Gun Hill Road

Ignoring the fact that this Sundance hit is virtually the same story as last year’s criminally overlooked La Mission starring the even more criminally overlooked Benjamin Bratt, Gun Hill Road is powerful stuff and should appeal to a wider audience.

This time Esai Morales plays the tough Latino ex-con leaving prison only to find his son likes hanging with the homies, but in a different way, and worries what their macho community will make of Michael/Vanessa’s sexuality.

Writer/director Rashaad Ernesto Green went hunting among New York’s coolest club kids for an unknown to play the part of the transgender son and found the striking form of Harmony Santana who steals the film à la The Crying Game.
