Four worldly women put their gaydar to the test in this over-the-top comedy from Thailand.

Pang (Meesuke Jangmeesuke) is an attractive but slightly naive woman who lives in Bangkok and regularly lunches with her four best friends — Pom (Patcharasri Benjamas), a brash and man-hungry fashion journalist; Fai (Pimonwan Suphayang), a hair stylist with passion for bargains; Pat (Kulnadda Pajchimsawat), a press agent with a boyfriend quite a bit older than herself; and Nim (Ornpriya Hunsat), who sells aphrodisiac medicines over the phone. One day Pang announces with great excitement that she’s engaged to be married, and her friends are eager to meet her future husband, but when they’re introduced to Kong (Thienchai Jayavasti), her smart-suited, impeccably-styled and well-mannered fiance, they all come to the same conclusion — he must be gay. Determined to prevent Pang from having her heart broken, the gals set out to dig up the truth about Kong with the help of Brother Bee (Michael Shaowannasi), an airline steward who makes no secret of his alternative lifestyle. But it doesn’t take long for Pang’s pals to discover proving Kong is gay is hardly as easy as they imagined.

METROSEXUAL was directed by Yongyoot Thongkongtoon, who previously enjoyed great success in Thailand with the broad comedy THE IRON LADIES.
