All-gay cabler Logo will broadcast The
New Twenty Thursday, October 29.
The broadcast is part of Logo's
impressive third Fall Film Festival, which kicked off on October 18
with the U.S. broadcast premiere of An Englishman In New York.
Twenty is the greatly overlooked
film by writer-director Chris Mason Johnson.
The movie looks at the friendships of
six New Yorkers. The group of hip twenty-somethings (about to turn a
new decade) includes gay and straight members unencumbered by sexual
stereotypes, living in a post urban setting where sexual diversity is
embraced. But it's not paradise for the group, whose friendships are
about to be tested.
“The fact is, gay/straight
friendships – minus the drama – are more and more common for
young adults especially the urban and educated,” Johnson says in
the movie's press kit. “The casual attitude towards gay/straight
bonding for characters like those in The New Twenty might be
summed up as: What's the big deal?”
