The Great Outdoors August Gay-themed Film and Discussion Night: "Were the World Mine"
In this gay variation of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream which mixes romantic yearning, music, humor, and fantasy, Tanner Cohen plays bullied small-town high-school student Timothy, who finds a way to make the man of his dreams – rugby team captain Nathaniel David Becker – fall in love with him. But it doesn't stop there. By the time the Puck-playing teenager is done using a purple flower – for better or for worse, a purple pansy – to (quite literally) spray gay love onto his fellow small-town denizens, a good chunk of the populace has gone same-sex oriented. Yet Timothy is reminded that that may not be the best way to experience true love. Were the World Mine was the Jury Prize winner at Los Angeles' Outfest and the Audience Award winner at the Turin International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.
