Two gay-themed feature films are set to premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

The jailhouse romance film I Love You Phillip Morris stars Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor as a pair of star-crossed lovers who meet in a Texas jail cell.

The script is based on the book of the same name by journalist Steve McVickers. The book follows the true story of Steven Russell (played by Jim Carrey, Liar Liar) and his improbable, but true, transformation from small-town businessman, father and former cop to gay white-collar criminal and ingenious jailbreaker.

After a car crash, Russell's life takes a most unusual roller coaster ride that leads him to a life of crime, being gay, and falling in love with his cellmate Phillip Morris (played by Ewan McGregor, Star Wars).

Between 1993 and 1998, the clever Russell broke out of a Texas jail four times in five years and always on a Friday the 13th; twice landing into a six-figure job as a CFO of a major company.

Russell's enduring love for one-time fellow convict Morris, and the dream of being together and free, proves to be his Achilles heel that foils his plans.

Both Carrey and McGregor are scheduled to appear at the film's opening.

The Park City, Utah festival will also premiere director/writer Peter Bratt's La Mission.

In the middle of the Hispanic San Francisco district of La Mission, Che (played by Benjamin Bratt, Law and Order) is the baddest Chicano on the block. A hard knocks life lived behind prison bars and Tequila shots, Che prods on for his beloved son, Jesse.

Che's macho world is crushed when he discovers that Jesse is gay. He responds to the revelation by violently severing all ties with his son.

La Mission is the story of how a proud father and a lost son mend their relationship, breaking with the violence of the past.

Queer Lounge, the unique gay and lesbian film networking event sponsored by GLAAD, will host a panel on January 20 starring the cast and crew of La Mission. Panelists will debate the role of culture in homophobia.
