Four queer friends in NYC try to protect the community they’ve created from the outside world while their lives slowly and oddly begin to parallel cult German queer novel So Schön. This nonconventional film blends drama, doc, and experimental elements to create a completely unique expereince that lives somewhere between a 1980s Godard film and queer Instagram stories.


"Jessie Jeffrey Dunn Rovinelli’s SO PRETTY stands out as... the kind of American independent film that deserves the spotlight treatment." -


"As a document of its moment in time, place and political conjuncture, SO PRETTY is already of inestimable value, but the film is also marked by assured, sensitive direction and a visual flair that at times matches the intensity of its literary inspiration." - Senses of Cinema


"Inventing the queer gaze in front of our eyes." - IndieWire
