ATLFS Executive Director Chris Escobar will introduce the feature film "Closet Monster," starring "American Crime's" Connor Jessup, on Tuesday, October 5th at 9:15 PM.
A fresh take on the coming-of-age story, this surreal tale follows the artistically driven Oscar ("American Crime's" Connor Jessup) hovering on the brink of adulthood. Struggling to find his place in the world after a rough childhood and haunted by images of a tragic incident, Oscar dreams of escaping his small town. After he meets a mysterious and attractive new co-worker, Oscar follows the guidance of his pet hamster Buffy (voiced by Isabella Rossellini) and faces his demons to find the life he wants.
