Movie Info

Orthodox Judaism and alternative sexualities collide in this drama about the clash between religion and gay relationships. In Brooklyn, two cousins share opposite-sides-of-the-same-coin lifestyles: Charlie is ashamed of his Orthodox heritage but not his male lovers; meanwhile, Manny is true to his faith but longs to have a gay experience. When Manny's father arranges for him to marry a young woman, however, both relatives have to own up to the aspects of their personalities they've been trying to hide. Popster Jill Sobule contributed the film's closing-credits tune.
