Frameline40: 'Pushing Dead' & 'Jonathan' = Must-Sees

It's the final days for Frameline40 and I'm catching two movies this weekend at the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival.

The enthusiastic audience response to the two screenings of the San Francisco set gentrification drama "Pushing Dead," starring local activist and acting icon Danny Glover, is getting a third showing. It plays tonight at the Victoria Theater at 9:15 pm and I've heard only positive buzz about this film.

After watching the trailer for "Jonathan" from Germany, reveling in its camerawork and big compositions, I put it on my must-see list. A few deets from the program:

"Gorgeous cinematography, a bucolic German setting, and director Piotr Lewandowski’s lyrical storytelling style make 'Jonathan' a uniquely sumptuous visual experience—and illuminate a tale about family, romantic love, and bittersweet regret."

Catch it on Sunday at 4 pm at the Castro Theater. More info on these and all events - tix, times, film synopses - at Frameline40, click here and get to the festival this weekend!
