  • A Palestinian graduate student in Tel Aviv struggles with a life-altering decision after falling into a same-sex romance with an Israeli lawyer in this topical drama from first-time director Michael Mayer. Nimr (Nicholas Jacob) is a bright young student who longs to escape the West Bank. He's dancing in a Tel Aviv nightclub when he meets Roy (Michael Aloni), a handsome Israeli lawyer. Before long, Nimr and Roy have fallen deeply in love. Meanwhile, Nimr has kept his sexuality a safeguarded secret from his conservative family, which includes his increasingly militant brother Nabil (Jameel Khoury). But Nimr can be himself around Roy, and when he loses his Israeli student visa, his new lover works diligently to fight the deportation process. Later, as Nimr's dreams of continuing his education in America begin to fade, the shocking death of a close friend causes him to reevaluate his future, which may mean saying farewell to the only man he ever truly loved.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Mayer ratchets up the tension on its appealing lead characters in believable, heartfelt ways while spinning out an edgy tale fueled by do-or-die sociopolitical intrigue. It's unique, powerful stuff."
    Los Angeles Times

    "OUT IN THE DARK is gripping, and Nimrs tearful exile from his family breaks your heart."
    New York Times
