Kill the Monsters
When the young, pretty and charmingly aloof Frankie (Jack Ball) falls mysteriously ill, his older and wiser partners – overthinking, practical Patrick (Ryan Lonergan), and impulsive, fiery Sutton (Garrett McKechnie) – agree that it’s time to head West, begin new adventures and seek holistic treatment. From here, the highs and lows of the trio’s journey mirror key points in United States history – from hot sex in their luxurious New York City apartment through a road trip that results in a civil war and possible breakup to an all-out poker war involving scheming, sophisticated and calculating German and Russian lesbians. Don’t miss this sexy, funny, touching and expertly-crafted black and white indie gem.
After a long stay in ex-gay conversion therapy, James (Michael Grant), a young piano prodigy, returns home to his family farm and his emotionally distant father Richard (Tom Wopat). After Richard pressures James to give up his music career and take over the farm, James agrees as a way to make up for his past. Soon, however, he finds himself face-to-face with his former lover Charlie (Josh Green), who wants to help him turn away from his new beliefs and follow his dreams. A touching, deeply romantic drama, Fair Haven is often heartbreaking, but ultimately life-affirming – and the performances, across the board, are terrific. Young up-and-comers Green and Grant make their forbidden love palpable (and very sweet).
Colm (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) is a married man in his mid-forties with two teenage children. Though he has a seemingly great life, his world is about to crack open. Still grieving the death of his father, a destructive figure in his life, Colm finds himself struggling to connect with his own family. A shake-up at work also starts threatening their financial future. Desperate for comfort, he falls into the arms of a much younger hustler named Jay (Tom Glynn-Carney) and starts down and increasingly self-destructive path. As his sexual encounters with Jay become more frequent and intense, his recklessness starts to put his entire family life at risk. Don’t miss this tense new drama from Irish director Peter Mackie Burns and writer Mark O’Halloran.
Kuba (Mateusz Banasiuk) finds his life following a pretty normal path. A professional swimmer from Warsaw, he trains in the pool by day and returns home to the bed of his pretty girlfriend Sylwia (Marta Nieradkiewicz) at night. Until, that is, he meets Michal (Bartosz Gelner) at a gallery opening. Now, instead of training, he spends his afternoons in the city with Michal, enjoying a friendship that soon turns into a passionate love affair. Emotionally torn, Kuba ends up turning his whole life upside down – with fatal consequences for all. With Floating Skyscrapers, Polish writer-director Thomasz Wasilewski tells a story of broken hearts and the discovery of sexual identity against the backdrop of socially rooted homophobia.
