Closeted advertising executive Adrian (breakthrough performance by Cory Michael Smith, Fox’s Gotham) returns to his Texas hometown after a three year absence. Burdened with unspeakable tragedy in New York City during the first wave of the AIDS crisis, Adrian looks to reconnect with his preteen brother while navigating his relationship with his religious parents, Eileen (Academy Award Nominee Virginia Madsen) and Dale (Golden Globe Winner Michael Chiklis). When he reaches out to his estranged childhood friend, Carly (Jamie Chung, Fox’s The Gifted), their unresolved issues force Adrian to confront an uncertain future that will significantly alter the lives of those around him. Shot on black-and-white Super 16mm film, 1985 takes a unique look at a pivotal moment in American history through the prism of empathy, love, and family.
