While Tom Cruise is raking it in at the box office, there’s another high-flying military movie worthy of your time.
The controversial Firebird follows the story of a handsome soldier who starts a secret affair with an ace fighter pilot in Communist-ruled 1970s Estonia.
The dramatic, sensual film has been a hit on the festival circuit and today it’s available on digital platforms and video-on-demand, making it a perfect way to spend a date night this Pride Month.
Based on a true story, the movie’s as sexy as it is suspenseful with so much at stake if anyone discovers their romance. These particular firebirds are pretty great to look at, but the most important takeaway is how much easier many of us have it these days as gay men.
Though things have come a long way in Estonia, too.
Out today on digital ($14.99) and video on demand ($5.99)
