WIN Closet Monster on DVD

WIN Closet Monster

Released in 2015, a gay teenager’s self-loathing attacks the body as well as the brain in young Canadian director Stephen Dunn’s stylish first feature Closet Monster. The film stars Connor Jessup, Aaron Abrams, Isabella Rossellini.

A native of St John’s in the island of Newfoundland off Canada’s Atlantic coast, Stephen Dunn has in fact crafted an instant classic of queer cinema that takes the coming-of-age and coming-out tale, rejuvenates it and delivers a film that unapologetically puts the elephant in the room in its very title. Yet, this blunt declaration of intent isn’t just your typical epiphany of sexual identity but rather a thematic allegory bound to the plot point that jump-starts the story.  Read our full review here.
