The news that Director Rob Williams'
holiday treat Make The Yuletide Gay will hit the DVD rack just
in time for the holidays this year might serve as some consolation as
you broil in the summer heat.
Also being distributed about the same
time will be the quirky Spanish offering Chef's Special by
Director Nacho G. Velilla.
In Chef's Special, restaurateur
Maxi seasons his food – and his life – simply; preferring
uncomplicated recipes and an unattached love life. All this changes
when a hot Argentine ex-football player moves in next door. Comedy
ensues as Maxi struggles to remain in the closet to his staff and
family. The Spanish newspaper Diario El Mundo called the
Spanish film “inspired.”
Chef's Special arrives on DVD
October 20, and is available for pre-order now.
And two weeks before Thanksgiving, Make
the Yuletide Gay arrives on DVD after about a year on the gay &
lesbian film festival circuit.
The film gives the old comic premise of
“meet my parents at Christmas” a gay spin. The movie includes
the genre's three requisites: the fawning but clueless parents (the
Gunnundersons), the distant parents (the Stanfords), and the cute
couple who yearn for a Merry Christmas curled up in a stocking hung
by the chimney with care (Olaf and Nathan).
Problem is Olaf, the big college gay
rights advocate, remains closeted to his lovable parents. So when
boyfriend Nathan decides to join the holiday cheer at the
Gunnunderson home … well, you've seen this film, right? (Pssst:
Gay double entendres and homo hijinks ensue.)
Still, Director Rob Williams' latest
film is a sweet treat certain to be a gay family Christmas favorite.
Make the Yuletide Gay arrives on
DVD November 10, and is available for pre-order now.
