Out! Takes place at the dinner table between the Mother and the son, with a noticeable gap at the table. It revolves around what was said, what wasn’t said and then finally with the son coming out. It also puts straight into the open homophobia, or perceived homophobia, and how a mother always knows.
It covers family relationships, the fear of rejection and the desire for acceptance.
Funny line ‘I didn’t like curry until I tried it’
For me what makes the movie interesting is the interaction between the mother and son, it almost is a re-enactment of the typical Irish matriarchial mother.
‘Anyone that you want to bring here to this house is welcome, so long as they respect you and treat you well’
the film ends with a laugh (if not a downright snigger) – you will enjoy this movie, and I would rate it 4.5 out of 5.
