My Own Private Idaho
Introduced by critic and historian Lee Gambin
Gus Van Sant's poetic and lyrical take on Shakespeare's Henry IV and V set amongst the world of street hustlers in the Pacific Northwest is a tragic and monumental landmark in the early 90s New Queer Cinema movement.
Starring heartthrobs Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix in their most profound roles, the film examines human loneliness, struggle and desperation while painting a complex and introspective view of sex work and strained relationships.
