Scot’s a little different. Come see why at the Grand Rapids Pride Movie Night, showing the Canadian gay comedy “Breakfast with Scot” at the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts in downtown Grand Rapids on June 19.
A reception begins at 6:30 p.m. and the movie will be shown at 8 p.m.
“Breakfast with Scot,” adapted from a novel by Tufts University professor Michael Downing, stars Tom Cavanagh as Eric and Ben Shenkman as his partner Sam. Eric is a retired hockey player turned television sportscaster, while Sam is a sports lawyer. Both have a very stable, predictable life together.
But when Sam becomes legal guardian of his brother’s stepson Scot, a still-closeted young gay boy, their lives are turned upside down.
Premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2007, the film has received critical acclaim, including winning the Team Family Feature Film Award from the Directors Guild of Canada.
Come see what all the fuss is about as the film kicks off a weekend of West Michigan Pride. Tickets are $10 for this even and can be purchased online or at select Grand Rapids stores. For tickets or more information, visit http://www.westmipride.org.
