Joseph Graham's BEAUTIFUL SOMETHING Opens in New York & LA This May


Ariztical Entertainment has announced the May 6th theatrical release of Joseph Graham's BEAUTIFUL SOMETHING. Following an acclaimed year on the LGBT festival circuit, the film will play for a week in New York and Los Angeles ahead of a May 17th digital and cable VOD release. Beautiful Something follows four men on their interlocking searches for sex, art, love, and identity within the City of Brotherly Love.

From writer-director Joseph Graham (Strapped), Beautiful Something stars Brian Sheppard, Colman Domingo (Selma, AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead"), Zack Ryan and John Lescault. Directing his smoldering cast with conviction in a moody, nighttime palette, Graham presents a film with a lot of male skin, but also a lot of heart, as it explores centuries-old questions about mixing up love with art.

In one desperate night, four disparate gay men cruise Philadelphia in pursuit of ever-elusive human connection. Brian (Sheppard), a poet with an already-spent advance and a looming deadline, seeks distraction at dusk-whether that means a hook-up (or two) or confessing his love to his straight best friend. Drew (Domingo), a renowned sculptor in love with his boyish muse, is eager to finish his latest creation. His model Jim (Ryan) is an unpredictable aspiring actor prone to dramatic outbursts. Simultaneously aroused and intimidated by Drew's talent and devotion, Jim yearns for a modicum of freedom from the sculptor's attentions. Rounding out the quartet is Bob (Lescault), a wealthy, alcoholic talent agent, cruising the Philadelphia backstreets for a "beautiful something." Despite his aimlessness, he usually finds his target.
