The rare slice-of-life film to center the experiences of a Black butch lesbian, the debut feature from Campbell X focuses on JJ (T’Nia Miller), a lesbian stud, and her white gay “pretty boy” best friend, Seb (Kyle Treslove), who work together as wedding photographers while navigating the ups and downs of potential relationships. Steeped in the energy and cultural diversity of its East London setting, STUD LIFE puts a brash and bracingly contemporary spin on the romantic-comedy formula.
