Look­ing: The Movie pro­vides ‘clo­sure’ for can­celled gay drama

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

When the crit­i­cally praised HBO se­ries “Look­ing” was can­celled last year af­ter just two sea­sons, it was a crush­ing blow to the LGBTQ com­mu­nity. Af­ter all, it was the first high-pro­file show to fo­cus on gay men since Show­time’s “Queer As Folk” ended in 2005. Fans started on­line pe­ti­tions to bring the show back, and they’ll soon get their wish. Sort of. On Satur­day, “Look­ing: The Movie” will air on HBO Canada at 10 p.m., pro­vid­ing some clo­sure to fans of the se­ries. The film is set about nine months af­ter the Sea­son 2 fi­nale and finds Jonathan Groff ’s lead char­ac­ter, video-game de­signer Pa­trick, re­turn­ing to San Fran­cisco for the wed­ding of Agustin and Ed­die (Daniel Franzese). While there, he re­unites with the whole crew, which also in­cludes Mur­ray Bartlett as Pa­trick’s friend Dom Basaluzzo, who works in the restau­rant in­dus­try.
