Support women directed movies this Thanksgiving with our FF pick of the week -- Great for some family time; or for a break from family, you do you!

Lez Bomb is a 2018 American comedy-drama film written by, directed by and starring one of our FF members, Jenna Laurenzo. The film follows the story of a closeted woman who brings her girlfriend home for Thanksgiving, only to have her coming-out efforts thwarted by the unexpected arrival of her male roommate.

Jenna Laurenzo, a Jersey girl born and raised, is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, where she received her BHA in Drama & English, with a focus in directing and writing. After four years in Pittsburgh, Jenna trained at Michael Howard's acting conservatory in NYC. She started creating content for the web; a handful of digital shorts and web series. Her short film Girl Night Stand went viral online, garnering well over 2 million views on Youtube, and was unexpectedly translated and subtitled in many other languages by lesbian fans from around the world (she's big in China). While touring the festival circuit with Girl Night Stand, Jenna met comedy-legend Bobby Farrelly, who saw her short, read Lez Bomb, and came on board as executive producer. Lez Bomb is Jenna's feature length directorial debut. It was shot in and around her hometown of Ramsey, New Jersey. Jenna's currently working on her next feature, and developing a number of projects for television.
