Thank you, Michael Arkin! (to the blogosphere: I also wrote Michael a thoughtful, hand-written note of thanks. Long before I was acquainted with Derek Blasberg's work, I was trained in proper etiquette by my mother).
My college boyfriend's father was gay. I remember the great secrecy and emotion surrounding him telling me about his father in the early 90s. Times are so different today for the gay community and this film gives a broader historical perspective about the lifestyles of closeted gays in the 20th century.
I have been told that I will like Mike Mills' style if I like Wes Anderson's. This is too delicious!
Naturally, I have great affection for Christopher Plummer, who stars in this film, as he will always be the Captain singing "Edelweiss" in my memory.
