Films about drug addicted male hustlers is pretty much its a subgenre of queer cinema in its own right, and has been for many years. Now a new entry is coming in the form of Love in the Time of Civil War, which has screened at the likes of the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Alex is a young addict who sells his body in Montreal. He’s flanked by Bruno, Simon, Jeanne, Eric and Velma, all of them caught in the same spiral of compulsion. Hostage to society’s market logic, they are the fallen angels of a dark and violent time.’
Breaking Glass Pictures will release the movie in the US later this year. You can take a look at the trailer for the movie below.
