Synopsis:

A true story about a love affair ending in a shocking murder/suicide. Joe Orton was a winner of several awards for his plays “Loot” and “Entertaining Mr Sloane”. He was also an extremely promiscuous homosexual at a time when that was enough to get a man imprisoned. This film charts Orton’s life in a series of flashbacks.

In his research on the celebrated playwright Joe Orton (Gary Oldman, The Dark Knight), biographer John Lahr’s (Wallace Shawn, The Princess Bride) meetings with Orton’s literary agent, Peggy Ramsay (Vanessa Redgrave, Howard’s End) frame the story of the life of an artist. Told through flashbacks, the film reveals the relationship between Orton and his mentor (and subsequently, his lover) Kenneth Halliwell (Alfred Molina, The Da Vinci Code).

At first blush the older Halliwell was the educator and Orton his willing student. Those roles were reversed with Orton thrust into the spotlight when his play, Entertaining Mr. Sloan, became a monstrous success. Orton’s sudden fame and career trajectory placed Halliwell in his shadow, resulting in tragic consequences.

The talents of Redgrave, Oldman and Molina are a virtual master class on screen acting. Guiding them through their paces via a wonderful screenplay by Alan Bennett (The History Boys), based on the book by John Lahr, director Stephen Frears (The Queen) weaves a compelling, caustic, often humorous and never less than entertaining tale of fleeting fame.

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.

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.

DVD Wolfe Price: $19.95 Available: August 11, 2015

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.
