Our son, Luke Evans and Billy Porter star a gay divorce and custody battle

Our son, about a divorcing gay couple fight over the custody of their 8-year-old son, was initially premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.

Directed by Bill Oliver, the film follows Nicky (Luke Evans), a book publisher devoted to his work, lives with his husband Gabriel (Billy Porter), a former actor and stay-at-home dad, and their eight year-old son, Owen (Christopher Woodley).

Gabriel loves Owen 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.

The movie builds some poignancy once it tightens its focus on Nicky, first in a lovely interlude with Owen at Coney Island and then alone, as he reaches a heartbreaking decision and eventually makes peace with it.
