Having already secured its place in the Hollywood bible as the first studio film created by the pen of an openly gay screenwriter and a cast (almost) exclusively made up of LGBTQI+ actors, 'Bros' tells the story of two gay men who avoid committing to a relationship at all costs, until they decide to try. The director of ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ and ‘Get Him to the Greek’, Nick Stoller, and the inexhaustible Billy Eichner reference classic romantic comedies, but in a magical way subvert and at the same time reaffirm the stereotypes, thus giving us the comedy of the year. An in-depth, hilarious and deeply cinematic romance about the Grindr age.

A film already listed in the Hollywood bible as the first studio film that was created by an openly gay screenwriter and has an almost exclusively LGBTQ+ cast of actors, ‘Bros’ tells the story of two gay men doing their best to avoid a relationship, until they attempt a relationship between them. The director of ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ and ‘Get Him to the Greek’, Nick Stoller, and the inexhaustible Billy Eichner invoke classic romantic comedies, subverting and confirming at the same time the stereotypes, dealing with contemporary politics, and directing the most simple and complex-free manner the comedy of the year. An insightful, hilarious, and deeply cinematic romance about the Grindr era. Th.K.
