THE BOYS IN THE BAND (2020): The Things I Liked…

Starring Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto and Andrew Rannells, the first great thing about director Joe Mantello’s The Boys In The Band is all the performances. 

Second is all the funny moments with great comic timing, and how very well-written and paced it is. 

I love the way the story unfolds like a beautiful play. A truth that makes sense since The Boys In The Band is a film adaptation of Mart Crowley’s play of the same name. A play that features several interesting characters, and manages the tension in scenes so well, that you can’t wait for all to be revealed. 

In addition to capturing several moments of heartbreaking truth brilliantly, other personal highlights include the set design and the way the production is lit. Even though almost all of the action takes place during a party in a New York City apartment in 1968, there isn’t a moment when you find yourself wanting a change of scenery. All because what’s happing inside is thoroughly engaging, thanks to the very watchable complex characters.

Characters with understandable complexities, especially considering the difficulties they faced during that particular time in American history. A time when just being themselves was a far less accepted thing. And it is this reality that’s the underlying fuel. Fuel that results in a perfectly watchable film, thanks to great writing and brilliant performances by all.

Watch The Boys In The Band because it’s good.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of The Boys in the Band (2020).


New Joe Mantello directed drama The Boys In The Band stars Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto and Andrew Rannells.

Set at a birthday party in New York City in 1968, a group of gay men find the drinks and laughs interrupted when a visitor from the host’s past turns the evening upside down.

I’m in for the intriguing tensions, good dialogue and great performances especially from Jim Parsons. I’ve been a fan of his since his turn as Sheldon Cooper on NBC’s The Big bang Theory.

Also, it looks as though everything happens in one apartment which should make things even more interesting.

Andrew Rannells, Charlie Carver, Robin de Jesus, Brian Hutchison, Michael Benjamin Washington, Tuc Watkins, John DeLuca and Tyler Miles also star.

The Boys In The Band Release Dates: September 30th, 2020 (US & UK)/Netflix…

Directed by Silas Howard, A Kid Like Jake stars Claire Danes, Jim parsons, Octavia Spencer and Priyana Chopra.

Parsons and Danes play a Brooklyn based couple whose four-year-old son’s preschool director points out that his gender-nonconforming play may be more than just a phase…

The subject matter is so very interesting and is a great reminder of why I love movies and the often useful stories they tell.

Besides the great cast and promising story, I’m really looking forward to the beautiful images of a well lit New York City, a place I always miss.

A Kid Like Jake Release Dates: June 1st, 2018 (US)…

Starring Taraji P Henson, Janelle Monae and Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures tells the true story of 3 African American women whose mathematical abilities / contributions led to NASA’s first successful space missions..

I just love when people achieve far more than other’s expectations of their abilities. Taraji P. Henson and Octavia are wonderful actresses so i can’t wait to see the inspiring story of mathematician Katherine Johnson on the big screen.

Jim Parsons, Kevin Costner and Kirsten Dunst also star while Theodore Melfi directs.

Hidden Figures Release Dates: January 13th, 2017 (US); February 24th, 2017 (UK)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂
