CultBox has an exclusive clip from Closets, a new gay short film featuring Cucumber stars Julie Hesmondhalgh and Ceallach Spellman.
Also starring The Sarah Jane Adventures actor Tommy Lawrence Knight, the time travel film sees Hesmondhalgh and Spellman, who played Cleo and Adam in Queer as Folk creator Russell T Davies’ new LGBT drama Cucumber on Channel 4 earlier this year, appear as mother and son for a second time.
The story follows tormented 16-year-old Henry (Knight) in 1986 who is struggling with his sexuality in his bedroom when he time travels to 2016 and meets gay teenager Ben (Spellman), who is occupying the same room 30 years later.

Closets is described as “an unusual, compassionate and ultimately uplifting story, peppered with sorrow, humour and hope”.
Directed by Lloyd Eyre-Morgan (Dream On, Celluloid), Closets will highlight past and present-day issues facing young gay teenagers, exploring homophobic bullying and confusion about sexual identity.
