CORONAVIRUS: 05May21 UpdateAll UK venues closed on 16th March 2020. Many are planning to re-open by late May 2021 with some restrictions and possibly fully open from mid-June.
A film that only the French could get away with, The Closet
, hangs on a smart, if slender, idea. A colourless accountant in a condom factory is disliked by virtually everyone because he's so completely unexceptional. Contemplating suicide, he is persuaded to pretend he's gay to get the corporate, ultra-PC world he inhabits to respect him. It works and overnight the drab accountant is the darling of his Board of Directors. The most homophobic of them (Depardieu) even develops a genuine attraction. Making a comedy about someone coming out of a closet they were never in is a risky business but gay stereotypes are nicely punctured in this satisfying French confection.Performers Daniel Auteuil
, Gerard Depardieu
