A 'radical' rom-com: How 'Happiest Season' is both familiar and brand new

The latest holiday rom-com, "Happiest Season," includes many tropes of the genre but the premise is a breath of fresh air. Abby (Kristen Stewart) and Harper (Mackenzie Davis) are a lesbian couple visiting Harper's family for the first time. The only catch is that Harper hasn't yet told them she's gay. The cast of "Happiest Season" spoke to Yahoo Entertainment about how they successfully subverted a genre known for hewing to a traditional formula. "There are a lot of funny, weird things that happen between girls and guys when they go home together for Christmas," Steward said of the typical hijinks that accompany a standard rom-com. "But different things happen with two girls ... and those jokes are just new to us. Like we haven't told them yet."
