FROM INDIE QUEER CINEMA TO THE HOLLYWOOD MAINSTREAM, THE PINK LENS PUTS THE DEPICTION OF LGBT+ PEOPLE IN CINEMA IN THE UK UNDER THE MICROSCOPE.
TOP 10 LGBT+ THRILLERS
In what is probably Xavier Dolan's most accessible film to date, the director also stars as Tom, who travels the the funeral of his lover in the countryside. Upon learning that his family were unaware of his sexuality, Tom maintains his charade that he had a girlfriend. But as the lie starts to get out of hand, he finds himself drawn all the more into the family's archaic lifestyle and wanting to become part of it. What starts as a character piece transforms into a tightly wound thriller that sees Dolan playing with his unique hipster stylings and applying them to a genre movie.
