In & Out

Release Date Rewind

01-10-2022 • 1 hr 5 mins

Continuing September's Back to School Month theme, class is in session with Mark's new friend Derek Le Beau in this episode! Derek created the great, informative Instagram page Queer Cinema Archive, so it's only appropriate that the two chat about the popular 90s gay comedy In & Out for its 25th anniversary. The funny - but problematic - film starring a dancing Kevin Kline as teacher Howard Brackett was released in theaters on September 19, 1997 and got Joan Cusack a well deserved Oscar nomination. We ask ourselves does it hold up? Are some of the jokes cringey? How does it compare to other films featuring gay characters that came before it? Listen and learn!
