REELING: The Chicago LGBTQ+ International Film Festival

Coming In

Directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner

Germany / 2014 / 104 mins / German with English subtitles


At 30, life is perfect for the gorgeous Tom Herzner, an über gay celebrity hair stylist whose posh salon is the go-to spot for all the hottest guys in Berlin. But when he plans his first hair-product line, the cosmetic company rep gets jittery: he feels that just targeting men is too restrictive. What about women? To get an idea of what “the other half” wants, Tom is forced to work incognito at a hair salon run by the sassy, gut-honest Heidi. Sparks fly when Heidi and Tom realize they have more in common than just cutting hair, but will Tom flee back to his gay enclave or will love transcend gender and sexuality? SUMMER STORM writer-director Marco Kreuzpaintner returns to Reeling with this wacky, sexy and delightfully romantic comedy.
