Some gender reversal is the twist to a new short film based on Dorothy Parker’s short story “You Were Perfectly Fine.” The film was shot by Irish actor-director Karl Geary (Coney Island Baby) and stars his wife, Scottish TV star Laura Fraser (A Knight’s Tale), and English actress Miranda Nolan. No plans to release it anytime soon, but it will be a pretty hot version of this classic short piece. Fraser tells Scotland’s Daily Record:
“I play a woman who gets drunk one night and passes out. She wakes in the morning and has a postmortem on what happened. It turns out all sorts of sordid things happened, and my character becomes more scared and anxious as the story goes on. In the original story it’s between a man and a woman, but my husband wanted to change it to two women.”
Yet Laura admits she had no problem with the storyline change.
She said: “I think I’ve played about three lesbians now, so it’s not a problem.
“We filmed it with an actress friend called Miranda Nolan. It really wasn’t awkward. The only thing is, I did think we were heading for a domestic in front of everyone involved in filming.”

Nolan will next be seen as Florence Nightingale in a new BBC drama.
