GLN to Co-Present Film at Reeling 2005, Chicago's Lesbian & Gay Film Fest

The Gay Liberation Network has been chosen to co-present a new film, "Hate Crime," at this year's Reeling 2005: Chicago's Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, 9:45 pm this Friday, Nov. 4th at Landmark's Century Centre Cinema, 2828 N. Clark Street (just north of Diversey). Named among "the fest's best" by this week's Chicago Free Press, "Hate Crime" tells the story of a cute gay couple planning a commitment ceremony when the son of hateful preacher moves in next door...

Here is a description of the film from the folks at Reeling 2005:

"Robbie and Trey, a handsome gay couple, really do have it all -- loving friends and family, a beautiful home in the suburbs, and the promise of marriage and kids on the horizon. All that changes when Chris Boyd, son of a notorious homophobic pastor, moves in next door. But things are not as they seem in this intelligent murder mystery with a suspenseful plot that will keep you guessing until the end. The acting is superb all-around, with a supporting cast that includes Cindy Pickett, Susan Blakely, Bruce Davison, and Giancarlo Esposito, among others. Directed by Tommy Stovall, US, 2005 Video, 106 min."
