Brotherly Love
Brotherly Love is the films adaptation of the Lambda Literary Award-nominated novel “Seventy Times Seven” by Salvatore Sapienza. Which “calling” do you answer?

Smitten, Phil watches his crush as he runs around the track after school, and is thrilled when Nicholas returns his feelings.

The disturbing new horror flick Possum is out this week and ready to give you the creeps

After returning to his childhood home, a disgraced children’s puppeteer is forced to confront his wicked stepfather and the secrets that have tortured his entire life. He’s also desperately trying to get rid of the creepy half-spider/half-weird-ass-mannequin-head puppet to which he seems almost supernaturally attached.

A disturbing mind-fuck of a film that aims to get deep under your skin, this directorial debut from British actor Matthew Holness (best known for creating the cult hit series Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace) keeps a deliberately slow pace, but has some bone-chilling surprises in store.

These ballroom dancers are Hot to Trot

An immersive character study, and an idiosyncratic attack on bigotry, the new documentary Hot to Trot gets up on the stage and goes behind the scenes to discover the captivating but little known world of same-sex competitive ballroom dance, a world where expressions of personal passion become a political statement, and where one false step can crush aspirations.

Away from their graceful turns on the dance floor, the characters’ backstories frame their struggles and conflicts in life. The film follows charismatic Ernesto Palma, a former meth addict from Costa Rica, who strives for success and love; gritty, determined Emily Coles, a diabetic who wears an insulin pump 24/7… even while performing; handsome Nikolai Shpakov, a dazzling dance champion, who came out only a few years ago and still longs for the full acceptance of his Russian family; and introspective Kieren Jameson, whose identity was forged in the strict, conservative environment of a New Zealand military household.
