Movie of the Week

WATCH: Michael Urie Philanders with Tobias Segal in “Petunia”

If you liked him on Ugly Betty and adored him in his super-gay role on Partners, you’ll love Michael Urie‘s turn as George, the philandering bisexual in Ash Christian‘s dysfunctional family comedy-drama, Petunia. Urie’s gay male love interest is the painfully insecure Charlie Petunia (played by quirky-cute Tobias Segal), while the fabulous Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect) plays his understanding wife. The film’s ensemble cast is rounded out by Christine Lahti as Charlie’s Mom (a messed up psychotherapist whose marriage to emotionally checked-out husband David Rasche is totally on the rocks), and Thora Birch (American Beauty) as the bad girl sister-in-law messing around with both of Charlie’s brothers — Eddie Kaye Thomas (American Pie) and Jimmy Heck. Writer-director Ash Christian (Mangus!, Fat Girls) gives a characteristically twisted take on family secrets and gay identity in this New York City comedy-drama.

Petunia is this week’s WolfeOnDemand.com Movie of the Week. Watch the trailer above and rent or download it directly from WolfeOnDemand.com now.
