  • Breakfast with Scot

    2007. Canada. Directed by Laurie Lynd. Screenplay by Sean Reycraft, based on the novel by Michael Downing. With Tom Cavanaugh, Ben Shenkman, Noah Bernett, Graham Greene. This beguiling gender comedy set in a rapidly gentrifying Toronto neighborhood features Sam, a former hockey player turned sportscaster, and Ed, a lawyer, as a not-so-out gay couple. After his sister's sudden death, Ed is left to watch over his nephew, Scot, until the boy's father can be found. Sam and Ed argue as they prepare for Scot's arrival, but the boy is not quite the young man they expected. This may be the first film about a gay athlete to be supported by a major sports franchise, the Toronto Maple Leafs. 95 min.
