An Englishman at Tribeca
My film debut, An Englishman in New York, will premiere monday night at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival. Richard Laxton's An Englishman in New York, which is a smart, sensitive drama that reveals the wild and dark days of gay culture in the pivotal era surrounding the outbreak of the AIDS crisis. John Hurt reprises the role of English writer, Quentin Crisp, and is joined by Cynthia Nixon, Denis O'Hare, Jonathan Tucker, and Swoosie Kurtz in an important film that paints a picture of Crisp's life in New York City in the early 80's.
