This Special Friendship

This Special Friendship

Made in 1964, ‘This Special Friendship’ is one of the earliest films to feature strongly implied gay themes among young characters. Based on a novel by Roger Peyrefitte, the film is set within a rigid Catholic school for boys, which is unexpectedly rife with sexual tension. An artifact of a bygone era, it’s a fascinating look at gay-themed cinema before the concept really existed.
