Check Out the New 'Gayby' Film Poster and Trailer
Move over Madonna and Rupert Everett, because The Next Best Thing is so 2000; it's all about Gayby.
The irreverent indie rom-com stars out Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark actor Matthew Wilkas as Matt, a creatively stalled graphic novelist who can't get over his ex-boyfriend. Jenn Harris, who's currently skewering Jodie Foster's Clarice Starling in Off-Broadway's Silence! The Musical, stars as Matt's best friend Jenn, a perpetually single hot yoga instructor. Now in their 30s, the old college chums decide to fulfill a long-held promise to have a child together... the old-fashioned way. Bow chicka wow wow! But will unconventional parenthood destroy their friendship and modern family?
Written and directed by Jonathan Lisecki — expanded from his popular short film of the same name — Gayby also features out performance artist Jack Ferver and Girls breakout star Adam Driver. Lisecki appears as Nelson, a sassy, chubby friend taking his romantic chances on the bear scene.
A critical darling of the LGBT film festival circuit, Gayby officially opens Oct. 12 in New York and Oct. 26 in Los Angeles with expansion to follow. If the sexy new poster makes you pregnant with anticipation, get into the new theatrical trailer below.
