AKRON offers a gay coming-of-age tale with a refreshing twist-none of its characters are in search of self- or familial acceptance, because they've all already achieved it. Set against the backdrop of midwest Ohio suburbia, where familial cohesion and domestic stability are cultural commodities, the film instead explores the damage that can be done by other kinds of buried secrets, and the resilience and forgiveness it takes to heal that damage.
AKRON blends a refreshing love story with an emotional family drama to tell a unique and compelling story of family, love, loss, and acceptance. Directed by Sasha King & Brian O'Donnell, written by Brian O'Donnell
On DVD February 7!
