Coming-of-age. A small-town young man realizes why he's such a misfit - he's gay! Adolescence is proving a pain for the always-thinking Dorian. He's an outcast and the butt of classmates' fag jokes at high school. He's different and understands why when he reaches the conclusion that he's a "stereotypical gay." He soon announces this discovery to his homophobic, Nixon-loving dad. As Dad throws him out of the house, Dorian's off to NYU to encounter a new world of coffee houses, sophisticates and handsome men. Written by
I saw Dorian Blues at the 2004 Jacksonville Film Festival with a packed audience. The poignant, yet funny story of a teenager discovering his sexual orientation and his conservative family's reaction, was unpredictable and left me wanting to see Dorian Blues 2. The writing, directing and performances were world-class. Look for star Michael McMillian in big Hollywood productions soon. This movie came close to winning the Audience Award at the 2004 Jacksonville Film Festival and is getting invited to festivals all over the world. It won the Audience Award and the Emerging Maverick Filmmaker Award at Cinequest Film Festival 2004. This will be one of those indie breakout films when it gets distribution.
