New Film Shows the Complexities of Life Just Below the Surface

Henry Gamble lives in a world that teaches him life is simple. But Henry, his friends, and his family know things aren’t always what they seem. Filmmaker Steven Cone weaves a story that touches on faith, doubt, sexuality, identity, depression and the internal and external conflicts you face when being honest is the hardest thing to do. 'Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party' is playing through Wednesday at the Gene Siskel Film Center.
