The Mattachine Family
2023, 99 minutes, Dir: Andy Vallentine, USA
Thomas (Nico Tortorella) and Oscar (Juan Pablo di Pace) have spent a year as foster parents to a wonderful child, a calling that’s shown them new dimensions of what “family” can mean. However, when the young boy is reunited with his birth mother, the couple’s differing views on what the experience meant comes into focus. As Oscar’s career as an actor picks up and sends him out-of-state for months, a bewildered Thomas embarks on a journey to figure out what he wants from life and what it means to be gay. Featuring an all-star supporting cast that includes Emily Hampshire, Carl Clemons-Hopkins, Heather Matarazzo, Jake Choi, Garrett Clayton and Cloie Wyatt Taylor.
