Color Me Like One of Your Bisexual Boys


Finally some news on one of my favorite films of the year -- not just one news either, but two! Two news! A two-fer! Amanda Kramer's greaser-fantasia Please Baby Please starring Harry Melling, Andrea Riseborough, and our boy "the irresistible" Karl Glusman...

... has a trailer and a release date! That's the first news. It's two things, but one news. The trailer I'll share down below -- the release date is October 28th. I reviewed this movie when it screened at Fantasia earlier this summer -- read my thoughts here. Obviously I adored it.

How could I not? It's made up of all of my favorite things -- hot boys, homosexual tension, Andrea Riseborough screaming, really tight jeans, Cole Escola singing in a phone booth covered in flowers, cold-blooded murder, bisexual lighting. What else do you even need?

The second bit of news about this movie is if you're in NYC you can see it sooner than the end of October, because it's screening at NewFest! Our big queer movie-thon announced their full line-up today, check it out on their website. Besides this stone-cold immediate classic they're screening My Policeman (the "Harry Styles is a married gay cop" movie) and the solid gay horror Swallowed (my review) and the upcoming animation Wendell & Wild from director Henry Selick and...

... a heap more. Check it out on their site. NewFest runs from October 13th through 25th and if you're in NYC it's a must every damn year. I have never had a bad time at NewFest! I mean I once stood right next to Chris Evans at NewFest, for god's sake. Can't go wrong with that. Here is that Please Baby Please trailer: 



Tell me that don't look like everything?
Absolutely everything, baby.

I saw this recently at a film festival and couldn't get into it. Harry Melling was amazing (that scene on the phone!) and Cole Escola stole his scenes, but I found Riseborough heavily overacting. As for the style, I think it could've gone further, making it more of a B movie.

Every time I see Cole, I think "Let Dory go"
