1985

Yen Tan; 2018; USA; 85 min.

Cory Michael Smith (Gotham) shines in this compassionate drama set in the early days of the AIDS crisis. Adrian, a closeted gay man, returns to his conservative hometown for Christmas, weighed down with secrets and trauma. Over the holidays, as Adrian reconnects with his religious parents (Virginia Madsen and Michael Chiklis), he struggles with telling them the truth about his life, a truth more vital in the wake of a new bond with his younger brother. Winner of the LA Outfest Jury Prize for Outstanding Screenplay, 1985 is a stunning work about the things often left unsaid and the ray of light that finds us in the dark.
