4th Man Out

Gay Essential Review: 4th Man Out at BFI Flare

4th Man Out is a heartfelt coming-out comedy with genuine true-to-life awkwardness felt between lifelong friends, family and community as they support the sexual orientation of one of their own. Set in picturesque upstate New York, the film centres on a straight acting boy-next-door who makes the decision, to announce that he is gay during his 24th Birthday celebrations. The ensemble cast deliver near perfect comic timing and at times, Aaron Dancik’s script leaps straight out of RuPauls Drag Race with more brilliant lines than I could make a note of ‘I can’t tell if he’s surprised or mad with that unibrow.’
