1985 is full of life. Dallas-based director Yen Tan’s latest feature film gracefully portrays one man’s struggle with coming out while simultaneously coming to terms with the AIDS crisis of the Eighties. Starring Cory Michael Smith, Virginia Madsen, Michael Chiklis, Jamie Chung and Aidan Langford, the film follows Adrian (Smith), a closeted young man who goes home for the holidays, coming into collision with his family over his sexual identity and struggling to reveal his dire circumstances to them.
