Shot in stark black and white, 1985 takes us back to the early days of the HIV/AIDS crisis. Adrian (Gotham’s Cory Michael Smith) returns from Manhattan to his conservative, Christian family in Texas, and a warm welcome from his mother (Sideways star Virginia Madsen), but a frostier one from his father (Michael Chiklis). Going back to a place he associates with disillusionment and discrimination would be hard enough, but the harsh reality of city life isn’t the only secret Adrian has kept from them.
