DVD/Blu-Ray/Video on Demand

Double Lover

In this darkly psychosexual, stylish feature from subversive, queer French director François Ozon (In The House), a former model, Chloe (Marine Vacth), has affairs with both her psychologist, Dr. Paul Meyer (Jérémie Renier), and the twin he keeps secret, Louis (also Renier). (DVD, Cohen Media Group)


Queer Eye: Season Two

The Fab 5—Antoni, Tan, Karamo, Bobby, and Jonathan—return to restore our faith in humanity as they help a new and more diverse batch of folks find their better selves, including a transgender man, a woman, and an Iranian-American. (June 15, Netflix)

Man in an Orange Shirt

Made to mark the 50th anniversary of when Britain decriminalized homosexual acts, this nuanced, supremely acted two-hour movie charts and contrasts the lives of gay men in both pre-and post-code eras. In the 1940s, lovers Michael (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) and Thomas (James McArdle), live under threat of jail if their affair is discovered, leading Michael to marry a woman, Flora (Joanna Vanderham). Picking up in the present, the second half sees the now elderly Flora (Vanessa Redgrave) as grandmother to a young gay man, Adam (Julian Morris), who faces his own struggles. Airing on PBS’s Masterpiece, the film will also become available on DVD June 19. (June 17, PBS)

Director of the Week: Derek Jarman

Trained as a painter, late U.K. director Derek Jarman created uncompromisingly queer, searingly original features before he died from AIDS in 1994. For Pride month, Filmstruck is featuring nine of them, including Isaac Julien’s essential 2008 documentary about Jarman’s life and work (and beloved garden, which remains open to the public), Derek, narrated by Jarman’s frequent star, friend, and muse, Tilda Swinton.
