The Great Outdoors February Gay-themed Film and Discussion Night: "Making Love"
Zack (Michael Ontkean), a successful doctor, is married to Claire (Kate Jackson), an equally successful television producer. Eight years into their marriage, Zack meets Bart (Harry Hamlin), a gay writer, and the more he gets to know Bart, the more he is attracted to him. As one thing leads to another, Zack realizes he must be honest with Claire about his desire to explore a relationship with Bart.
