Giltz, Michael, The Advocate (The national gay & lesbian newsmagazine)


September

Hollywoodland (Focus Features) If Brandon Routh left you cold as Superman, how about Ben Affleck? He plays actor George Reeves (TV's Superman) in this look at the star's mysterious death. Adrien Brody, Diane Lane, and Bob Hoskins costar. (Sept. 8)

The Covenant (Sony) A male The Craft? That's our take on this story of four hot guys with a supernatural legacy who must fight evil. The cast looks very WB with names that invite all sorts of jokes: Steven Strait, Toby Hemingway, Sebastian Stan, Chace Crawford, and as if all that weren't enough, Taylor Kitsch. (Sept. 8)

The Black Dahlia (Universal) Scarlett Johansson, Hilary Swank, and Mia Kirshner bring voluptuous oomph to this noirish tale based on one of Hollywood's legendary murders. Josh Hartnett and Aaron Eckhart are the cops who are probably putty in their hands. (Sept. 15)

The Queen (Miramax) Helen Mirren looks spot-on as Elizabeth II in this intimate drama about her relationship with U.K. prime minister Tony Blair. Stephen Frears (Prick Up Your Ears, My Beautiful Laundrette) directs. (Sept. 30)

Home of Phobia (a.k.a. Freshman Orientation) (Regent) Sam Huntington (Jimmy Olsen of Superman Returns) plays a college freshman who pretends to be gay in a prank to get a hot girl to date him. Out actress Heather Matarazzo and John Goodman costar. (Sept.)

October

Shortbus (ThinkFilm) Writer-director John Cameron Mitchell's heady follow-up to Hedwig and the Angry Inch is this all-embracing, envelope-pushing comedy about sex and love (in every possible combination) in the fairy-tale New York City of our dreams. You'll never think of "The Star-spangled Banner" in the same way again. (Oct. 6)

Wrestling With Angels: Playwright Tony Kushner (Ocean Releasing) Filmmaker Freida Lee Mock has a field day with Kushner, the endlessly voluble, fascinating, argumentative, and inspiring Pulitzer Prize-winner for Angels in America. George C. Wolfe, Meryl Streep, Tonya Pinkins, Maurice Sendak, and many others make an appearance, but Kushner is always the center of attention. (Oct. 9)

Running With Scissors (Sony) Augusten Burroughs's extravagantly comic tale of growing up queer in a very strange household. [See page 50] (Oct. 11)

Infamous (Warner Independent) Talk about a tough act to follow: In the footsteps of Capote, Infamous is also the story of the writing of In Cold Blood. Toby Jones plays Capote, Sandra Bullock is Harper Lee, and the new Bond (Daniel Craig) is the killer Perry Smith. In this version, Capote is said to clearly fall in love with Perry--and who could blame him? (Oct. 13)

Trade (Lions Gate) German director Marco Kreuzpaintner follows his delightfully fluffy gay romance Summer Storm with this harrowing look at sex trafficking. Young Jorge (Cesar Ramos) teams with a Texas cop (Kevin Kline) to rescue his little sister. (Oct. 13)

Marie Antoinette (Sony) Maybe she never said "Let them eat cake," but Kirsten Dunst as the ill-fated royal sure has style. Manolo Blahniks fit for a queen and great pop songs are just the start in this boldly modern, never-dull period piece by director Sofia Coppola.
