Part of Queer Qlassics

A sensually fraught vision of the 1950s in which everyone is a gender theorist and semiotician, and everyone’s looks are perfect. Suse (Andrea Riseborough, with John Waters-heroine hair) and Arthur (Harry Melling) are newlyweds who witness a street-gang attack — but before you can say Scorpio Rising, it seems The Young Gents (that’s the gang) awaken some feelings in the couple. Suse finds herself drawn to hand-to-hand violence, while Arthur is taken by Teddy (Karl Glusman), the leader of The Young Gents and a captivator of all the desires. A seductive platter of violent personal revolution — a charcuterie of smoked, grilled and cubed parental and societal expectations accompanied by sweet and savory sensualities built on possibilities.

“This movie is like somebody spiked the punchbowl at the poodle-skirt soiree... A boot-scuffed love-story of tender hearts pricked by barbed wire and slicked back hair crying ten thousand tears.” Jason Adams, My New Plaid Pants

“It’s a relief to be spoken to with such complexity and humor, it’s a relief to watch intelligent art with this level of queer creativity.”  —Drew Burnett Gregory, Autostraddle
