So I'm watching "The Broken Hearts Club" and it got me thinking...

    What's your favorite gay movie and why? Lately I've been looking to film and books for a little more understanding to the position of where I am at in my life right... truth is... I need WAYY more gay friends. I feel like I'm at this point where I never did the whole gay scene thing, never really slept around, ... I just sometimes feel like I don't fit in at all. And I love my straight guy friends but truth is.... I'm not about to talk about guys around or with them. It really bothers my spirit.

    Here is a popular existing thread on this topic. I love Broken Hearts Club, also Torch Song Trilogy which is of a completely different time.

    I love Broken Hearts Club, it just served to feed my already-existing Timothy Olyphant crush even more. Latter Days has been one of my favourites for years as well.

    Also love

    Being At Home With Claude

    Diverso da Chi?, an Italian movie I saw at the Inside Out festival last spring as Different from Whom? It's hilarious.

    Film: Parting Glances, mostly because it's extremely well written.
    Books: The Folded Leaf, by William Maxwell (not overly a gay novel but one of the two main characters surely is. Beautiful picture of a male/male bond.)
    Also, Jim Grimsley's Comfort and Joy was a good read.

    Beautiful Things. Great story, cute guys and good music. I wish I had a more casual experience than finding guys on AOL.

    Two others I've liked are "Love! Valour! Compassion!" and "Mulligans". Jason Alexander (George from Seinfeld) is in the first and Charlie David (from Dante's Cove) is in the second.

    Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom was great as well. Seeing guys get married warms my heart.

    At the very least, they're enjoyable for watching on a rainy day or when you have time to kill.

    I'll have to check out Comfort and Joy. I loved Dream Boy but didn't like Winter Birds as much. They made a movie out of Dream Boy but I haven't seen it yet.

    I really like Trick, but my favorite would probably be one called 'Shelter' - it's about an aspiring young artist in California that wants to go to some university for the arts, but feels like he has a responsibility to stay and take car of his drugged-out train-wreck sister's son, until he meets this guy that changes his perspective on some things.

    Get Real

    It's British, so that makes it double the gay.
