10. FILM: Norman
Cougar Town’s Dan Byrd, who played a bullied gay teen in Easy A, stars as the titular troubled high schooler — he fakes cancer while caring for his dying dad — in Jonathan Segal’s lyrical coming-of-age dramedy, which opens October 21 in limited release. Straw Dogs baddie Billy Lush (pictured) also stars as Norman’s gay best friend James, who tries to convince him to join the drama club. For more info visit normanthemovie.com.
9. DVD: The One
Though it begins with a gossipy gay brunch in Manhattan, Caytha Jentis’s sweet and sturdy romantic comedy is refreshingly full of surprises. Jon Prescott, who played Neal Cassady in Howl, stars as Daniel, a closeted jock who appears consumed by his inconvenient lust and gnawing stomach ulcers as his pregnant wife eventually wises up to the fact that his heart belongs to Tommy, a charismatic scamp played by Ian Novick.
8. FILM: Paul Goodman Changed My Life
Out director Jonathan Lee introduces a new generation to late intellectual Paul Goodman, a countercultural and highly influential sociologist, anarchist, pacifist, and openly bisexual father best remembered as the author of Growing Up Absurd and the 1969 essay “Being Queer.” Produced by trans filmmaker Kimberly Reed, this new documentary runs through November 1 at New York’s Film Forum.
