Called a smart and sophisticated film about life in a post-marriage-equality world by the San Francisco Chronicle, and Engrossing by Variety, The Green tells the story of a teacher at a Connecticut private high school, who thinks he can live a simple, harmonious domestic existence with his partner Daniel, a locavore caterer. Seemingly more concerned with the minutiae of suburban life than he is about challenging the bias he experiences in the provincial, recession-weary Yankee bastion, Michael adheres to an unspoken survival code: Don t speak up, don t make trouble. But Michael s world is turned upside-down when he is accused of engaging in inappropriate behavior with a male student, who runs away from home leaving behind his financially-strapped mother and her mercenary boyfriend to capitalize on the school s culpability in the alleged affair. With his job, relationship, and freedom in jeopardy, Michael must confront the suspicions of his co-workers, the latent homophobia of his friends and neighbors, and Daniel s doubts about his partner s innocence after the investigation reveals a secret from his past.
