The Roxy Theater is bringing back its Out at The Roxy film series, a selection of films curated to highlight stories featuring the LGBTQIA community, hosted in partnership with EmpowerMT.
Being 17 is a moving exploration of adolescent sexual awakening from renowned French director André Téchiné (Wild Reeds) with a script he co-wrote with director Céline Sciamma (Girlhood). Damien and Thomas are French teenagers from very different upbringings who go to the same high school but can’t stand each other. When circumstances bring Damien’s mother Marianne to invite Thomas to live with them, the young men are forced to coexist and work through their emerging attraction and complicated desires.
Out at the Roxy is sponsored by Bikers Against Bullies. Being 17 sponsored by Western MT LGBT Community Center.
