All Out

All Out

Kevin Newman and his son, Alex, open up in this moving chronicle about the thing that almost drove them apart--the personal and societal expectations surrounding masculinity. While Kevin reached the summit of American network television and was coached on how to develop a "quarterback" persona, Alex realized he was gay. Both hungered for each other's approval, but didn't know how to bridge their differences. Today, a decade later, father and son retrace their steps (and missteps) to reinventing their relationship and becoming each other's role models. Confessional and provocative, All Out is a powerful reminder that fathers and sons can become closer not despite their differences, but because of them.
