It’s 1950, and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks. There’s just one problem: Both Bob and Norma are gay, and have married each other’s partners as a carefully constructed cover. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement, madcap classic sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two “All-American” couples are forced to stare down the closet door.

Moonlight and Magnolias
The year is 1939 and legendary Hollywood producer David O. Selznick has a problem. He has just fired the director of Gone with the Wind, and the script needs to be rewritten for the umpteenth time. He needs a new director and a new writer - NOW. However, the director he wants, Victor Fleming, is working on The Wizard of Oz, and the writer he wants, Ben Hecht, has never read the novel. Selznick decides that the only way to get it all done is to lock the doors, close the shades, and - while on a diet of just bananas and peanuts - the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time. Loosely based on a true story, it’s a hilarious homage to the men behind the American movie classic.
