Nate & Margaret in Chicago June 8
Another MUST SEE film this summer!
NATE AND MARGARET.
Nate & Margaret asks the question: What if your best friend was your only friend?
Prior to its DVD release coming in August, Nate & Margaret will play at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago (starting June 8).
Filmed in Chicago, Nate, a 19-year-old film student, and Margaret, a 52-year-old spinster with a coffee mug addiction, are best friends in an odd, quirky, totally working kind of way…until Nate’s audacious classmate Darla sets him up on a date with James. Nate’s new romance shakes up his friendship with Margaret, who goes off on her own to pursue her lifelong dream of being a stand-up comedian. As Nate and Margaret attempt to navigate their new lives apart, they come to realize just how important true friendship really is.
Starring noted television actor and theater performer Natalie West (“Roseanne”, Bushwhacked), Tyler Ross (The Wise Kids), and Gaby Hoffmann (200 Cigarettes, Now & Then), Nate & Margaret shows that age really does not matter in the grand scheme of life, love, and friendship. Directed and co-written by Nathan Adloff, star of Blackmail Boys, Nate & Margaret is a tale as old as time, but a fresh twist as a 21st century gay Harold and Maude.
The Breaking Glass DVD release will be loaded with special features including a behind the scenes featurette, deleted scenes, audition tapes, multiple audio and video commentaries with the director, producers, and writers, and the full version of “Untied Strangers”, a short film featured in Nate & Margaret.
