Forty Shades of Blue is a 2005 independent film directed by Ira Sachs. It tells the story of Alan James (Rip Torn), an aging music producer who lives in Memphis, Tennessee with his much younger Russian girlfriend, Laura (Dina Korzun). Their life together is complicated by the presence of Alan's adult son Michael (Darren E. Burrows) from a previous marriage, who forces Laura to reflect on the nature of her impending marriage and her future prospects. The film was inspired by Satyajit Ray's Charulata (1964).

Synopsis

À Memphis, Tennessee, Alan et Laura forment un couple original, mais dont la passion semble pour le moins éteinte : producteur de légende, Alan est un des rares Blancs à avoir produit de la soul dans les années 1960. Beaucoup plus jeune et fraîchement débarquée de sa Russie natale, Laura passe l'essentiel de son temps à s'occuper de leur jeune fils, alors qu'Alan mène une vie très débridée.

In 1998, Erik (Thure Lindhardt), a Danish artist living in New York, meets Paul (Zachary Booth), a lawyer, through a phone sex hotline. Clearly attracted to each other, they share an intimate moment and have sex. Erik later visits a man named Russ (Sebastian La Cause) who seems more interested in showing off his muscles to Erik than having sex. Erik sees Paul again, and tells him about how he broke up with his ex-boyfriend Paolo, who was HIV-positive. Erik confides to his friend Claire (Julianne Nicholson) on how he is happier now with Paul than he was with Paolo. Meanwhile, Paul asks Erik to keep quiet about his drug use and gets Erik high. Paul, who was closeted before meeting Erik, sees his ex-girlfriend while visiting an art gallery with Erik, who tries to persuade Paul to introduce him to her. While away from the city, Erik calls his doctor for some test results and learns that he is HIV-negative. Later, Paul throws a surprise birthday party for Erik.

The Delta tells the story of 18-year-old Lincoln Bloom (Shayne Gray), who, after leading a relatively straight teenage life, is slowly drawn into the LGBT world and discovers he is gay. After visiting various shady establishments (including gay bars, video arcades, etc.) and engaging in sexual acts with "men he didn't know," Lincoln meets Minh Nguyen (Thang Chan), a Vietnamese immigrant, and travels down river with him in a cabin cruiser. In a doomed relationship, the two bond with each other, Lincoln neglecting to tell his girlfriend and leading two parallel lives. At the end of the film, Minh and Lincoln take a boat out on the Mississippi River to set off fireworks and this is where the film dramatically concludes.
