Some were particularly happy to hear about a film which portrayed a lesbian character they related to, in a storyline which showed them as just another teenager, rather than some sort of tortured soul.

One of these fans tweeted: “Yessssss. Also, can I borrow someone’s time machine because high school me needs this movie too.”
