Here’s the official trailer of After Louie, the upcoming romantic drama movie directed by Vincent Gagliostro based on a script he co-wrote with Anthony Johnston and starring Alan Cumming, Zachary Booth, Wilson Cruz (yep, the chap from Star Trek Discovery), Sarita Choudhury, Patrick Breen, and David Drake:
“After Louie makes sense of contemporary gay life through the story of Sam, a man who came of age during the AIDS crisis, who must take a step back to understand how he — and his community — got to where they are today. To do that, he must first meet a guileless guide to the younger generation of gay men, a 29-year old writer named Braeden. Sam was a member of the AIDS political activist group ACT UP and saw most of his friends die several decades ago; Braeden is part of a generation that knows about the AIDS crisis, but has never had to deal with the trauma that so informs Sam’s life, then and now.
After Louie is a portrait of what happened to us — a generation of people who were young activists during the AIDS epidemic, who today continue to be affected and haunted by their history.
By confronting the end of an era, and provoking a conversation between generations, I hope to dare us to dream of a new and vibrant future, again.
A quote form the trailer: “It’s all a beautiful illusion…” Talking about life? Love? Both?
Anyway, there’s also a film poster:
The release date of the movie After Louie is set to March 30, 2018.
