It begins and ends on a basketball court! She sees him, she wants him, but how will she get his attention when he doesn’t even seem to notice her? Thirsty is not your average one-sided love story. She is a mosquito (voiced by Maya Rudolph) with, we all have to admit, great taste in men (since the object of her desire is portrayed by Jay Ellis) and he is out of her gene pool, let alone her league. Writer/director Nicole Delaney embraces us in her surprisingly enthralling love story, subverting expectations by revisiting the rom-com tropes with a fresh perspective and sharp sense of humour.
