Winner, Best Feature — Newfest (New York Lesbian & Gay Film Festival)
Bobby Riley (Pete Jones) is just a regular guy who loves his family, his beer, and the Chicago Cubs. Oh yeah, and his boyfriend. A uniquely enjoyable comedy for all audiences, this charming ensemble film looks at what happens when Bobby finally tells his Irish-Catholic brothers (one of whom is a priest) that he’s gay. And, they think he’s joking!
OUTING RILEY is the second film from Chicago native, Pete Jones, winner of the first season of “Project Greenlight.” Michael McDonald from “MadTV” plays Bobby’s boyfriend Andy and Nathan Fillion (“Castle,” SERENITY, “Desperate Housewives”) plays his wise-ass brother Luke. OUTING RILEY also stars Julie Pearl, Stoney Westmoreland, and Chicago radio personality Steve Dahl.
