from TLA Releasing, opens August 14. SAY UNCLE was shown at MGLFF this
past April. About The Film: A comical clash of suspicion, fear, and
misunderstanding in this "not-quite-black" comedy marks the directorial debut of
Peter Paige (Showtime's "Queer as Folk"). Starring Peter Paige, Kathy Najimy,
Anthony Clark, Jim Ortlieb with Gabrielle Union and Melanie Lynskey.
Portland-based artist Paul Johnson (Peter Paige), who happens to be gay, returns
from his telemarketing job one day to some very distressing news - his closest
friends, the Fabers, are moving to Japan, and they're taking Paul's two year-old
godson Morgan with them. Shifting into serious denial mode, Paul misses their
final departure, but ultimately faces the truth that the Fabers are gone and
aren't coming back .When Paul's friend Russell (Anthony Clark) convinces him to
“get back out in the world,” Paul ventures out to play with some kids at the
local playground. Inspired to find creative ways to maintain the youthful
exuberance he feels, Paul begins to explore every opportunity that might afford
him contact with children: working in a toy store, babysitting, advertising
himself as a nanny (aka "manny"), even considering adoption. Watching Paul's
natural, playful chemistry with the children, one local mother, Maggie Butler
(Kathy Najimy), wonders who this amazing "Super Dad" is. Upon further
investigation, she determines that maybe Paul is up to no good and decides to
rally her neighbors to take action.
