C.O.G. debuted at Sundance and more recently is was the opening movie at LA’s gay film festival, Outfest, but it’s only now that it’s bearing up for a September US release.
It’s the first tale by cult queer author David Sedaris’ to be turned into a movie (it’s based on an autobiographical short published in the 1998 collection Naked), and stars Jonathan Groff as a young man who plans a summer in the Northwest with his friend Jennifer (Troian Avery Bellisario). The plot thickens when Jennifer suddenly ditches him, causing him to go on a series of strange adventures. Corey Stoll, Dale Dickey, Denis O’Hare and Dean Stockwell co-star.
As you might guess, the take doesn’t hide away from issues of sexuality. It’ll be in US cinemas and iTunes on Sepetember 20th.
