OUT on DVD/VOD: Handsome Devil

HANDSOME DEVIL follows Ned, the bullied outsider, and Conor, the new boy and star athlete, who are forced to room together at their boarding school. The boys take an instant dislike to each other, and seem destined to remain enemies until an English teacher, Mr. Sherry, begins to drill into them the value of finding one's own voice. This lesson, however, isn't appreciated by everyone, particularly rugby coach Pascal, who has his own agenda and harbors some deep suspicions about the boys' teacher.

Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired North American rights to John Butler’s jaunty, entertaining comedy/drama HANDSOME DEVIL starring Andrew Scott (Sherlock, SPECTRE). Breaking Glass acquired the North American rights to the film in March in a deal negotiated between Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff and Peter Van Steemberg of ICM Partners. Breaking Glass is planning a limited theatrical in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, and other select cities on June 2; the film streets on DVD and all major North American TVOD platforms June 6, 2017.

OUT in Theaters: Do You Take This Man

Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired North American rights to Joshua Tunick’s heartfelt, socially-relevant drama Do You Take This Man starring Anthony Rapp (Star Trek: Discovery, RENT, BWOY) and is planning a July limited theatrical followed by a VOD/DVD release.

Along with Rapp, Do You Take This Man also stars Jonathan Bennett (MEAN GIRLS), Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, AMERICAN WEDDING), Thomas Dekker (MY SISTER’S KEEPER, KABOOM!), and Mackenzie Astin (The Magicians). 

The movie focuses on an intimate group of friends and family as they gather at the home of two gay men (Anthony Rapp and Jonathan Bennett) to celebrate their nuptials. When the wedding hits a snag, this group helps the grooms to see that all marriages have their challenges, and love is just the beginning. 

“The Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality came down on the last day of filming “Do You Take This Man”, said Producer Eric Kops. “With the recent shift in the political climate, the story is as timely as ever.”

“Writer/ Director Joshua Tunick has crafted a beautiful, heartfelt romantic drama about the challenges surrounding the concept and commitment of marriage”, said Richard Ross, Co-President of Breaking Glass. “Anthony Rapp leads a talented cast in a film that will resonate with everyone who’s ever been in love.”

OUT on DVD/VOD: Akron

Akron from Wolfe Video on Vimeo.

AKRON offers a gay coming-of-age tale with a refreshing twist-none of its characters are in search of self- or familial acceptance, because they've all already achieved it. Set against the backdrop of midwest Ohio suburbia, where familial cohesion and domestic stability are cultural commodities, the film instead explores the damage that can be done by other kinds of buried secrets, and the resilience and forgiveness it takes to heal that damage.

A sensitive and nuanced film that puts a progressive, Midwestern spin on a classic family drama: Benny and Christopher, college freshmen, meet playing football and begin a relationship. They fall in love supported by their family and friends. As their love for each other grows, a past tragic connection involving their mothers comes to light, and this revelation tests their own love and Benny's close-knit family.

OUT on DVD/VOD: 50 Years With Peter, Paul and Mary


50 Years With Peter, Paul and Mary is a new documentary by four-time Emmy Award-winning producer/ director Jim Brown that focuses on portions of the trio's career not included in previously aired PBS specials. This program features rare and previously unseen television footage including a BBC program from the early 1960s that embodies many of the trio's best performances and most popular songs. This is Peter Paul and Mary at the peak of their artistry, a time when this popular and influential trio dominated the Billboard music charts.

From the group's emergence in Greenwich Village, to the Civil Rights and Anti-War era of the 1960s, through the decades of their later advocacy and music, to Mary Travers' moving memorial, and finally to the present, where their legacy continues to inform and inspire successive generations, this far deeper and more intimate exploration of the trio reveals the impact of their artistry and activism on their generation and the world.

50 Years With Peter Paul and Mary will be available on DVD and select video on-demand platforms on December 9th.

OUT on DVD/VOD: Esteros

In Esteros, Matías and Jerónimo—played by Ignacio Rogers and Estaban Masturini, who have a potent on-screen chemistry—have known each other since childhood. During the holidays in the Argentine wetlands of Esteros and before they begin high school, their friendship takes a new turn when they both experience their sexual awakening. However, Matías’ father forces them apart when he takes a job far away. Ultimately, distance and family contempt for homosexuality leads Matías to deny his friend, and ultimately, himself.

More than ten years later, Matías returns to his old town for Carnival with his girlfriend, where he unexpectedly runs into Jerónimo. Feelings between the two men slowly reappear, leading to a long-repressed awakening. But at what cost? Esteros is an expansion and reworking of the director’s 2015 short film Matías y Jerónimo in which two young boys are witness to a hate crime. Curotto’s debut feature is a charming and heartfelt take on second chances at love.

Esteros opens at the Arena Cinema in Los Angeles on Friday, November 18, followed by a VOD release on Tuesday, November 29, where it will be available on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu and On Demand through local cable and satellite providers.
