NOTES

Title from title frames

A fresh take on the coming-of-age story, this surreal tale follows the artistically driven Oscar (*American Crime*’s Connor Jessup) hovering on the brink of adulthood. Struggling to find his place in the world after a rough childhood and haunted by images of a tragic incident, Oscar dreams of escaping his small town. After he meets a mysterious and attractive new co-worker, Oscar follows the guidance of his pet hamster Buffy (voiced by Isabella Rossellini) and faces his demons to find the life he wants. Nominated for the LGBTQ Film of the Year by the **Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association**. Winner of Best Canadian Feature Film at the **Toronto International Film Festival**. *"One way to tell a promising director is by the acting in his or her film, and the performances in CLOSET MONSTER are solid all the way around, no matter how small the role." - G. Allen Johnson, **San Francisco Chronicle***
