Trailer for the film AT EASE directed by Ryan Slattery.
A young Naval Aviator, Kevin, is killed in action just days before he was to be discharged under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." When his partner, Tyler, arrives at his funeral unexpectedly, his father, Bill, finds out more than he wants to know about his son. Throughout their encounter, Bill wrestles with his own prejudices as Tyler tries to tell the truth about his son and their relationship. But, as Tyler finds out, the truth has consequences in a military that does not welcome gays and lesbians openly into their ranks. They represent the tens of thousands of brave men and women who daily fight for freedom, yet have none themselves.
DJ Smolinsky gives a breakout performance as LTJG Tyler Holland, a young man who was forced to hide in the shadows until the unthinkable happened. Robert Schwalbach commands the screen as Bill McConnell, Kevin's lonely and bigoted father. Written and directed by Ryan Slattery, AT EASE is narrative of the prejudice and hypocrisy that has pervaded the United States military throughout its existence.
Written and Directed by Ryan Slattery; Produced by Steven Demarco and Ryan Slattery; Executive Producers Sean Slattery and Stephen Hendrickson; Director of Photography Brynmore Williams; Music by Kevin MacLeod.
