With LGBTQ+-themed films getting more and more popular at award shows like the Oscars, it's as good a time as any to look at the best of what queer cinema has given us. Some are obvious choices, like critical darlings and fan favorites 'Moonlight' and 'Carol.' Other picks would be more to the liking of foreign cinema buffs. And then there are the films that are on the radar of very few, but are nonetheless absolute gems.
A new entry to the list is Billy Eichner's upcoming comedy 'Bros.' The actor and comedian presented the movie, which he co-wrote, at CinemaCon on April 27. He praised it as the “first major studio film with an all openly LGBTQ cast." Eichner continued, “We have waited a long, long time,” and joked that "it only took a century!” The film also features gay actors playing straight parts, another progressive move within the film industry. 'Bros' will star Billy Eichner and Luke McFarland as two men struggling with their commitment problems as they try to have a relationship.
“I know it’s weird for me to say this about my movie, but it is unlike any comedy or romantic comedy that you have ever seen,” Eichner said. “It’s not about gay people suffering tragically. It’s about how hard it is to find another tolerable human being to go through life with.” 'Bros' hits cinemas in September.
