Regent Releasing presents TRU LOVED, opening Friday, October 31, 2008, at Landmark’s Lumiere Theatre in San Francisco, and Rialto Cinemas Elmwood in Berkeley.
Writer/Director Stewart Wade’s TRU LOVED, tells the story of Tru (Najarra Townsend), a 16-year-old high school student from San Francisco, who is uprooted from her gay-friendly home by her lesbian moms (Alexandra Paul and Cynda Williams) and moved away â€“ not only from San Fran but also from her gay dads â€“ to a new, decidedly more conservative neighborhood in suburban Southern California. Her non-traditional family makes her a bit of an outsider â€“ until high school football hero and BMOC Lodell (Matthew Thompson) takes a liking to her.
However, Lo is actually gay and closeted. And in Tru he finds a friend with whom he can really be himself, though still afraid to do the same with his mom (Jasmine Guy), feisty grandmother (Nichelle Nichols) and closest pals. Tru reluctantly agrees to cover for Lo as his girlfriend.
But, when Tru sees and hears the closed-minded comments about homosexuality from her new group of “friends,” she takes a bold step: Together with openly gay student Walter (Tye Olson) she lays the groundwork to start a Gay-Straight Alliance club at her new school. Through the GSA, she meets Trevor (Jake Abel), a smart and charming young man â€“ raised by his gay uncle Daniel (Bruce Vilanch) â€“ with whom she becomes smitten. Torn between her commitment to her best friend, and her attraction to and connection with Trevor, Tru must look into her heart, take what she has learned from her close-knit family about love, friendship, honesty and trust, and sort it outâ€¦all without hurting someone â€“ possibly herself â€“ in the process.
“Finally! A film that brings to life the phenomenon of Gay-Straight Alliance clubs sweeping through our nation’s schools, where straight allies stand alongside LGBT youth to fight for equality and acceptance. GSA Network is thrilled to partner with ‘Tru Loved’ because it will not only entertain audiences, but will inspire us all to do the right thing.” – Carolyn Laub, Founder and Executive Director Gay-Straight Alliance Network
