MOVIE NIGHT: All of Us Strangers

One of the most critically acclaimed gay films of the past year. This incredibly poignant film stars Andrew Scott as Adam, a writer in his 40s living in London who finds himself exploring and re-living his childhood growing up in the 1980s, while he attempts to complete his latest project. Re-connecting with his parents as an adult and re-examining feelings such as gay shame and loss, while at the same time seeking love and connection in the here and now. Adam’s journey leads to greater self-awareness and understanding of the cost of not taking action as he pursues the things he wants from life.

With an incredible 80s soundtrack, All of Us Strangers is both uplifting and heart-breaking. And essential.
