New Job and The Circle
I liked how this went back and forth between the movie and the original people who the movie were portraying. I couldn't even imagine what it was like to be a gay man in the 1950's. I love that we are there when Ernst find this organization and is just over the moon. I know that feeling as when I came out at age 27 and actually started going to gay clubs and hanging with other gay men you really felt this comradery and an instead feeling of belonging. We got a peek into this world and how gays were treated in the world of the 1950's. Most cities it was illegal to be gay but in Zurich there was no such law and things were okay for the gays.. well for a short amount of time.
Watching movies like these make me realized how lucky we are as gay people in 2016, yes the world isn't 100% accepting but we are in a far better place today then we were 60 years ago... heck even 30 years ago. If you get a chance check out The Circle. I give it a solid A.
