Call Your Father
2016


Usually a reserved guy, Greg struggles to keep up with young, unpredictable Josh on their first date. But as the night continues, things spiral out of control and the two men must confront the generational divide in this cutting and insightful comedy about what it means to be gay in contemporary America.
