DIRECTOR: Nathan Adloff
CAST: Molly Shannon, Tim Boardman
90 mins

In the year of dial-up internet (1999), high school senior Miles Walton dreams of escaping his small Illinois farming town for Chicago. When his father passes away suddenly, leaving Miles and his mother nearly penniless, Miles must rely on winning a college scholarship – his only option is to join the girls volleyball team!

Miles is young and gay and played by good looking Tim Boardman however his sexuality is never seen as a plot device. The level of detail in the film is probably down to the semi-autobiographical nature of the story.

This second feature by Adloff has been well received at festivals during the summer taking the OUTFEST Audience Award for US Best Feature.

The film’s director Nathan Adloff will be crossing the pond to join us in Cardiff to introduce his film.
