is no longer attracted to her. A satire about sexuality where nothing is as
it seems, Heterosexual Jill is a pseudo-romantic comedy about being in love with who you think you are.
Heterosexual Jill rides the edge of laughter and pain, desire and repression, and explores the complicated attachment to one’s sense of self in the face of love
Unable to make progress with her ex-lesbian conversion path, the neurotic “All American” Jill tracks down her butch ex-girlfriend Jamie to prove to herself that she is no longer attracted to her.
Strung along by guilt and desire, Jamie agrees to the preposterous plan of “dating” Jill so that Jill can close this chapter of her life and move forward with men.
Meanwhile, David and Lola compete for the affections of José, a sexually ambiguous and seductive man from Brazil, and they compare notes on their differing opinions of his sexuality.
As complications arise with Jill and Jamie’s relationship, Jill starts to see José as her ticket out.
However, when the love triangles shift and realign, Jamie has her own identity crisis that she is ill-equipped to handle. A mix of over-the-top comedy, sharp wit, and pathos, Heterosexual Jill rides the edge of laughter and pain, desire and repression, and explores the complicated attachment to one’s sense of self in the face of love.
This entertaining film asks some serious questions about gender, sexuality and identity but never seems preachy or overly didactic.
