April's Shower is a 2003 romantic comedy written and directed by Trish Doolan. The story revolves around two women with lesbian tendencies, April (Maria Cina) and Alex (Trish Doolan). They were a couple for a long time, but Alex has found a man that she is willing to marry and decides to move on to a normal family life. April, her Maid of Honor, organizes a wedding shower for Alex inviting all kinds of people from the entire sexual orientation and social spectrum. Although April is eager to accomplish her task to the best of her ability, she still seems uncomfortable enough with the idea that Alex will marry. It is unclear whether it is because she believes Pauly (Randall Batinkoff), Alex's future husband, is a dull and shallow man, or because of the love and desire for her former girlfriend. For the sake of their friendship, April pretends to enjoy the event at first, but she can't resist to reveal her true feelings towards the end of the party. The film has won the 2003 Audience Award for Best Feature - Lesbian.moreless

    The movie suffers from a malady common to tiny indies of the let's-put-on-a-show variety -- it strains for irrepressibly nutty, but lands squarely in annoying.
