Burning Blue Brings A "Brokeback Mountain"-Style Story To The DADT-Era

Originally a critically-acclaimed Off-Broadway play, Burning Blue is bringing the story of two Navy pilots who fall in love back in the Old Days of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." 

According to a press release: 

They have been trained to meet danger head-on, to execute vital strategic maneuvers while flying at breathtaking speeds. But after a series of fatal accidents, a close-knit squadron of male Navy pilots begins to splinter—and becomes the focus of a criminal investigation. As a government agent digs to uncover the cause of the accidents, two of the pilots engage in a secret, forbidden relationship. Their affair is exposed…and the squadron is engulfed by an incendiary scandal that will challenge each pilot’s notions of friendship, love, honor and courage.

Burning Blue will release in select U.S. theaters and VOD on June 6.

And france too...

I saw this on stage in London years ago; though not perfect it was a thought provoking play. The movie should be interesting, especially as things have changed since the play was first produced. Hope DVD is released in UK.

Hope DVD is released in USA, too.

Please make the videos available in South Africa too :(
