    If you love great gay flicks like Philadelphia, Brokeback Mountain, and Finding Nemo among others, Then this classic dramedy about a gay boy's party The Boys in the Band is one classic flick to remember. From the Director of The French Connection & The Exorcist. And based on the hit play by Matt Crowley.
