Burning Blue, the new drama from writer-director DMW Greer, recounts an illicit affair tween two male Navy pilots in the era of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. If that sounds a little Top Gun meets Brokeback Mountain, you should know the film is based on Greer’s 1992 off-Broadway play of the same name.

Lionsgate is distributing the film, which boasts a pretty impressive cast, including  Trent Ford (Gosford Park), Morgan Spector (Boardwalk Empire), Rob Mayes (The Client List) and Tammy Blanchard (Life with Judy Garland).

Burning Blue lands in theaters and on VOD on June 6.
