Movie Info

A young boy becomes enamored with a Lucille Ball-like television star -- much to the chagrin of his conservative, 1950s suburban parents -- in this short film from Far From Heaven director Todd Haynes. Though six-year-old Steven Gale (J. Evan Bonifant) loves nothing more than to watch his favorite television starlet, Dottie Frank (Julie Halston), on the "The Dottie Frank Show," the small-screen comedy is generally considered to be for girls, and his parents begin to ponder his sexuality. When Steven wins a contest to visit Dottie on the set, the young fan is suddenly prompted to look deep within himself to realize who he really is.

The trials and tribulations of a so-called Femanino. This short film brings you to a place in childhood that deals with shame, embarrassment and curiosity related to interests one may have that is unlike the others.
