Taiwanese film Baby Steps (滿月酒) at ReelQ Film Festival, October 15.

The 2014 Taiwanese film Baby Steps (滿月酒) will play at the Harris Theater on October 15 as part of the ReelQ: Pittsburgh Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. The film's official site tells more about the movie:
Baby Steps is a Taiwan-US co-production, produced by Oscar-winning producer Li-Kong Hsu (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Wedding Banquet, Eat Drink Man Woman) and Stephen Israel (Swimming With Sharks, G.B.F., I Do). Baby Steps received Tribeca Film Institute’s All Access production grant in 2014 as well as support from Taiwan Ministry of Culture and the City of Taipei.

Logline: Danny, a Taiwanese-American man, and his boyfriend Tate, long to have a baby, but the journey becomes more complicated by Danny’s well-intentioned but meddlesome mother who wants to control every aspect of the process from Taipei.
The movie starts at 7:30 and will be in English and Mandarin with occasional English subtitles. Tickets are $9 for general admission and $6 for students, and can be purchased online. The ReelQ Film Festival runs from October 9 through 17 at the Harris Theater in Pittsburgh's Cultural District (map).
