Screening: The Wise Kids


Sunday 12th February, 7:30pm, GFT.

LUYD are co-hosting this screening and Bicola Barratt-Crane, who recently wrote and directed a short film which features teen sexuality as one of its themes, will be taking part on the panel discussion after the film.

This critically acclaimed, coming-of-age drama follows three teenagers from a religious community in South Carolina as they come to terms with separating from each other and embarking on their new lives after high-school graduation. There’s the devout Laura; openly gay Tim, who is anxious to start film school in New York; and Brea who is undergoing a deep crisis of faith. One of the best of a recent spate of dramas observing American Christian life, The Wise Kids features an impressive ensemble cast and a sympathetic depiction of the conflict between sexuality and religion.

This screening will be introduced by LGBT Youth Scotland and followed by a panel discussion to celebrate LGBT History Month.
