Product Description:

After three chaste years of engagement, popular high school teacher Howard Brackett (Kevin Kline) is finally getting married, and his upcoming wedding to Miss Emily Montgomery (Joan Cusack) is the talk of their small, friendly town. But when a hometown boy-made-movie star outs Howard as gay during his Best Actor Oscar acceptance speech on national television, Howard must convince his friends, family, fiancée, and students that he's straight before his wedding day--but can he convince himself' Joan Cusack received a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her role as the beleaguered fiancée in this Frank Oz-directed comedy.

Plot Synopsis:

Exuberant, tart, and gently mocking of America's straight-laced response to nontraditional sexual matters, IN & OUT traces the both painful and laugh-filled journey of popular teacher Howard Brackett (Kevin Kline) from being everyone's buddy to an being an oddity when he's outed on national television by a former student turned movie star. Only days away from marrying longtime fiancée Emily (Joan Cusack), Howard scrambles all over town assuring everyone that he's not gay and the wedding is still on. But a kiss from a male TV entertainment reporter (Tom Selleck) spins Howard's world upside down--or perhaps finally right-side up. A howlingly funny and dead-on script by Paul Rudnick, shining performances by Kline and Cusack, and a deftly crafted message about placing individuals above stereotypes propel IN & OUT into the upper echelon of social comedies.
