Moonlight is probably the most exquisite and understated LGBT coming-of-age story to hit our screens for years. Light on plot and even sparse on dialogue, it nevertheless packs a powerful punch showing the inner turmoil of an African/American youth coming to terms with his own sexuality as he grows up in one of the tougher aggressively machismo neighborhoods of Miami.
It has been wowing audiences up and down the country …. even the NY Times has declared it ‘one of the best movies of 2106’ …… and accolades do not get much higher than that. Here on the eve of it’s screening at the Waters Edge Cinema in P.Town is queerguru’s own review filmed for P.T.V.
queerguru reviews for P.T.V. ex fashion guru Tom Ford’s sophomore movie Nocturnal Animals which is a fast paced thriller that will most definitely totally shock and delight audiences at the same time. Starring Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Shannon who will all probably get Oscar Nominations for their superb performances, as too will Brit Aaron Taylor-Johnson who is shockingly good as Ray Marcus the main thug in the story.
queerguru for P.T.V. reviews The Peregrine Theatre Ensemble’s new production of the smash hit musical THE FULLY MONTY : book by Terrence McNally, music and lyrics by David Yazbek. Directed and Choreographed by Terry Norgeot, and Musical Director Sue Keller.
The production is playing at The Provincetown Theater until August 18th 2016.
During the recent Provincetown International Film Festival #PIFF16 queerguru got to pursue three of our favorite passions all rolled into one i.e. movies, LGBT history and politics. Prior to the screening of a brand new documentary POLITICAL ANIMALS (click the link for our full review) we got to sit down to talk with Tracy Wares one of the movie’s co directors, and one of its stars Senator Carole Migden.
The Senator was one of four openly gay politicians …. all women … who rocked the very foundations of the California Legislature way back when as they successfully battled away to get our community some basic equal rights that would eventually pave the way for us to get these on a Federal Level too.
In this interview for P.T.V. filmed at the Sage Inn & Lounge in P Town by Rik Ahlberg and Heather Reed (who also edited it too) we get to talk about how this compelling story about these extraordinary pioneers came to be documented. We also got the Senator to not just reminisce about the past, but share with us her thoughts on what we still need to do as a Community too.
Political Animals doesn’t just recount this essential part of our recent history, but is also serves to act as a tribute to these four fearless women who we will always be so indebted too.
