OutCinema Opening Night Film & Party

Dir. Rhys Ernst, USA, 2019, 95 mins

OutCinema Opening Night Film & Party All tickets include screening, Q&A and open bar afterparty

New York Premiere Hot off its World Premiere at Sundance Film Festival, this highly anticipated comedy from Emmy-nominated director Rhys Ernst (TRANSPARENT) and the Oscar-nominated producers of SHORTBUS and BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN is a new queer classic in the making. It’s 2006 and awkward high schooler Adam decides to spend the summer in New York City with his cool older sister, who is highly engaged in the queer activist scene. And even though school is out, Adam receives an edifying crash course on friendship, romance, and community through a distinctly queer lens in this crowd-pleasing coming-of-age tale. Featuring an exciting fresh ensemble including Nicholas Alexander, Margaret Qualley, Leo Sheng, Bobbi Salvör Menuez, Chloë Levine, and MJ Rodriguez (FX’s POSE).

Q&A with director Rhys Ernst and select cast
