The Gymnast, 2006 Movie

If you’re looking for an excellent LGBT-themed movie to rent, I recommend The Gymnast, Ned Farr’s 2006 character study starring Dreya Weber and Addie Yungmee.

The Gymnast is one of those gems that plays at film festivals, wins several awards and then disappears.  That’s one of life’s injustices.

The two central characters, Jane and Serena, engage in introspection and learn through experience.  It’s a thinker’s film, besides being beautifully photographed.

The end credits note that The Gymnast is dedicated to David De Simone, who played Jane’s controlling husband.  He passed away soon after completing his work on the film.

The official trailer appears below.
