Oct 6 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality.

Academy Award Winner – Best Film

“…a film of rare grace – a tender, compassionate, restrained look at a life lived in the shadows.”

“…both a disarmingly, at times almost unbearably personal film and an urgent social document, a hard look at American reality and a poem written in light, music and vivid human faces.”
