Don’t Bring Scott, (USA; 28 Minutes) is a personal documentary portrait that investigates the roots of homophobia in the American family and its reinforcement via religion and society. When David’s working class parents celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary without inviting his partner, this All-American, rural family of three generations is dragged into the 21st century.
