With so many high-profile gay movies taking up room on our warehouse shelves (see Tom of Finland, Beach Rats, BPM (Beats Per Minute), God’s Own Country and, of course, Call Me by Your Name) – and as tomorrow is the first day of spring – we thought it prudent to do a little spring cleaning and clear some space. We just tossed a whole bunch of great gay movies onto our Clearance List! Below we’re highlighting ten special picks (with ten more to come tomorrow), but don’t stop there! Click here for a full list of eligible items!
2011, United States
Starring Murray Bartlett (a few years before he graced our TV screens on “Looking”), August tells the story of two former lovers, Troy and Jonathan, who reunite after a long ago painful breakup. After spending several years in Spain, Troy returns to Los Angeles and decides to phone Jonathan and meet for coffee. A seemingly innocent rendezvous turns into an attempt to revive passions past. Only this time it’s not that simple as Jonathan has a new beau, Raul, and is trying to make the right decision a second time around.
