PATRIK, AGE 1.5
Wednesday, April 28 at 7:30pm

$9 Members / $13 Public (Includes Reception)
No Refunds • Reception powered by V2 Vodka

After facing much discrimination in their quest to adopt a child, Swedish gay
couple Goran and Sven finally appear to be cleared to take possession of an
18-month-old boy named Patrik. However, due to a misplaced punctuation mark,
the “1.5-year-old” turns out to be 15—and a homophobe with a violent criminal record to boot. Patrik Age 1.5 is an intelligent
rumination on tolerance and understanding in a country that has been surprisingly slow to accept the idea of same-sex couple
adoption. Initially, all involved are displeased about the situation, especially Sven, who has also had his share of youthful
run-ins with the law. The couple eventually coax positive qualities out of Patrik that go deeper than the teen’s initial disgust.
With strong performances by all involved, Patrik Age 1.5 is a sensitive, quietly funny, and surprisingly affecting take on the
theme of a same-sex couple raising an adopted child. (Sweden, 2008, 100 mins)
