Witty, knowing and immensely entertaining, Dorian Blues is a delightfully off-kilter coming-of-age tale from debut writer-director Tennyson Bardwell. Adolescence is proving a pain for Dorian (Michael McMillian). He’s an outcast and the butt of classmates jokes at high school, and his football hero brother (Lea Coco) is constantly rescuing him. But everything finally begins to make sense when he realizes that he’s gay. Before his archconservative dad (Steven C. Fletcher, in a hilarious role) can throw him out of the house, he’s off to NYU where he encounters a new world of cafes, sophisticates and handsome men but this life proves just as frustrating as his world back home. Winner of Audience Award, Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival 2004
