With the approach of fall it’s time to make like a squirrel and start stockpiling an arsenal of entertainment to keep us satiated during what everyone is saying is going to be a long, brutal winter[1]. On the gay-movie front there’s a handful of great new additions on Netflix instant streaming. I’ve rounded up some of the best that have popped up lately, including Tom Ford’s sensational A Single Man[2], the sexy 

Check out my picks below, with trailers to boot.

Beginners[3]: “Oliver, a graphic artist, is coming to grips with the imminent death of his father, who, at 75, has one last secret: He’s gay. Inspired and confused by his father’s determination to find true love at last, Oliver tentatively pursues his own romance.” (Available September 16th)

Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement[4]: “After four decades of lesbian partnership, Edie and Thea are finally able to achieve their dream of being married in this intimate bio-documentary.”

Getting Go: The Doc Project[5]: “A shy college grad devises to shoot a documentary about the New York City nightlife scene to meet the go-go guy he’s obsessed with.”

A Single Man[2]: “This stream-of-consciousness drama centers on a day in the life of a gay college professor who’s reeling from his longtime lover’s recent death.”

Test[6]: “As the newest member of an exciting contemporary dance company in San Francisco, young Frankie navigates gay life in the big city.”

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow[7]: A married man has a gay reawakening, while his sexy sister—conflicted about her impending marriage—dumps her wimpy fiancé at a grocery store.
