The accusation is all that matters.

The Green tells the story of a teacher at a Connecticut private high school, who thinks he can live a simple, harmonious domestic existence with his partner Daniel, a locavore caterer. Seemingly more concerned with the minutiae of suburban life than he is about challenging the bias he experiences in the provincial, recession–weary Yankee bastion, Michael adheres to an unspoken survival code: Don't speak up, don't make trouble. But Michael's world is turned upside–down when he is accused of engaging in "inappropriate behavior" with a male student, who runs away from home leaving behind his financially–strapped mother and her mercenary boyfriend to capitalize on the school's culpability in the alleged affair. With his job, relationship, and freedom in jeopardy, Michael must confront the suspicions of his co–workers, the latent homophobia of his friends and neighbors, and Daniel's doubts about his partner's innocence after the investigation reveals a secret from his past.

Reasons to Buy

  1. Jason Butler Harner, Cheyenne Jackson, Julia Ormond and Illeana Douglas deliver grounded, inspired performances.
  2. The filmmakers were very careful to cast only openly gay actors as the male leads.
  3. Jason Butler Harner and Cheyenne Jackson are known for their work on Broadway (and "Glee"), but The Green marks their breakthrough into the world of gay cinema.

To simply say this film is good would be an understatement. It exceeds the viewers expectation of how good it will be.

THE GREEN (to satisfy many people's quandary about the name) refers to the luxuriant fields and trees of Connecticut: in this film it represents the haven for escaping the chaos of New York City to the quiet and civilized country. Strike 'civilized',... Read More
