BFI Flare London LGBTQIA+ Film Festival


From: March 14th 2024
to: March 15th 2024

An aging father’s birthday party gathers the grown-up children back into the fold. But many of us in the LGBTQIA+ community will be familiar with the particular sense of dread that can come with such occasions. In Canadian Elliot Page’s first major film role since coming out as trans in 2020, we feel his character armouring himself on the train to the suburbs. Although warmly welcomed, misgendering and misunderstandings are only a breath away. In town, he runs into Katherine, the closest of his friends when he was growing up, with whom he had lost touch. By UK director Dominic Savage.
