Synopsis:

“A front runner for best American film of the year.” – Eric Hymes, Village Voice

From writer-director Ira Sachs (The Delta), this tremendously moving drama chronicles the emotionally and sexually charged journey of Erik and Paul, two gay men whose connection evolves from fling to relationship in the late 1990s in New York City.

Keep the Lights On chronicles an emotionally and sexually charged journey of two men in New York City through love, friendship, and addiction. Documentary filmmaker Erik (Thure Lindhardt) and closeted lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth, Damages) meet through a casual encounter, but soon find a deeper connection and become a couple. Individually and together, they are risk takers—compulsive, and fueled by drugs and sex. In an almost decade-long relationship defined by highs, lows, and dysfunctional patterns, Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries and dignity while being true to himself. Director Ira Sachs’s fearlessly personal screenplay is anchored by Lindhardt, who embodies Erik’s isolation and vulnerability with a gentle presence. Harrowing and romantic, visceral and layered, Keep the Lights On is a film that looks at love and all of its manifestations, taking it to dark depths and bringing it back to a place of grace.

Synopsis:

“The sweetest gay film” — Travels of Adam

In this intimate coming-of-age drama 18-year-old Martin (Mateus Almada) brings his old friend Tomaz (Mauricio Jose Barcellos) on a drive to the Southern Brazilian coast. Having been good friends for years, Martin and Tomaz now find themselves on the cusp of adulthood.

For both of boys, the brief excursion to the coastal town becomes a journey into themselves. It’s not just the sea that nearly reaches the doors of the country house which exerts a slow, yet relentless pull on them – the two friends have the same effect on one other.

Filipe Matzembacher and Marcio Reolon’s richly atmospheric, autobiographically inspired feature debut follows its two main characters on a weekend that will change their relationship forever. Seashore wanders through the borderlands between love and friendship, exploring sexual orientation and personal identity.

The outstanding camerawork picks up on the protagonists’ complex emotional states in the same way as the soundtrack captures the roaring of the sea: gentle and powerful in equal measure. Always on an equal footing with the subject and the characters, the film creates a moment of magic and tenderness. Looking for love and finding it are sometimes one and the same thing.

DVD Wolfe Price: $24.95 Available: December 31, 2015
BLURAY Wolfe Price: $29.95 Available: December 31, 2015

Synopsis:

HBO has notified us that Looking: The Complete Second Season has been delayed due to manufacturing issues. While we do not have an exact new street date, we expect it will be in the next few months. As soon as it arrives, we will ship orders immediately – Thanks for your understanding and patience.

In the second season, Looking continues to offer up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends – Patrick, Agustín and Dom – living, and loving, in modern-day San Francisco. Patrick (Jonathan Groff) finds himself getting what he thinks he wants only to realize it’s not actually what he needs. He and his boss Kevin (Russell Tovey), begin a messy affair, while Patrick also tries to figure out if he and Richie (Raúl Castillo) can still be friends. Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez), floundering after his breakup at the end of last season, decides to leave his art aspirations behind while striking up a friendship with a charming “bear” named Eddie (guest star Daniel Franzese). Dom (Murray Bartlett) continues his dream to open a restaurant, but faces many ups and downs in securing financing – and in his relationship with Lynn (guest star Scott Bakula).

With naturalism and humor, Looking continues to explore the search for happiness and intimacy in an age of unparalleled choices – and rights – for gay men, with the progressive, sexually open culture of San Francisco serving as a backdrop for the trio’s lives.

Starring Jonathan Groff (The Normal Heart, Frozen), Frankie J. Alvarez (Smash), and Murray Bartlett (August) and returning as series regulars are Lauren Weedman (Date Night), and Russell Tovey (The History Boys).

Guest stars include Daniel Franzese (Mean Girls) and Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap)

Synopsis:

Patrick Stewart gives a captivating performance in this witty, emotionally gripping adaptation of director Stephen Belber’s own Tony Award-nominated play.

Stewart stars as Tobi, an eccentric, pot-smoking Manhattan ballet instructor whose quiet life is interrupted by the arrival of a young couple (Carla Gugino & Matthew Lillard) from Seattle, presumably there to interview him about his colorful life as a dancer in the 1960s. As Tobi spins salacious tales from his former career, an ulterior motive for the couple’s visit emerges, forcing the trio to confront a secret that may connect them all.

Driven by Stewart’s tour-de-force performance, MATCH moves masterfully between razor-sharp comic banter and heartrending poignancy.
