Special preview screening of this highly collaborative feature

Elliot Page returns to the big screen in this unassuming, gentle, and sincerely heartfelt romantic drama. Close to You marks his first fiction film since 2017’s Flatliners remake, and co-stars Hillary Baack (Sound of Metal). Director Dominic Savage granted Page and Baack carte blanche to improvise significantly throughout the film; a naturalistic approach that allows the film to be consistent with the authentic, everyday language used by trans people and those in deaf/hard-of-hearing communities.

Close to You lingers in the realm of the personal, exploring contentious family dynamics, feelings of loneliness, displacement, and reconciling with the self. It feels profoundly threaded with Page’s own experiences, and reflective of where he’s at entering this new phase of his career.

We are thrilled Close to You will serve as our closing night film at Queer Vision 2024, and can’t wait to hear your thoughts during our post-screening discussion in the cafe/bar. This very special preview will also feature descriptive subtitles and BSL-interpretation for the introduction/discussion – hosted by David Ellington in partnership with Deaf Conversations About Cinema.
