TLA buys Boy Culture

TLA buys Boy Culture

TLA Releasing has acquired all North American, United Kingdom, Australian, and New Zealand theatrical and home entertainment distribution rights to Boy Culture. The film is directed by Q. Allan Brocka, who is a contributing writer for The Advocate and recently wrote and directed Eating Out. He is also currently working on Logo Television's upcoming series Rick & Steve the Happiest Gay Couple in All the World.

"Boy Culture is a fresh, playful film brimming with strong performances, a charismatic cast, and a witty, incisive voice," said Raymond Murray, president of TLA Releasing. "We've always been strong supporters of Q. Allan Brocka's work, and his newest film shows an invigorating, sleek style; very similar to a major studio film, in fact. He is a talented filmmaker and definitely someone who's going to continue creating amazing work."

Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Matthew Rettenmund and adapted to film by Brocka and Philip Pierce, Boy Culture is the candid confession of "X" (Derek Magyar), a male escort who gets romantically entangled with his two roommates, Joey (Jonathon Trent) and Andrew (Darryl Stephens of Noah's Arc and Another Gay Movie), and a reclusive, elderly client, Gregory (Patrick Bauchau of Panic Room). But before Gregory will agree to sex, he tells an unsettling love story spanning 50 years and dares "X" to try something he hasn't felt in years: emotion.

Producer Stephen Israel (Swimming With Sharks) said, "I'm delighted about our collaboration with TLA Releasing. Their dedication and passion in distributing films like Latter Days and Another Gay Movie shows that they are a company who knows how to handle a film like Boy Culture and will go the extra mile to make it a success."

Boy Culture won the Jury Award for Best Feature at the 2006 Philadelphia Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and the Jury Award for Best Screenplay at 2006 Outfest in Los Angeles.
