A release date for Billy Porter and Luke Evans’ new drama Our Son has finally been announced. Directed by Bill Oliver, the film follows Nicky (Evans) and Gabriel (Porter), a gay married couple, as they go through a messy divorce and custody battle over their eight-year-old son Owen.
The official synopsis reads: “Nicky, a book publisher devoted to his work, lives with his husband Gabriel, a former actor and stay-at-home dad, and their eight-year-old son Owen.
Gabriel loves Own more than anything; Nicky loves Gabriel more than anything. “Despite appearances, Gabriel has been dissatisfied with their marriage for some time and files for divorce, leading to a custody battle that forces both of them to confront the changing reality of their love for each other and for their son.” In June, Our Son had its world premiere at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
The LGBTQIA+ drama received universal acclaim from critics, with many praising its turbulent yet moving story and the heartfelt performances from Porter and Evans.
