A Preacher’s Son Struggles With Being Gay In Compelling New Drama

by Jenni February 08, 2016

Henry Gamble's Birthday Party
Since he emerged on the scene in 2011 with his beautiful coming of age drama, The Wise Kids, Chicago-based actor-filmmaker Stephen Cone has been one of the most acclaimed gay directors of the past few years (The Wise Kids won the Outfest Grand Jury awards for both Best Feature and Best Screenplay).

Cone’s latest teen gay ensemble tale hits on many of the same themes as The Wise Kids — most notably the over-arching oppressive homophobia of a Christian evangelist community. Also like The Wise Kids, Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party features a charming young preacher’s kid protagonist grappling with his emerging gayness. Star Cole Doman is definitely one to watch.

Look for the film on VOD and DVD soon from Wolfe Video. Above is the brand new Wolfe trailer for the film, just posted today.
