Hide Your Love Away


It's been nearly a year since I saw Glenn Ficarra and John Requa's I Love You Phillip Morris at its Sundance premiere. It's a funny, touching, and constantly surprising tale of true crime and gay romance starring Jim Carrey (in one of his better recent performances) and Ewan McGregror, playing his doe-eyed cellblock lover. The thing hasn't yet found distribution*, probably -- no, definitely -- because of its frank depictions of gay sex and intimacy. You can catch it at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, where it's two screenings -- Jan, 14 and 15 -- should be met by an appreciative desert mix of gays and geezers. * Good news, and my bad -- it has! Consolidated Pictures scooped it up in May, and it's scheduled for a March release. [Jim Carrey Online]
