Adapted from the novel by Michael Downing, and directed by Laurie Lynd, BREAKFAST WITH SCOT is a touching comedy that tells the story of a very 'straight' gay couple.

Eric (Tom Cavanagh of the hit series "ED," "Scrubs," "Eli Stone") lives for all things hockey. Now in his thirties, he's managed to turn his stint as an ex- Toronto Maple Leaf into a full-time gig as commentator for sports TV. He's living the dream! But when Eric's boyfriend Sam (Ben Shenkman of "Angels in America" "Law & Order," "Canterbury's Law") announces that they're to become temporary guardians of a young boy, Eric's comfortable world shatters. Enter Scot (Noah Bernett, "Prom Wars," "Girl's Best Friend," "Last Exit, "Gothika") -- a recently orphaned, swishy 11-year-old sissy-of-a-boy -- and Eric's mirror opposite. Freaked out by Scot's 'joie de vivre,' Eric and Sam gently nudge Scot away from scented hand cream and all things pink, towards a more 'acceptable' pastime – hockey. But after Scot's disastrous first game, Eric begins to rethink the compromises he's made in his own life in order to be 'accepted.'
Officially sanctioned by the NHL and the Toronto Maple Leafs, BREAKFAST WITH SCOT represents the first time a professional sports league has allowed their logo and uniforms to be used in a gay-themed movie.

BREAKFAST WITH SCOT was Closing Night Film of 2008 Frameline Festival (San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival).

“It flatters and charms the Canadian soul with a lesson about the importance of family over fear, tolerance over troubles, self-respect over self-doubt... and good stick handling over brawling. “
--James Rocchim Cinematical

“Director Laurie Lynd's deceptively complicated portrait of gay life in 2007 embraces the realistic middle, being both comic and dramatic in equal measure. He's found the needed balance that makes Breakfast With Scot not only amusing and heartfelt, but also genuinely thoughtful about life's many unexpected turns.”
-Peter Howell, Toronto Star

“FOUR STARS - A lively, realistic tone helps make this Toronto-set comedy much more than we expect, stirring in some thoughtful themes and honest emotion... the filmmakers take a refreshingly layered route through the story, breathing new life into the fish-out-of-water foster child genre in the process. It's the well-rounded characters that make this work, as they never settle into the stereotypes they could so easily have become. And the cast is likeable and engaging.”
--Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall

“Family movies in which an unwilling adult is thrust into the role of temporary guardian are a Hollywood staple, but these flicks are usually overloaded with stereotypes. While Breakfast With Scot delivers the requisite humour — not to mention some old-fashioned Christmas magic — it stands apart for its hearty helping of food for thought.”
--Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
