Sam (Alan Cumming) is an angry middle-aged gay man. He is angry at a number of things, but mostly he is angry because nobody seems angry anymore. Sam was a warrior during the AIDS crisis, a front-line activist who lost many loved ones along the way. For Sam, the battle continues through compiling a video memorial to his friend William. When Sam begins an affair with Braeden, a much younger man, the battlefront moves to what he sees as the apathy and ingratitude of a fragmenting new community. Sam is reaching his boiling point and demanding answers! Does one continue to berate the world for having moved on, or is it time for a victory lap of a life well lived? AFTER LOUIE is a smart, erotic, and unflinching look at the gay community’s passing of the mantle. Who redraws the battlefronts and who will take up arms when progress is threatened? AFTER LOUIE ponders this with heart, wit, and a quietly cautionary tone. —C.R.
