Closet MonsterBy Strand Releasing
A fresh take on the coming-of-age story, this surreal tale follows the artistically driven Oscar ("American Crime" star Connor Jessup), who is hovering on the brink of adulthood. Struggling to find his place in the world after a rough childhood and haunted by images of a tragic incident, Oscar dreams of escaping his small town. After he meets a mysterious and attractive new co-worker, Oscar follows the guidance of his pet hamster Buffy (voiced by Isabella Rossellini) and faces his demons to find the life he wants.
Reasons to Buy
- Connor Jessup is a star on the rise. Not only is he sensational in this film, but he played a similar sexually-conflicted character to great acclaim on ABC's "American Crime".
- Closet Monster originally premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it won the award for Best Canadian Feature. The film was also announced as part of TIFF's annual "Canada's Top Ten" screening series of the ten best Canadian films of the year.
- Well-acted, gorgeously crafted and gripping from start to finish, this is a riveting and unique tack on the traditional "coming out" and "coming-of-age" story.
