The Rev (GBR 2021)

© 1


Once, Neil Marlow's life was a spontaneous festival of frivolity, friends and funk music. Now, it's one of old age pensioners, weekly bingo and ready-meals. Neil Marlow (a.k.a. ‘The Rev’), has chosen a life of the cloth above a life of liberalism and like so many before him he is convinced that his sexuality and extroverted personality is incompatible with his religious beliefs. This is the story of that struggle. The struggle of repression and rejection, of the vain attempt to leave a part of himself behind in the belief that he will somehow be happier if he inhibits his true self.
