Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

"Well, I'm not sure that Brokeback Mountain (2005) and Capote (2005) really qualify as gay films. "Brokeback Mountain" is about two straight men who happen to have a gay affair, and "Capote" is about an author, who happens to be gay, going to any lengths to get his story".


His drama, "Rose", performed by the Royal National Theatre, Cottesloe Stage, was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 2000 (1999 season) for Best New Play. See more »
