Spring brings two wonderful things: The first, and best for Twin Citians, is the warm weather that gets us all out of our homes for the first time in months; the second is the spring edition of Lavender’s OUT at the Movies.
Making its local premiere is redwoods. It’s the story of a love so strong that one man is willing to risk everything to follow his heart.
Everett, played by Brendan Bradley, has everything a gay man ever could want: a loving boyfriend, Miles (Tad Coughenour), and a beautiful son they raise together as a family. The problem is that their life is comfortably platonic, and the only thing keeping them together is their son. When Miles and their son travel out of town, Everett is relieved to have time to himself finally—that is, until a strikingly handsome writer, Chase (Matthew Montgomery), pulls into his driveway, and Everett realizes how much he truly is missing in life.
Written and directed by David Lewis, redwoods has been called “an extraordinary piece of filmmaking that truly moves you” by GaydarNation, and “the perfect night in for gay romantics…a simple tale of unshakable love beautifully captured” by Gaycel
