OUT at TIFF: Breakfast With Scot

A queer look at the 2007 Toronto Int. Film Fest

For one week in September the best and brightest of the motion picture industry converge for the Toronto International Film Festival. In collaboration with Xtra.ca and OUTtv, host Matt Thomas chased down the best of the queer stories from the 2007 festival. We’ll be releasing a new segment right here each week. Don’t miss any of them. And don’t forget to tune-in to OUTtv for the complete series and our special presentation coverage of the whole event, coming soon.



SYNOPSIS: Eric (Tom Cavanagh) is a former hockey pro who enjoys a quiet closeted life with his partner Sam (Ben Shenkman). But when these two straight-acting gay men are forced to take care of 11-year-old Scot (Noah Bernett) and his mammoth sissydom their hetero-normative world begins to fall apart.
