This month, Newfest, is presenting the film Every Act of Life, as part of their 30th Annual LGBT Film Festival.

About the film:

Playwright Terrence McNally has redefined contemporary gay theater with an extraordinary body of work that includes The Ritz, Corpus Christi, Lips Together, Teeth Apart, and Love! Valour! Compassion!, to name just a few. But his life offstage has been just as fascinating, encompassing activism, addiction, romance, and the constant pursuit of artistic excellence. McNally shares his story onscreen with the help of friends and colleagues like Angela Lansbury, Rita Moreno, Nathan Lane, F. Murray Abraham, and many more, as captured by documentarian and NewFest alum Jeff Kaufman (THE STATE OF MARRIAGE).

Writer: Jeff Kaufman

Cast: Terrence McNally, Meryl Streep, Audra McDonald, Christine Baranski, Bryan Cranston, Patrick Wilson, Angela Lansbury, Rita Moreno

The film will be shown on October 29th at 6:00 pm at the SVA Theater in New York City.
