Here's a first poster for director Rodney Evans sophomore effort, The Happy Sad, which will be making its World Premiere at Frameline San Francisco International LGBT FIlm Festival, as a Showcase Screening, on Tuesday, June 25th, 9:30pm at the Castro Theater.
Rodney's 2nd feature follows two young couples in New York - one black and gay, one white and heterosexual - find their lives intertwined as they create new relationship norms, explore sexual identity, and redefine monogamy.
The film's cast includes: LeRoy McClain (The History Boys), Sorel Carradine (The Good Doctor), Charlie Barnett (Gayby, Chicago Fire), Cameron Scoggins (Lovers), Maria Dizzia (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Louie), Sue Jean Kim (Bachelorette), Jamie Harrold (Erin Brockovich, The New Tenants - 2010 Academy Award Winner - Best Live Action short), Michael Nathanson (Side Effects, Time Freak - 2012 Academy Award Nomination - Best Live Action short).
After its Frameline premiere, the film will head to the Philadelphia QFest, as a Centerpiece Selection, next month; and then, at Outfest - The Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival - also next month.
