2015 QFest: I Am Michael
Ivy League grad Michael Glatze (James Franco) is the handsome, charismatic, and opinionated co-editor of the groundbreaking gay periodical XY Magazine. After moving from San Francisco with his boyfriend (Zachary Quinto), Glatze experiences a traumatic health scare that leads him to find solace in the Bible, question his beliefs, and conclude that he is “a heterosexual person with a homosexual problem.” Rejecting his former life and his friends, Glatze marries a woman and becomes pastor of his own church.
I Am Michael captures one man’s complex and haunting journey through love, denial, and redemption. The cast also includes Daryl Hannah, Emma Roberts, and Lesley Ann Warren. Introduced by director Justin Kelly, recipient of QFest's inaugural Freedom of Vision award.
