Lavender Short Film

"We were just… checking in with each other." Fox Searchlight has released the acclaimed short film titled Lavender online this week as part of their "Searchlight Shorts" program, highlighting great short films for all of us to enjoy. Lavender premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and is the third short made by Brooklyn-based filmmaker Matthew Puccini. The film stars Michael Hsu Rosen as a young gay man who grows increasingly entangled in the marriage of an older couple. Also starring Michael Urie, Ken Barnett, and Christopher Schaap. With cinematography by Brandon Roots. There's a marvelous softness to this film, a deep understanding conveyed through the power of great cinema. It's worth a watch.
