The Outfest Film Festival on July 21 will see the premiere of "White Frog," described as "a universal story of the power of family, friendship, and love." Twilight's Booboo Stewart, Glee's Harry Shum, Jr., and Teen Wolf's Tyler Posey costar in this emotional family drama directed by veteran filmmaker Quentin Lee.
Nick Young (Booboo Stewart) is a high school freshman struggling with mild Asperger’s Syndrome. He idolizes his perfect older brother Chaz Young (Harry Shum Jr.) who dies when riding his bike on the highway while a group of guys were driving recklessly. Nick's friends attend the funeral and help him get through his loss. Randy tells Nick how his brother spent, "his whole life trying to keep up this lie that you were a perfect family." Chaz had a secret dream, he went to a "community center" and wanted to be a dancer.
"It's about how these secrets transform him and also lead him to new friendships," Lee says.
The film, which costars Joan Chen and B.D. Wong, marks Lee's third film at Outfest, L.A.'s LGBT film festival. He is grateful for the support. "Outfest is important because it gives me an important segment of the audience for the film, which is the LGBT audience we wouldn't get at another festival." Lee also states his intention to incorporate a gay character into every film he makes. "I think it's very important. I came from a political background and it's how I started to make films. It's just part of me."
Lustralboy supports Lee's intention. Visibility brings understanding breeds acceptance, we firmly believe.
