Product Description

{Winner! Best Documentary, Long Island Film Expo}
{Winner! Best Documentary, Cinhomo, Spain}
{Winner! 2nd Places Best Documentary, Kansas Int'l Film Festival}

"Out Late" is an inspirational and moving documentary about five individuals who made the courageous and life altering decision to come out as lesbian, gay, or transgender, after the age of 55.

Why did they wait until their 50's, 60's, or 70's to come out? And what was the turning point that caused each of them to openly declare their sexuality? From Canada to Florida, to Kansas, we explore what ultimately led these dynamic individuals to make the liberating choice to live openly and honestly amongst their family, friends and community, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

Review

Gives new meaning to 'better late than never'. A valuable film that could encourage young gays to live their lives without fear and secrets. --Joy Behar, Host of The Joy Behar Show, Co-Host of The View

I predict a straight audience will be attracted to this brilliant work, be instructed by it and recommend it to friends. I predict the GLBT folk will want this film to live -- well-- forever! --Phil Donahue

OUT LATE is a powerful documentary that reveals emotional, untold stories from a formerly silent generation. It's a liberating experience watching this well made film, for it teaches us that it's never too late to seize the day and live your life to its fullest. --Lauren Lazin, Executive Producer, MTV Networks

One of the BEST movies on Aging that I have seen since Pride in June 2014. And best of all, it talks about the Older Generation, those of us who have for years hid in Closets because we lived in the years when being a homosexual was considered to be a mental illness that could cause you to get electric shock or even frontal lobe surgery. And it is told by the real people who have come out of the closet after age 55. Wish I could give it TEN Stars.

The well meaning documentary "Out Late" covers a group of individuals whose stories might not ordinarily get told or explored. And yet, by no means, are the tales unique or isolated--just underrepresented. The five men and women featured in this hour long film all came to not only embrace the truth about their sexuality, but made the decision to come out and live openly despite their ages ranging between 57 and 79. Most had been married, had children, and lived full lives in some form of deception. They didn't have the openness, opportunities, and role models that we have today. But proving that it's never too late to be yourself, they have chosen to defy expectations and embrace the lives they were meant to live. It's hard not to take these lessons to heart and it is only through open expressions like this that the country's attitudes will continue to evolve in relationship to homosexual and transgendered issues. Some of the stories are impassioned, some exuberant, and some gently hopeful--but at only an hour, these are but brief insights into complicated lives.

The principles include:

Elaine: Came out at 79 in full celebration mode (seemingly inspired by the TV production The L-Word).
Ken: Came out at 72 for a chance at finding companionship.
Cathy: Came out at 57, after being in a 24 year same sex partnership, in opposition to unnecessary legislation.
Walter: Came out at 60, at church no less, and enjoying life in a solid and loving relationship.
Leanna: Transgendered at 60 after a life, including military service, in which femininity was longed for.

Each person gets approximately ten minutes of screen time with a brief introduction, a brief closing, and a primary interview section.

I thought l was a late bloomer at 50. I don't know that there is a better time to have come out but all is courageous. As in the film l wonder what it would have been like younger with family and friends. At my age l don't care so much and am just happy to have put the puzzle together and begin living as l am meant to be. Plenty of gay women sites to find friends and support. You would be surprized how many come out late. The film addresses so many issues in a possitive upbeat way!

I waited until my husband was out of reach before watching this documentary. I knew it would touch me in ways that he would only find baffling. I was impressed by the variety of people describing the complexities of their lives surrounding their "secrets." How painful it was for them to hide for so long, often leading seemingly straight lives for over 50 years and then coming to terms with the passage of time as well as the twists and turns of coming out to friends and family members who had known them for so many years without suspecting. It was heartbreaking for those who were never accepted by their families and I cried when one fellow explained that he wasn't even told about his mother's funeral because his step-sibling didn't want him to "cause trouble." So many films/TV series and so much literature is available about young people coming to terms with their sexuality and their identity awareness; it is wonderful that there is something out there to show the side of seasoned adults still learning about themselves and how they, too, are evolving with their newly embraced lifestyles. Bravo!

I felt rather bad for these people having to lead their lives in secrecy almost all their lives. Most " straight" people don't get it, they don't understand what it is like to live in a society that only sees black and white and is colored blind.

I love this documentary, i loved it so much that i saw the film on tv and had to order a dvd of it to add to my gay and lesbian section of dvds. Often times the gay community leaves out the elderly and as we all know if we lid]sten we can learn allot, they have been there and done that and are now in aw of the freedoms they never thought they would live to see, its an exciting documentary for anyone that cares.

Well done documentary illustrating some of the reasons and challenges experienced by LGBT people who came out after 55 years of age. The people who were interviewed seemed to do their best to be as honest as possible. That showed through the movie so credit also goes to how it was edited. It is interesting and a thoughtful study. Definitely worth watching.

Terrific movie. It is a story about men, woman and Trans who came Out of the closet AFTER the age of 55. Some older than others.
The movie follows the lives of 5 individual people from different places. Approx 10 minutes is spent on each individual. Heartfelt stories. One lucky person finally came out of the closet at the AGE of 79! I'm glad that I wasn't born in those times. A must see for anyone and everyone, who would like to get an in depth and personal look at the different life styles of the people.
