NEW LGBT FILM PROJECT SEEKING SUPPORT!!
When was the last time you saw a dramatic gay film that didn’t have a coming-out, a pulsing night club setting, a heated courtroom debate on discrimination or a HIV/AIDs PSA embedded within it? What was the last gay film where the plot focused on the human drama between people, and not the “Gay”?
They ARE out there. We want to bring you the next great one… with Better Half.
Better Half is a story about a young DC couple’s transition from parnters to parents. Tony is the kind-hearted social worker who can’t turn a blind eye to any soul in need, much to the frustration of his practical-minded partner. Leo is a financial planner who likes his things: his loving partner, his growing small business and prefers to live quietly & simply, with as little contact with the rest of the world as possible.
So when an infant is abandoned at Saint Agnes, Tony sees it as a sign. Suddenly Leo is confronted with making good on his claim that he wants a family with Tony. Family-phobic and emotionally guarded, Leo must reconcile his fear of fatherhood with the real risk of losing Tony altogether.
