This sophisticated, powerfully acted romantic drama puts a nuanced twist on the classic coming-out story. Set in Santiago, Chile, and starring two of Chile’s sexiest television heartthrobs, In the Grayscale follows a journey of sexual discovery for Bruno (Francisco Celhay), a successful married architect with a loving wife and son. After he has a sexual encounter with Fer (Emilio Edwards), a hunky, openly gay young man, he undertakes an unexpected and passionate romance. He begins to question his sexuality and the complicated paths life may take us on. First-time feature director Claudio Marcone reveals new and surprising depths in this adult coming-out tale by focusing on fine-grained emotional shadings and performances in this lushly shot film. Available November 3 from Wolfe Video (wolfevideo.com). —Troy Carrington
