Ahead of the film’s world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, a slew of new I Am Michael images from director Justin Kelly’s upcoming drama have been released. Based on a true story, the film stars James Franco as gay activist Michael Glatze, who went on to reject his homosexuality and become a Christian pastor. It’s heavy subject matter for sure, but the cast is solid—Zachary Quinto, Emma Roberts, and Daryl Hannah also star—and Gus Van Sant shepherded the project as an executive producer, so I’m curious to see how Kelly’s feature debut comes together. I’ll be personally checking it out at Sundance this weekend, so look for my review here on the site in the coming days.
Check out the new I Am Michael images below. The film also stars Charlie Carver.
Here’s the logline for the film:
