Director: Bryan Singer
Stars: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee…
Fun fact about the movie: Mike Myers plays Ray Foster in the film who complains about Bohemian Rhapsody saying that it’s not music that teenagers can bang their heads to. This is clearly a nod to ‘Wayne’s World’ where Mike Myers (who plays Wayne) is headbanging to Bohemian Rhapsody in the car.

Fun fact about the movie: By the time Garrard Conley’s memoir was released in 2016, only a handful of states had banned gay conversion therapy, those being Vermont, California, New Jersey, Illinois and Oregon, along with the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.).
