Sapphic Cinema: Allison Williams and Logan Browning Chat with AfterEllen About ‘The Perfection’


Yes, THE PERFECTION has a lesbian storyline. And on Netflix in 2019, that’s no big deal.

AfterEllen sat down with actresses Allison Williams and Logan Browning, stars of new Netflix thriller The Perfection, in Hollywood this week. Watch what they had to say about the lesbian plotline, which they say is no big deal and shouldn’t be. We LOVE that, and we hope to see more big-budget mainstream movies normalizing the lesbian experience in the future. The women also talk about how cool it was to get to work together and the diversity of storylines Netflix includes in their lineup.

We also had the opportunity to speak with director Richard Shepard and he shared his thoughts about making the film, and why it’s so great that the lesbian angle was simply a natural part of the story. Check it out! And if you haven’t yet seen this Sapphic, suspense-filled horror/dramedy, then you are in for a RIDE.


The most buzzed-about movie at last year’s Fantastic Fest, THE PERFECTION is an elegant and terrifying suspense ride filled with unexpected twists and turns. When troubled musical prodigy Charlotte (Allison Williams) seeks out Elizabeth (Logan Browning), the new star pupil of her former school, the encounter sends both musicians down a sinister path with shocking consequences.

Overflowing with dizzying horror and sly dark humor, THE PERFECTION is directed by Richard Shepard (THE MATADOR, DOM HEMINGWAY, “Girls”), and written by Eric C. Charmelo, Nicole Snyder and Richard Shepard.
