Throughout the 1950s Tab Hunter reigned as Hollywood’s male heartthrob and his good looks and sex appeal drove his fans into screaming frenzies, but the all American boy had a secret. Tab Hunter was gay. This documentary portrait traces the star’s rise to superstardom, his secret life in a time when being openly gay was unthinkable, and his ultimate triumph when the limelight finally passed him by. David Friend of Vanity Fair says, “A savvy, rollicking, eye-popping film. Brave for its candor and enlightening for the social context it provides.”

When Elsie breaks up with her long-standing girlfriend to pursue another woman, she faces her mother’s disapproval, conflicting advice from friends, and the nagging suspicion that she may have made a big mistake. Smart, successful, and charming, Elsie is the perfect girlfriend; she’s also a serial monogamist, with a long history of broken hearts. Not another coming out story, this is a fresh coming-of-middle-age romantic comedy. Autostraddle.com says, “One of the best-written lesbian movies I’ve ever seen. It’s incisive and very, very funny.” Planetlondon.com says, “A Fresh coming-of-age-rom-com — Four Stars!” [2015, USA, Runtime: 84 minutes, Not Rated]
