Elegance Bratton— hailed by critics as “an instant queer classic.” (The Wrap) 

Starring Jeremy Pope and Gabrielle Union, The Inspection makes its U.S. premiere this Friday as the Closing Night Selection of the New York Film Festival.

In Elegance Bratton’s deeply moving film inspired by his own story, a young, gay Black man, rejected by his mother and with few options for his future, decides to join the Marines, doing whatever it takes to succeed in a system that would cast him aside. But even as he battles deep-seated prejudice and the grueling routines of basic training, he finds unexpected camaraderie, strength, and support in this new community, giving him a hard-earned sense of belonging that will shape his identity and forever change his life.
