It’s been a while since we’ve had a “gays in forbidden love” romantic drama, but Burning Blue (in select theaters and on VOD June 3) will fill that void.
The film tells the story of two Navy soldiers falling in love while serving under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and if a just-released clip is any indication, there will be enough smoldering glances between the two hunky leads and big, bad homophobes to make this worth watching.
Burning Blue is adapted from the popular 1995 play that opened at The King’s Head Theater in London before moving to the West End. It also enjoyed sold-out runs in South Africa and Israel, before eventually coming to the U.S., where it was produced in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Off-Broadway. The story has had a turbulent journey to the big screen, which you can read about here.
