Breaking Glass Pictures will release the heartfelt LGBTQ dramedy Give or Take in New York at the Quad Cinemas and Los Angeles at the Laemmle Royal come February 11, 2022. The award-winning film will be available on DVD and Digital on February 22, 2022.
From director Paul Riccio, Give or Take stars Dan in Real Life alum and two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz alongside Jamie Effros (On), Joanne Tucker (The Report), and Cheri Oteri (Saturday Night Live).
The premise deals with a disillusioned New Yorker, Martin (Jamie Effros), who, having received news that his father has died, goes home to Cape Cod and begins to prepare the house for sale while… wait for it… sharing the house with his father’s temperamental live-in boyfriend!
There’s a lot of baggage involved as far as Martin and his father Kenneth’s relationship’s concerned. Kenneth came out later in life as a gay man after his wife died and was able to find love with a younger man named Ted (Butz).
The film will show Martin and Ted trying to grieve in their own way and figuring out how to interact with each other.
Here’s the trailer!
The story kind of reminds me of the manga titled My Brother’s Husband, which showcased relationship dynamics between a queer and straight person remembering a queer loved one.
“Give or Take is the definition of a comedy with heart,” shared Riccio. “It’s a detailed and authentic narrative, affording real depth to the regret, resentment, and misunderstanding that can take shape around a loved one’s death. Led by the heart-wrenching performance of Norbert Leo Butz, Give or Take paints a compelling, moving portrait of a son’s journey to understand and accept the complexities of his father.”
