The Hanging Garden
1 hr 31 min
Thom Fitzgerald's award-winning debut film, tells the elliptical tale of a 25 year-old gay man, Sweet William, who returns to his family in Nova Scotia after a 10-year absence, only to discover that his family is just as dysfunctional as ever. His sister is about to marry a man who makes eyes at William across the room while his father boozes it up, as usual. Plagued by visions of his miserable youth and confronted by the paths taken by his equally pained siblings, William is both appalled and inspired, and resolves to take control of the past and his present.
