'Wild About Harry' film, about teenage girls raised by gay dad in 1970s, raising money for distribution

On Kickstarter:

Wild About Harry

What would you do if you thought your Dad might be "queer"!? That's what happened to me... in 1973.

It's that kind of year. Just like President Nixon, Dad lies big time. I get my period. A strange man moves into the house and, oh yeah, Mom is dead. And, I am really worried that Dad might be “a queer".

Inspired by the invisible and taboo life that my sister and I faced growing up with our father and his male life partner, Wild About Harry tells the story of two teenage girls raised in a gay household in the 1970s, when the laws of the United States actually made it illegal for any gay person to raise a child.

Wild About Harry is both a coming of age tale and a multi-faceted love story.

It's the Fall of 1973. Sixteen-year-old Madeline Goodhart moves with her fourteen-year-old sister Daisy and recently widowed father Harry to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Everything seems fabulous in this idyllic beach community until one night Madeline and her high school friends sneak out to an underground disco where they see something that will change their lives forever.

You'll see this trailer in cinemas across the country if we meet our Stretch Goals!  Coming soon to a theater near you!

    Our current goal of $50,000 is the MINIMUM we need to raise to get our film DISTRIBUTION READY.

    Kickstarter is All or Nothing and that is why we have set our first goal at $50,000. We have to raise that money first or we get nothing. Yikes!

    But the sky is really the limit and thanks to you we'll be able to release the movie digitally and in movie theaters across the country!
