His father and mother struggle to reconcile their love for their son with their beliefs. Fearing a loss of family, friends and community, Jared is pressured into attending a conversion therapy program.

BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN – 135 MIN – 16 L S
CAST – Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams
When cowboys Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) meet during a month of sheep ranching in Wyoming, they share lust, passion, and genuine affection — though in 1963, they can’t imagine their feelings defining themselves. Their silence lasts for years: Each goes home, Ennis marries his girlfriend Alma (Michelle Williams), Jack longs for Ennis. They agree to meet again and then feel unable to stop. They can’t articulate their feelings, only marvel at their own passion and tell their families they have gone “fishing.” Alma discovers the truth (which she keeps to herself); horrified and angry, she silently watches him leave every few months and return with no fish. The men can’t acknowledge their relationship as a choice and a commitment, only as a “thing.”
DE-LOVELY – 125 MIN – PG V
CAST – Kevin Kline. Cole Porter ; Ashley Judd. Linda Porter ; Jonathan Pryce. Gabe ; Kevin McNally. Gerald Murphy ; Sandra Nelson. Sara Murphy.
At the staging of a musical production based on his life story, songwriter Cole Porter (Kevin Kline) begins to reflect on his life and career. As he trades notes with the play’s director, Gabe (Jonathan Pryce), Porter recollects his meteoric rise on Broadway during the mid-1920s and his first meeting with wife and muse Linda Thomas (Ashley Judd). He also recalls his many extramarital, homosexual dalliances, and the deep depression and seclusion of his final years.

Armand and Albert have a home life many would envy. They share a long-term committed relationship encompassing their lives and careers, and have together raised Armand’s son, Val, into a caring, responsible, and mature young man. So, when Val arrives home and announces his engagement to the daughter of an ultra-conservative U.S. Senator, what choice is there but to accept his decision with love? Meanwhile, Senator Keeley and his wife are facing bigger problems than their daughter’s unexpected engagement. The senator is watching his right-wing constituency evaporate with the scandalous demise of his closet political ally. A visit to the future in-laws could be just the thing to take the public’s focus off the Keeley’s messy predicament. With the impending visit of his fiancee’s rigid family, Val asks his father to straighten up the apartment just a bit. All it entails is the removal or Armand’s collection, furnishings, clothes, job…and Albert.
