PRIDE Movie Screening & Book Discussion: Wild About Harry
Join producer James Egan for a screening about the film Wild About Harry, followed by a book signing of A Golden Retriever & His Two Dads: An Adventure on Cape Cod by author Dan Perdios.
Set in 1973 and inspired by the true-life events of co-writer and director Gwen Wynne, Wild About Harry tells the story of the havoc that is wreaked in a teenage girl’s life when she discovers her widowed father is gay. Alternately funny and heartbreaking, the film captures the homophobia of the time set against a backdrop of small-town America on Cape Cod. The film utilizes emblematic music expressing the artistic and experimental freedom of the early 70s.
We will be joined by James Egan, producer of the film, and his husband Dan Perdios, author of A Golden Retriever and His Two Dads: An Adventure on Cape Cod, which chronicles working on the set of Wild About Harry, with a special guest appearance by Willy the Golden Retriever!
