    MICHAEL GALLAGHER / features / USA / 2018 / 87 mins
    When narcissistic, womanizing TV star Walter Campbell (Matthew Glave, GRACE AND FRANKIE; FEUD; THE WEDDING SINGER) discovers that his latest fling is pregnant, he figures he better break the news to his estranged adult daughter Nicole (Jana Winternitz, THE THINNING) in person by crashing her vacation in Big Sur. As a favor to Nic, he agrees to bring her friend Kim (Emily Bett Rickards, ARROW), along with him on the drive. When they arrive at their destination, Walter realizes he’s unknowingly invited himself to his daughter’s wedding with Kim. Surrounded by Nic’s closest gal pals, he’s a fish out of water. But that isn’t the biggest problem – he’s learned something about Kim on the trip up that might mean he has to ruin the wedding. What’s a father to do? Gallagher’s delightfully dark wedding dramedy, a Slamdance Festival favorite, offers some surprisingly insightful answers.

  11. The Happy Prince | SPECIAL PRESENTATION!

    RUPERT EVERETT / features / UK / 2017 / 105 mins
    SPECIAL PRESENTATION! The multi-talented Rupert Everett, one of filmdom’s first openly gay actors, brings his dream project to the screen – a study of the sunset years of legendary writer and wit Oscar Wilde. Hailed as a “brilliant tour de force,” we encounter Wilde at the end of the 19th century when the sophisticated dandy was the darling of London society. But his open homosexuality was his undoing and after a much publicized, notorious trial, Wilde is sent to prison. Impoverished and stricken by ill health upon his release, he goes into exile in Paris, surviving on the flamboyant irony and brilliant bon mots that defined him. After a half-hearted attempt to reconcile with his wife Constance (Emily Watson, BREAKING THE WAVES, ANGELA’S ASHES), he heads back into the arms of his young lover Lord Douglas (Colin Morgan, MERLIN; HUMANS), an emotionally disastrous decision. Supported by loyal friends, including Reggie Turner (Oscar winner Colin Firth) who try to protect him from his own excesses, Wilde reflects on his life while observing from an ironic distance with detachment and humor his reduced circumstances. Everett wrote the script, makes his directorial debut with THE HAPPY PRINCE and caps his extraordinary acting career with a deeply moving performance. “Rupert Everett is magnificent in a dream role,” THE GUARDIAN raved and so he is. Rupert Everett is scheduled to attend the screening. Scheduled to attend: Rupert Everett (director/actor/writer).

A narrator articulates their inner thoughts as they frolic in the sand and surf, but even in this golden paradise, doubts they left behind catch up to them, leading to an emotionally charged confrontation that will either result in the crumbling of their already fragile relationship, or an opportunity to once again discover the spark that united them in the first place. HE LOVES ME, frank in its depiction of sex, is an exploration of the unconventional nature of love and its ability to survive against the odds.
