‘King Cobra’ is the ‘Boogie Nights’ of gay porn’– Indiewire

Melbourne Premiere

Sean Lockhart, 17 and boyishly handsome, dreams of fame even though he's broke and without direction. When he meets Stephen (Christian Slater), founder of Cobra Video, he starts to perform in gay porn under the moniker "Brent Corrigan," creating a slew of wildly successful videos during which he blossoms from a naïve young man into a confident sex symbol. When rival porn producers Joe (a gleefully demented James Franco) and his unhinged lover Harlow set their sights on stealing Sean from Stephen, an all out porn turf war ensues, resulting in a shocking murder in this stranger-than-fiction true story. The cast is rounded out by Molly Ringwald and Alicia Silverstone. King Cobra is a wild ride.

Director Justin Kelly is a guest of the festival and will introduce the session.
