I AM MICHAEL Trailers, Clip, Images and Poster


Written and directed by Justin Kelly, the biopic "I Am Michael" tackles a controversial subject. The film is based on the true story of gay activist Michael Glatze, played by James Franco, who rejected his homosexuality following a traumatic event and started a journey of religious awakening that led to him becoming a Christian pastor. Kelly said about the film that it isn't a story about an ex-gay, but "a very relatable story about the power of belief and the desire to belong".

The cast also includes Zachary Quinto, Emma Roberts, Daryl Hannah, Charlie Carver and Lesley Ann Warren. The film was nominated for the Best First Feature Award at the Berlin International Film Festival.

The film was released at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and opened in theaters as a limited release on January 27, 2017. Reviews were mixed to positive, with universal praise directed at James Franco's exceptional performance.

Official Synopsis
"I AM MICHAEL is the incredible true-life story of Michael Glatze (Franco), a high profile queer youth activist who created a national controversy when he claimed to no longer be gay and became a straight Christian pastor. The film follows Michael from his life in San Francisco with his boyfriend Bennett (Quinto), where he pursues political activism, a journalist career at XY Magazine, social awareness, and sexual exploration, to his days of personal self-discovery. After a traumatic scare, Michael is plagued by doubt and paranoia, and begins a religious reawakening. Michael renounces his gay lifestyle, rejects his friends, and endeavors to find his "true self." He explores Buddhism and Mormonism, yet ultimately lands at a Christian Bible school in rural Wyoming where he meets his girlfriend, Rebekah (Roberts), and becomes the pastor of his own church. This powerful new film captures one man's haunting journey through modern concepts of love, denial and redemption."
