On August 28th, one of my favorite films of the year will finally be arriving on DVD, courtesy of Breaking Glass Pictures. Nathan Adloff‘s acclaimed indie, “Nate & Margaret,” centers on the unlikely friendship that blossoms between a 52-year-old aspiring stand-up comic, Margaret (Natalie West), and a 19-year-old gay film student, Nate (Tyler Ross). Chicago actor Conor McCahill makes his feature film debut as James, an openly flirtatious young man who takes an instant liking to Nate. Their relationship leads to some of the film’s most memorable moments, and the conflicts that arise between them are universally relatable. There’s a particularly tense scene set at a restaurant that manages to be both heartbreaking and laugh-out-loud funny. McCahill was a blast to chat with on this podcast, and he had many great stories to share about working with Adloff, Ross and Gaby Hoffmann. His superb performance in “N&M” certainly bodes well for the future of his acting career. I can’t wait to see what he does next.

The program was produced at Columbia College Chicago. Technical producer was Rebecca Nystedt. An Indie Outlook Production.

By the way, if you have no idea what Conor and I are talking about when we’re laughing over the “Chloe” videos on YouTube, here’s a sample…
