‘Patrik, Age 1.5’ explores gay couple’s unusual adoption

Patrik, Age 1.5

How do you say “Lifetime Television” in Swedish? The story told in “Patrik, Age 1.5” (“Patrik 1,5”), which debuted in last year’s Out on Film, is very familiar, but in most versions the principal couple is heterosexual. (“Breakfast with Scot” was a recent exception.)

Göran (Gustaf Skarsgård) and Sven (Torkel Petersson) are not hetero, and they’ve got the wedding rings to prove it. Oh, Sven was married to a woman once, and she brings their reluctant 16-year-old daughter around periodically to remind him.

Emotional ‘Watercolors’

Watercolors movie

Out on Film hosts an exclusive screening of the award-winning movie “Watercolors” March 24 at the Ansley Park Playhouse. This will be the only screening of the film in Atlanta, according to Out on Film Director Jim Farmer.

The organization, which hosts an LGBT film festival in Atlanta each October, is expanding its format from the annual festival to hosting screenings throughout the year.
“Our goal is going to be to do these year-round. This one is going to be really special because we have the writer/director of ‘Watercolors,’ David Oliveras, flying in from Los Angeles for this,” Farmer says.
