FEATURE | Modern Love: Alternative Sexual Orientation in 21st Century Cinema

Film Set - 'Love Is Strange'

‘The depiction of gay relationships on-screen is in constant flux. As society grows, so does TV and cinema, and with it the number of extremely interesting, complex issues and engaging characters we’re treated to – gay or straight.

The most recent example is Love is Strange, which boasts extraordinary performances from John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as two lovers, and the film does a grand job at portraying their relationship. But it’s a movie that couldn’t have existed without the bravery and invention of what has come before; since the start of the millennium, the modern perspective on sexual orientation has offered a huge number of subjects, circumstances and personalities to delve into – although they may still be considered a niche by some.

What are the must-see films since the year 2000 that defy such categorisation?’
