About The Boys in the Band

The Boys in the Band box art

From director William Friedkin comes this trailblazing 1970s drama about a close-knit group of gay friends' reunion at their pal's birthday party, where snippets from each person's life are revealed throughout the evening. But when the liquor begins flowing freely, and then a straight male guest arrives unexpectedly at the party, the gay men begin to show their true colors -- some of which are less than pretty. Leonard Frey stars.
