Just four straight blue-collar guys. Only not exactly.
4th Man Out (2015) or Fourth Man Out (original title) is a film directed by Andrew Nackman. The four men are blue collar guys who have been friends since high school. They hang out in bars and strip clubs, play poker together, and have girlfriends whom they might just marry some day.
That's all pretty standard, until one of them tells them that he's gay. The other three guys don't know how to act, what to say, and what not to say. That's the premise of the film-- you've known this guy all your life, and suddenly, he's not exactly the same guy you knew.
Coming out stories are never simple--in real life or in movies. Coming out to your parents is one thing. Coming out to three guys who don't hang out with gays is another matter again.
The film really worked for me, because I thought that the reactions of the three friends were realistic. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad. The three sit around saying, "He's our friend, he's still the same guy. No, he isn't."
There some overwrought moments, and my wife thought that the denouement of one of the sub-plots at the end of the movie was unbelievable. However, we both liked this film, and we think it will appeal to straights as well as to gays.
We saw this film on the large screen at ImageOut, the very successful Rochester LGBTQ Film Festival. It will work very well on the small screen also.
