#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – All of Greenleaf, Indiana is watching this year’s telecast of the Oscars as Hollywood heartthrob and local boy made good Cameron Drake has been nominated for his first ever Best Actor Oscar for his latest movie role as a gay soldier. Cameron’s high school English teacher Howard Brackett is overjoyed when Cameron wins the award and mentions Howard’s contribution in his acting life. That joy turns to horror when Cameron mentions to the worldwide audience that Howard is gay, especially horrific to Howard as he is engaged to fellow teacher Emily Montgomery, a woman with self-esteem issues as she had battled weight issues most of her life before she lost seventy-five pounds for the wedding. Howard’s life is totally disrupted as Hollywood media descends on Greenleaf in order to get Howard’s story. The rest of Greenleaf also openly wonders if Howard is indeed gay, as he exhibits many stereotypical gay tendencies, such as being neat, and loving music, dancing, poetry and Barbra Streisand. His cause is not helped in that his and Emily’s relationship has not yet been consummated. The one person not concerned is Emily, who trusts Howard. As Howard continues to deny being gay to his family, friends and colleagues, he begins to examine himself hypercritically if only because if others believe he’s gay, there may be some merit to the claim, as well as because of an incident that occurs with Hollywood reporter Peter Malloy, who is doing a week-long piece on Howard leading up to his and Emily’s wedding. But Cameron Drake may be able to provide some overall perspective to what is happening to Howard and the frenzy he has caused.
Plot: A midwestern teacher questions his sexuality after a former student makes a comment about him at the Academy Awards.

Hilarious depiction of prejudice against homosexuals
In & Out starring Kevin Kline, Tom Selleck and the town of Greenleaf, Indiana is a movie about homosexuality………and the way we think about it(at least in an exaggerated kind of way)….
Kline is excellent as the teacher who has a hard time coming out and being truthfull to his soon-to-be wife Cusack. Selleck gives a good performance as the TV-reporter who tries to make Kline come out about his homosexuality, being gay himself knowing that denial isn’t the right answer…. What’s so funny about the movie is some of the prejudices the people from Greenleaf cherish…..apparently you’re gay if you own a Barbara Streisand collection (and no! She was not too old to do Yentl!) and you’re apparently also gay if you ride a bicylce!
The movie is a wonderful example of taking on prejudice and doing it in an extremely funny way….hilarious! The end where Kline is finally true to himself and afterwards rewarded by the town and his students is predictable but nevertheless compliments a good movie…
Hilarioius and humane, this gay-themed film is a winner on all accounts
Howard (Kevin Kline) teaches English at the high school in a small Indiana city. He is finally getting married to Emily (Joan Cusack), much to his parents delight. The town is abuzz, too, because one of its own, Cameron (Matt Dillon) has been nominated for an acting Oscar. Everyone, including Howard and Emily, is watching the Academy Awards on television as Cameron is declared the winner! In his acceptance speech, Cameron announces that he was able to fulfill his role as a gay military man, in part, because of lessons he learned from a gay teacher he had in high school. You guessed it, its Howard! But, Howard has never “come out”; in fact, he believes he is straight! With the whole town, and members of the media, waiting and observing the happenings, will Howard and Emily go ahead and get married? Or, is Howard truly gay and realize he can not go through with the ceremony? This is a wonderful, funny, and humane film about a gay man and his situation. As the man-who-did-not-realize-he-was-gay, Kline is excellent and touching. The rest of the cast is equally fine, with Cusack a stitch as the mixed-up fiancé and Dillon, Bob Newhart, Debbie Reynolds, Tom Selleck, and others on hand to delight the audience as well. The costumes are very nice and the setting in the lovely Indiana heartland is beautiful. Then, too, the script, the direction, and the production are very, very nice. But, the insightful, humorous, and the thoughtful look at the gay population is the film’s best asset, no doubt. For those who would be offended by a gay-themed film, yes, just skip over this one. But, for everyone who wants to laugh heartily, and gain a better understanding of the gay situation at the same time, this is definitely the best film out there.
