Kyle Schickner’s new indie drama Steam had me at “it co-stars Ally Sheedy and Ruby Dee,” but made me a fan when Kate Siegel’s character says, “Mom, I’m a lesbian.”
I know it doesn’t sound funny, being out of context and all, but it cracked me up.
If you get the chance to see Steam at a film festival, please do. If you can’t find it there, take Mr. Media’s advice and request it in advance at Netflix or Blockbuster. It’s a sweet, satisfying little film with a great cast.
Speaking of its great cast, I’m delighted to welcome two of lead actresses from Steam—Ally Sheedy and Kate Siegel—to today’s show, as well as writer/director Kyle Schickner.
