Imagine Hollywood decided to remake The Talented Mr. Ripley and gear it more towards a younger audience-base. Now, imagine that they found a ‘talented’ writer/director to put her own original twist on the subject matter. Then you get something like The Silent Thief. But, keep in mind – this film is no remake; it’s a wholly original take on familiar themes of family and belonging. Toby Hemingway, in a powerful performance, stars as Brennan, an unusual young photographer who ends up renting a room from a normal suburban family, the Hendersons (Frances Fisher & Kurt Fuller play the parents; Scout-Taylor Compton & Cody Longo the kids). Brennan is quiet, keeps to himself as much as possible and, somehow, manages to rub the Hendersons eldest son, Mike, the wrong way. But Mike is hiding a secret just like Brennan. Slowly, the Hendersons start to realize that the tenant in their home might be more than they ever bargained for. Filled with stellar performances and crisp, clear writing from co-writer/director Jennifer Clary, The Silent Thief is an intense psychological thriller that takes a number of unexpected twists and turns.

Screening with the short film "Troy: Naked Boys Behind Bars, Sing!"

Based on the popular, long-running, gay comic strip, “Troy”, this is a silly, sweet, slightly sarcastic, animated satire of cheesy, gaysploitation entertainment.
