In the latest release from Searchlight Pictures, they offer audiences a look at frivolity, friendship, and Fire Island so it is no surprise that FlickDirect’s Austin Putnam had a great conversation with the film’s Director Andrew? and one of its stars, Tomas? about shooting on the Island, the messages woven throughout the film, and how Tomas got cast in the role of Keegan.


Set in the iconic Pines, Andrew Ahn’s FIRE ISLAND is an unapologetic, modern-day rom-com showcasing a diverse, multicultural examination of queerness and romance. Inspired by the timeless pursuits from Jane Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice, the story centers around two best friends (Joel Kim Booster and Bowen Yang) who set out to have a legendary summer adventure with the help of cheap rosé and their cadre of eclectic friends.
