Out Late movie sceneOut Late is a 2008 documentary film about five individuals who make the life-altering decision to come out as lesbian, gay, or transgender, after the age of 55.

Directed by Beatrice Alda (the daughter of actor Alan Alda) and Jennifer Brooke, the movie ponders why the people it chronicles waited until their 50s, 60s, or 70s to come out, and what exactly was the turning point that caused each of them to openly declare their sexuality.

A DVD premiere movie, Out Late played at various film festivals (include a couple of LGBT ones), winning Best Documentary honors at the Long Island Film Expo and Cinhomo in Spain. It  achieved a solid reputation, earning the praise of talk show hosts Joy Behar and Phil Donahue, as well as Gloria Steinem, who describes the film as “Very moving — and so important.”

Bonus features on the DVD include a directors’ statement, bios, a LGBT resource guide and more.
