Henry Gamble's Birthday Party
Directed by Stephen Cone
With Cole Doman, Pat Healy, Elizabeth Laidlaw, Nina Ganet, Francis Guinan, Kelly O’Sullivan
2015, 86min
Set over 24 climactic hours around a suburban pool party, this minutely observed character study follows the 17-year-old son of an evangelical preacher as he comes to terms with the gap between spiritual faith and carnal desire. As day turns to night, long-held secrets come to light and tightly controlled lives begin to unravel. Featuring a delicately interwoven ensemble, lyrical cinematography, and a lush synth score, Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party turns a sympathetic eye toward the facades we all create.
