New York PremiereAudience Award Winner, Outfest
Dir: Nathan Adloff, US, 2016, 90 mins
Winner of the Audience Award at Outfest, the exceedingly endearing MILES tells the story of a gay high-school senior as he dreams of leaving his small town for Chicago. Desperate to go to college far from his suburban town in Illinois and without the financial means necessary, an athletic scholarship seems like the obvious solution, but Miles’ sport of choice is volleyball, which, at his school, is strictly for girls. Featuring a deep bench of comedy vets (including Molly Shannon, Missi Pyle, and Paul Reiser), this charmingly sweet, family-friendly comedy reminds us that gender rebellion can take many forms.
