'I Am Michael'

Gay-rights activist Michael Glatze had long been a posterboy for queer political action; then, in 2007, he suddenly embraced Christianity, disavowed his homosexuality and stunned everyone who knew him. Director Justin Kelly's feature debut attempts to find out why Glatze pulled a 180-degree ideological turn; the fact that James Franco is playing this divisive figure doesn't suggest star vehicle so much as a continuation of his fascination with gay/straight semiotics (see Interior: Leather Bar). Expect some interesting post-screening Q&As.
