Hell’s Kitchen, 1996. Teenage best friends Claude (Alison Folland) and Ellen (Tara Subkoff) spend their days in Claude’s stuffy apartment, idly dreaming of starting a band. While Ellen explores drugs, sex, and dating bad men, an older out gay man moves into the apartment downstairs, and Claude gets a glimpse of what life could be like. As their friendship dissolves over the course of a sweaty, riot grrrl filled summer, Claude falls for a bubbly pink-haired musician (played by Leisha Hailey, nearly 10 years before becoming The L Word’s Alice). Winner of the Teddy Award at the 1997 Berlinale, All Over Me is full of an ache and longing familiar to any queer teen who has fallen for their bad-for-them best friend.
