Synopsis:

THAILAND’S SUBMISSION FOR
BEST FOREIGN FILM TO THE 2016 ACADEMY AWARDS

DVD_Amaray_Template.qxdSuperstar Thai actor-model Toni Rakkaen headlines this striking debut feature from Korean-American writer-director Josh Kim. As the now grown Oat, he recalls his childhood experience of trying to rescue his gay older brother Ek (Thira Chutikul) from being drafted into military service. As Ek grapples with the gritty realities of life in Bangkok — working at a bar for male hustlers and sex-workers — he has also found love with his more privileged boyfriend Jai (Arthur Navarat). When the moment of truth arrives with the draft lottery these 21-year-olds must draw either a black or a red slip to possibly be conscripted into the armed forces. Who will be sent off to the service and who will get to stay home?

How To Win at Checkers (Every Time) unfolds a riveting dramatic portrayal of poverty and privilege, corruption and compromises as it conveys a bittersweet coming-of-age story.

The film also features stellar performances from Ingkarat “Ryu” Damrongsakkul as the 11 year-old Oat and Natarat Lakha “Nut” as the irrepressible trans woman Kitty who is best friends with Jai and Ek and an older sister figure to Oat.

Told with an exquisite craftsmanship from the younger brother’s point of view, this beautiful drama takes a refreshingly unadorned and impartial look at an essentially loving environment where social conditions are governed by venality, corruption and false ideals. Based on the stories from the bestselling book Sightseeing by Rattawut Lapcharoensap, the film is set in the economic fringes of Bangkok and examines the joys and challenges of growing up in contemporary Thailand.

Starring: Toni Rakkaen, Ingkarat Damrongsakkul, Thira Chutikul

DVD Wolfe Price: $19.95 Available: February 02, 2016

Synopsis:

“Breathe is a great film. It’s gorgeously shot and acted, with a very realistic story of a friendship-gone-wrong at its center.” — AfterEllen.com

A taut, nuanced story about the depths of female friendships and the dark side of teenage infatuations, Breathe, the sophomore directorial effort from Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Beginners), is an assured adaptation of the sensational French young adult novel of the same name. Charlie (Joséphine Japy) is seventeen and bored. Her estranged parents are too caught up in their own drama to pay her much attention. School holds no surprises either, and Charlie grows tired of her staid friends. Enter Sarah (Lou de Laâge), a confident and charismatic new transfer student who brings with her an alluring air of boldness and danger. The two form an instant connection, and through shared secrets, love interests and holiday getaways their relationship deepens to levels of unspoken intimacy. But with this intimacy comes jealousy and unrealistic expectations, and soon the teens find themselves on a dangerous trajectory toward an inevitable and unforeseen collapse.

The drama is a coming-of-age genre film, and centers on fictional Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine), a young gay white man from Indiana, who flees the conservative countryside in the late 1960s and moves to New York City. Before leaving, he is discovered by friends while making love with his boyfriend. His father is horrified, his mother is ambiguous as she feels for her son, but also does not want to stand up to her husband. His father then refuses to sign the scholarship application for the college in New York Danny is supposed to attend.

Danny leaves for New York anyway, leaving behind his younger sister. After reaching Greenwich Village, he is befriended by a multiracial group of young, gay and genderfluid street kids and drag queens. He meets older men Trevor (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), who soon becomes his lover and roommate, and Ed Murphy (Ron Perlman), the manager of the Mafia-owned Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in the Village. Ed colludes with corrupt policemen and exploits homeless gay youth to his own advantage.
