Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same
Director: Madeleine Olnek, 2011.
United States, 76 minutes.
Following the adventures, misadventures and experiences of three aliens from the planet Zots, sent down to Earth on a mission to rid themselves of romantic emotions, which are considered toxic to their planet’s atmosphere, they are told to have their hearts broken on Earth, where such heartbreak is considered a given. One, Zoinx, falls in love with Jane, a mild-mannered lesbian working in a stationary store. Looking past her bald head and monotone speech, Jane is unaware that the object of her affection is an alien and falls hard for Zoinx. Between dodging government men in black, and the suspicion on her compatriots, Zoinx is learning about life and love on Earth in this gay send-up to Ed Wood's sci-fi classics.
