Movie Info

Queerness on television has moved from subtext, in series such as "Xena: Warrior Princess", to all- out multi season relationships between women, as seen on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Lost Girl", and "Carmilla". But things still aren't perfect. In 2016, a record number of queer women died on fictional shows, which broke the hearts of queer fans and launched a successful fight for better, more diverse LGTBQ2S+ representation. Stars such as Ilene Chaiken, Stephanie Beatriz, Lucy Lawless and Angelica Ross join with the voices of numerous kickass fangirls in this fast-paced history of queer women's representation of contemporary television. QUEERING THE SCRIPT not only charts the evolution of queerness, but also demonstrates the extraordinary impact of activism on its many diverse fans, ensuring that they see themselves accurately portrayed on screen.

Critic Reviews for Queering The Script

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (7)

  • The film makes a convincing case for why it is powerful when underrepresented audiences see fictional characters that both entertain and inspire.

  • Queering the Script ultimately bites off a little more than it can chew. The flow is disorientating, jumping between shows, themes and eras. Just when one theme gets interesting it's interrupted with a completely different one.

  • A powerful reminder of the great strides that have been made, but also of the great work that still needs to be done.

    Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The documentary has many weaknesses, but its strong nostalgic appeal and the more factual segments balance it out.

    Aug 2, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • Queering the Script is an enlightening documentary that shines a much needed spotlight on queer representation.

    Jul 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [Queering The Script is] an affecting look at geekdom and the way that affection for fictional characters can bring people together and help them to assert themselves in the wider world.
