PC Movies

PC MOVIES….Given its well known “gay cowboy” theme, you’d think that Brokeback Mountain would be a shoo-in for most PC movie of the year. But I have another candidate. Marian and I saw The Family Stone this afternoon, and Tyrone Giordano plays a character who is deaf (the whole family signs, natch), gay, in an interracial relationship, and planning to adopt a baby. And just for good measure, Diane Keaton plays a character who’s dying from breast cancer.

That’s PC.
