In the new film Turtle Hill, Brooklyn named for the New York neighborhood which provides its setting, a young gay couple prepare for a birthday party that become a night of surprises that will expose unexpected truths about this relationship. Booze does that, you know.

“[It’s] the story of a loving relationship challenged by cheating, and everyone can relate to that, but it’s rarely portrayed honestly in film,” director Ryan Gielen tells Queerty. “We want gay audiences to see themselves on screen, the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful.”

The film opens at New York’s Quad Cinema today.
