About Gun Hill Road

Year Released:
In Celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month: Many Backgrounds, Many Stories…One American Spirit, we present an encore screening of last year’s Gun Hill Road, with lead actor Esai Morales. The film follows Enrique (Morales) as he returns home from a three-year stint in prison, only to find his son beginning a sexual transformation and his wife trying to hide an emotional affair. Torn between his love for his family and his ideas about manhood, Enrique must come to terms with the changing times and forces that may tear his family apart. The film won the Grand Jury Nominee at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. (HD Cam presentation)
