If you’re looking to expand your at-home gay film collection, three new fall DVD releases are sure to fit in perfectly to your compilation.  All three movies have had previous stints at Philadelphia’s own QFest, and two of the three films are produced by Breaking Glass Pictures, located here in the city of brotherly love.

·      I Do, featuring Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Alicia Witt, Maurice Compte, and Grant Bowler, was released on DVD on September 3, 2013.  The film, written by one of its stars, David Ross, centers around a gay Brit, Jack, living in New York who marries his lesbian best friend to avoid deportation.  However, things get increasingly complicated when I.C.E. agents begin to investigate the marriage and when Jack meets the love of his life, a Spanish U.S. citizen.  Produced by Breaking Glass Pictures, the DVD, which retails at $24.99, includes two hours of bonus features.

·      Breaking Glass Pictures also presents Aleksandr’s Price, starring writer/director Pau Maso, which has a DVD release date of September 24, 2013.  The film centers on Aleksandr, an illegal Russian immigrant living in New York.  After the tormented death of his mother, he turns to escorting and the sex trade in order to survive both fiscally and mentally.  Other cast members include Josh Berresford, Anatoli Grek, Samantha Glovin, and Keith Dougherty.  The $24.99 DVD features interviews with the stars and deleted footage.

·      Turtle Hill, Brooklyn, presented by Will Pork Productions and Believe Limited, has an October 1, 2013 DVD release and will retail for $26.99.  The film, which is written by its stars Brian Seibert and Ricardo Valdez, focuses on gay couple Will and Mateo who throw a birthday party for Will.  When unexpected guests arrive, including Will’s conservative sister, secrets about the couple’s relationship are exposed that threaten its very existence.  Ariel Bonilla, Michael Edmund, Rachel Valdati, Maryll Butula, and Deirdre MacNamara round out the cast.
