Set in Texas in the mid 80s, Yen Tan’s searing 1985 sees Cory Michael Smith (Carol) as Adrian Lester, a closeted ad exec returning home to Dallas after several years living his truth in New York City to visit his conservative – but he struggles to disclose his heart-breaking secret.

Co-starring Virginia Madsen (Candyman, Sideways) and Michael Chiklis, 1985 premiered at SXSW and picked up the Grand Jury Prize. Since, the film has won many accolades, sweeping the board at queer festivals like Outfest and Queer Palm Festival.
