Gay Essential Films To Watch, 2 Minutes Later

Set in Philadelphia, Abigail Marks (Jessica Graham) is a femme fatale lesbian private eye, who has been hired to find Kyle Dalmar a famous portrait photographer by his agent Kate (Annette Kaplafka).  His identical twin brother, Michael (Michael Molina) has come to town and discovered that no one has seen Kyle for two week.  Michael pretends that he is Kyle and discovers that his brother had many enemies.  When he meets Abigail she rescues him from being assaulted, and the two join forces to discover what happened to Kyle, he’s closeted; she’s an alcoholic.  Abigail accuses Michael of being sensitive; he accuses her of being butch.

Their only clue is a camera memory stick, filled to capacity with his last models and photo shoots, Kyle is a Robert Mapplethorpe-like photographer with a penchant for the kinky. Could one of them know Kyle’s whereabouts or, perhaps, even be guilty of foul play?  2 Minutes later can mean the difference between life and death.
