Pit Stop

Directed by Yen Tan , Nominated for the John Cassavetes Award

Part of 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards Screenings

Pit Stop takes a subtle and eloquent approach in telling the parallel stories of two gay men in a small Texas town. There’s Gabe: a contractor who’s getting over an ill-fated affair with a married man and finds solace in the relationship he still harbors with his ex-wife and their daughter; and there’s Ernesto: a Hispanic lumberyard worker in the midst of splitting up with his live-in boyfriend as he receives news from the hospital that his former love is in a coma. At the end, when Gabe and Ernesto meet for a one-nighter–having endured all the struggles and heartbreaks, and wondering if they’ll ever find love again–they face the possibility that they might just be meant for each other. 2013, US, 80 minutes.
