RupertEverett

50 Shades of Gay

“Moving, inspiring, challenging and richly enjoyable documentary.” The Telegraph

“Rupert is an excellent guide. He listens, he talks, sometimes he’s outrageous…he’s charming, funny, clever, handsome and posh; because he’s Rupert Everett.” The Guardian

“If Everett’s rattle around gay Britain was thoughtful and good-humoured, it was distinguished by a contradiction at its heart, which only made things more interesting. Everett emphasised he wouldn’t want any of the gay advances to be undone – even as he lamented the loss of outsider spirit of the old days.” The Times

In this documentary, to mark the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK, Rupert Everett charts the changes in gay life and culture over the last five decades. Since 1967 much has been achieved in terms of openness and acceptance, but have some of the things that Rupert most wants to celebrate about gay culture – its rebelliousness and outsiderness, for example – faded in the process of assimilation into the mainstream?
