The multi-award-winning drama Yes, starring Nolan Gould (Modern Family) and Tim Realbuto, will be released come October 5, 2020, from Stonecutter.
For those looking for a new movie with an interesting premise and certain queer elements, I would like to direct you all toward Yes. According to the press release, it has already won numerous awards including Best Picture, Best Director (Rob Margolies), and Best Leading Actor (Tim Realbuto). It has won accolades at the Hollywood Moving Image Awards as well as IndieFEST Film Awards.
The official description reads:
Yes tells the story of alcoholic, pill-popping, washed up, ex-child star Patrick Nolan (Tim Realbuto), who is begrudgingly dragged from his nearly uninhabitable apartment by his sister Annie (Jenna Leigh Green) to see his niece in her high school production of ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ Starring as Romeo is 17-year-old Jeremiah (Nolan Gould), who immediately catches Patrick’s eye. Patrick, who was involved in a scandal involving a minor years earlier (which ruined his career and his life), decides to mentor Jeremiah. What begins as an innocent acting lesson turns into something much more dangerous, and a love affair of two surprisingly common minds. The destruction, or salvation, of the two main characters will last a lifetime.
Here’s the trailer!
The cast also includes Siobhan Fallon Hogan (Saturday Night Live), Oscar Nuñez (The Office), and Jenna Leigh Green (Sabrina the Teenage Witch). Along with starring, Tim Realbuto also wrote Yes. According to IMDb, this film is based on Realbuto’s critically acclaimed Off-Broadway play.
For those interested, Yes will be available on Comcast, Cox, Charter, iTunes, Directv, Amazon Video Direct, Verizon Fios, Dish Network, Google Play, and more beginning October 5, 2020.
I have a link to a screener. So, keep an eye out for my review of this movie.
Telling a story that involves a minor’s relationship with a grownup can be quite tricky. So, I’m looking forward to seeing how this film handles such a sensitive subject.
While I’m not familiar with Realbuto’s work, I am quite familiar with Gould due to his role in the highly-popular Modern Family series. He’s also shown his support for the LGBTQ+ community over the years. He was in the music videos for Logic’s 1-800-273-8255 and Kevin McHale‘s “Help Me Now” (my reaction). It’s good to see his career growing.
