THE BOYS IN THE BAND
Friday, June 14–Sunday, June 16
(1970, DCP, 118m) dir William Friedkin w/Kenneth Wilson, Peter White, Leonard Frey. As friends meet for a birthday party, an unexpected straight acquaintance shows up, making for an awkward encounter. Matt Crowley’s insightful script, an adaptation of his off-Broadway play, was among the first to revolve directly around gay men and show them as something other than theatrical caricatures.
