Tony Kushner in Making the Boys

Making the Boys

2009 NR

Revered by some for breaking new ground and reviled by others for reinforcing stereotypes, The Boys in the Band was the first gay-themed film to reach a mainstream audience. This documentary paints a vivid picture of how it got there. Through interviews with Tony Kushner, Edward Albee and more -- plus wonderful period footage of Hollywood's gay past (think Roddy MacDowell and Sal Mineo) -- the film reveals The Boys in the Band's enduring legacy.
