A new strand at the PCC kicks off with a special event at The Prince Charles Cinema... UNICORN NIGHTS. This strand aims to be a celebration of cinema for "all colours of the rainbow, featuring films that look at all things LGBTQUAI (and any other letters that might have been missed)".
It all starts on Sunday 27th September with GET REAL, billed as"a somewhat forgotten but much loved gay teen film from the nineties, which won awards around the world including the Audience Award at The Edinburgh Film Festival. It’s not all fantasy and romance, but deals with the reality of coping with blossoming sexuality in a world which, though only twenty years ago, is so different to that enjoyed by young gay people today. Our hero, sixteen-year-old Steven Carter, has to try and find happiness through cottaging and casual encounters. Initially, it all seems futile, but this hilarious and moving film takes a turn when he encounters the local hottie in a park loo and the worlds of this shy geek and the jock collide."
Alongside the screening will be a panel discussion and Q&A featuring the director Simon Shore, screenwriter Patrick Wilde (who also wrote the original play) and lead actor Ben Silverstone.
