“One of the very best narrative features at Sundance this year.”

Coming from Wolfe Video

Pit Stop

 

 

In this perfectly crafted American drama, openly gay Ernesto (Marcus DeAnda) and closeted Gabe (Bill Heck) grapple with the sad tribulations of being gay in a small, working-class Texas town. This Sundance smash is an uplifting love story about male intimacy, the heartache of unsuccessful relationships and the transformative power of love.

Reminiscent of such classic rural gay love stories as Big Eden and Brokeback Mountain — and showcasing equally accomplished performances from its handsome leads — Pit Stop achieves an understated tone of authenticity rarely seen on screen as it shows us a tender, beautiful slice of gay American life.
