This critically acclaimed, coming-of-age drama follows three teenagers from a religious community in South Carolina as they come to terms with separating from each other and embarking on their new lives after high-school graduation. There's the devout Laura, openly gay Tim (who is anxious to start film school in New York), and Brea who is undergoing a deep crisis of faith. One of the best of a recent spate of dramas observing American Christian life, The Wise Kids features an impressive ensemble cast and a sympathetic depiction of the conflict between sexuality and religion. This Lock Up Your Daughters screening will be introduced by LGBT Youth Scotland and followed by a panel discussion to celebrate LGBT History Month. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Youth Film Festival.
