Inside Out 2016 Review: Miles

milessmall

It is still common for many LGBT people from small towns and remote communities to face resistance and intolerance.  These places are slow to adapt and change and often have close-minded attitudes about anything outside the norm.  It’s usually an unwelcoming, and occasionally unsafe, environment to be openly gay so plans are often made by teens to move to some place more accepting as soon as possible.  So goes the story of Miles Walton, a young gay man stuck in a dead-end town, desperate to get to Chicago in search of a better life.  Nathan Aldoff’s latest film Miles taps into an experience that many outsiders searching for larger things in life can identify with and teaches the lesson to stand firm when you think what you’re doing is right.
