GODS AND MONSTERS

A deserved Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, a Best Actor nomination for Ian McKellen's greatest film performance, a Best Supporting Actress nomination for the excellent Lynn Redgrave, and more than 30 awards from Critics Associations and festivals for a film that now enjoys the reputation of a contemporary classic of queer cinema. Based on the life of homosexual Hollywood director James Whale (“Bride of Frankenstein’), Bill Condon's masterpiece tells the story of the friendship and secret attraction that develops between the aging director and a young gardener (Brendan Fraser).
