Sunburn
Set within the luxurious confines of a modern vacation villa in the Portuguese countryside, the stylish new thriller Sunburn examines a close-knit group friends who share a long (and slowly teased-out) history. Our four protagonists come together for a peaceful weekend retreat by the pool. Unfortunately, their calm is quickly shattered by a phone call from David, a former friend, previously ostracized by the group, who seems to have left a strong and lasting impression on each of them. After a long absence, he’s back in town and planning to stop by. It’s at this point that Sunburn starts ramping up the dread. A reckoning, of some sort, is coming. What happened between David and the rest of the group to inspire such mixed emotions?

Feral: Season One
Best friends Billy and Daniel (Jordan Nichols and Seth Daniel) live together in a Midtown Memphis bungalow. While trying to live together in harmony, pay the rent and become part of an artistic queer community, the pair find themselves dealing with difficult emotional issues – especially when it comes to finding and losing love. Created by Morgan Jon Fox, the writer-director behind the acclaimed low-budget romance Blue Citrus Hearts and the riveting doc This is What Love in Action Looks Like, the positively gorgeous gay series Feral is an absolute must-see!

Out This Week: Every Act of Life

The new documentary Every Act of Life is about four-time Tony-winning playwright Terrence McNally’s six ground-breaking decades in the theatre, hig fight for LGBTQ rights, his triumph over addiction, his pursuit of love and inspiration at every age, and the power of the arts to transform society.

The son of an alcoholic beer distributor in southern Texas, Terrence traveled the world as tutor to John Steinbeck’s children (Steinbeck’s only advice was, “Don’t write for the theater. It will break your heart”); suffered an infamous Broadway flop in 1965 at age 24; and went on to write dozens of groundbreaking plays and musicals about sexuality, homophobia, faith, the power of art, the need to connect and finding meaning in every moment of life.

With the help of his friends Sterling (Patrick Stewart) and Darius (Bryan Batt), Jeffrey decides to give love a second shot.

Released in the summer of 1995, this hilarious and touching film from acclaimed director Christopher Ashley and writer Paul Rudnick (based on his own stage play The Life and Times of Richard Jeffrey) managed to redefine the romantic comedy for the LGBTQ+ community living in the age of AIDS in the ’90s.

Dennis Cooper and Zac Farley are back with Permanent Green Light

One of the inspirations for the new film Permanent Green Light was an Australian teen who ran away from home in 2014, joined ISIS, and wound up on a suicide bombing mission where he (luckily) failed (and only managed to explode himself). That’s heavy subject matter, but we’ve come to expect nothing less from co-director Dennis Cooper.

A celebrated novelist, poet, performance artist and critic, Cooper has been delivering a wide variety intelligent, deeply affecting work for decades – usually exploring queer characters and dark themes in ways that always subvert expectations. Now he’s continuing his controversial explorations through the medium of film.

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.

This Weekend’s VOD Favorites

The Gay Cinema Video On Demand experience at TLAgay.com has your entertainment needs covered! We’re always working to expand selection of new and old gay-themed movies available for your viewing pleasure. Here’s just five of our current favorites, from various years, that you may have missed – ALL available to watch INSTANTLY! These aren’t our TOP 5, by any means – just a handful of flicks we want to highlight.

Ka Bodyscapes
2016, India
In the city of Calicut in the Indian state of Kerala, three young people grapple with entrenched structures of patriarchy – the free-spirited painter Haris (Jason Chacko), his love interest and friend, the athletic, mild-mannered Vishnu (Rajesh Kannan), and a fiery young woman, Sia (Naseera). The air is filled with protests and challenges to the rising religious and economic right wing. Ka Bodyscapes cuts out a slice of the contemporary Indian region, recreating in fiction the struggles of the young to gain space in the face of Hindu right-wing aggression and class oppression in their community. The film was originally banned in India by the Indian ratings board for “glorifying gay relationships”.

Play the Devil

Gregory (Petrice Jones) is a gifted working-class teenager from Paramin, a village located on one of the highest points of western area of the Northern Range in Trinidad and Tobago. Starring in a stage play, he soon catches the attention of James (Gareth Jenkins), an affluent businessman. The two men strike up an uncanny friendship as James takes Greg under his wing, pushing him to discover himself professionally, creatively… and intimately. Confused, Greg must at once deal with the return of his drug-addicted father, and navigate through the early days of adulthood. As Carnival Monday approaches and the locals prepare for the annual male initiation parade, Greg must confront James – an act which will prove life-changing.
