Out This Week: Stone Fruit
Stone Fruit follows a gay couple (played by Matt Palazzolo and Rob Warner) who have decided to call their marriage quits and get a divorce.
What better way is there for two former lovers to celebrate such a momentous, life-changing occasion than to head off to the Central Coast of California together for wine, sun, a threesome… and more wine? The pair wish to remain friends and this seems like a good way to do it. Enter Byron (Thomas Hobson), their close friend, and the trip soon becomes the post-divorce party to end all (admittedly rare) post-divorce parties.
This witty, sexy and sharply-written “anti-romantic comedy” gives freshness to the classic break-up movie by bringing in a queer perspective and explores the complicated similarities that many couples, both queer and straight, face throughout their love stories.
Stone Fruit also explores, with great charm and humor, the recent advent of same-sex divorce and provides a quiet nuanced exploration of the dynamics of interracial relationships and the distinct issues facing a generation of gay men post-AIDS, post-marriage equality and post-recession.
