After twenty years of a harmonious life in an open marriage, two middle-aged workaholics, cultural editor Hanna and architect Simon, take another bite out of life. Without telling each other, they both fall in love and enter into a relationship with the charismatic Adam. Their random, secret, and unexpected common acquaintance helps them to discover in themselves sexual freedom without doing harm to each other. The film breaks down some relationship clichés and looks at the heroes-at first glance a seemingly heterosexual couple- in unusual situations where they gradually realize their own identities. This layered story about a love triangle is an intimate delight from the director of the film, Run Lola Run.

Sting’s song of the same name was a tribute to the protagonist of this biography - the godfather of all fearless, modern, openly gay authors and the legendary performer, Quentin Crisp. Since the 1920s a veteran of the rigidly persecuted, British gay scene and always the flawlessly elegant English gentleman, who would never leave his house without a dazzling scarf and eye shadow. After the publication of Quentin’s scandalous memoirs, the gay icon takes his one-man-show across the ocean at the end of the 1970s. Thus Quentin meets New York City and mainly, New York gets to meet Quentin. Returning to his portrayal in the adaptation of The Naked Civil Servant, stars the enchanting John Hurt.

In the retro-stylistic homage to 1950s American melodramas of Douglas Sirk, this film emancipates the female protagonist, who is dealing with her husband's closeted homosexuality as well as her own improper interracial romance in the stainless-on-the-surface conservative society of rich suburbia. The ongoing collaboration of Todd Haynes with the actress Julianne Moore in Far From Heaven, constitues a play with classic Hollywood techniques, opens up the possibilites of nonconformity, and also gained many acclaimed awards as well as four Oscar nominations.

The idyll of a perfect, stable family in a beautiful suburban house is shaken when the coming-of-age kids of the couple Nic (Annette Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore) discover and bring home their biological father – an anonymous sperm donor and active drifter, Paul (Mark Ruffalo). Earning four Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture), the comedy by the director of the cult classic, High Art, narrates about parenthood and marriage with honesty and clever humor - like when Jules is explaining to her 15-year-old son why his lesbian mothers indulge in watching male gay porn.

Julianne Moore concentrates the title savage grace in her depiction of a magnetic, unrestrained woman as well as a destructive force in Tom Kalin’s film that is based on the actual infamous “American tragedy.” The aestheticized perfection and beauty of the sun-lit, luxurious lifestyle is bond with darkness of the grimly dysfunctional Baekeland family and as the homosexual Tony is growing up, he is pulled deeper and deeper under the morbid, controlling influence of his mother. The history of the desintegration and downfall of a family, all the way to the murder on November 17th, 1972 constitutes a psychologically true drama and an understanding analysis of the motive.
