Hallmark Cards’ streaming service Feeln recently released a new short film called “The Beginning,” which features a young man who comes out as gay to his father on prom night.
In the emotional five-minute clip, the father, Vince, admires his son Davis, who is headed to prom, calling him a “stud” and “ladykiller.” The two watch a bit of a basketball game before Davis becomes visibly anxious and worried, pacing around their living room. Vince then asks what’s wrong.
“Dad, you know the guy driving me to prom? Casey. You’ve met him before right?” Davis asks.
