“ON MY WAY OUT:
The Secret Life of Nani and Popi”
Directed by Brandon Gross, Skyler Gross/Documentary/USA/2017/40 minutes
All families have secrets. Having survived the Holocaust, Roman and Ruth Blank, affectionately known as Nani and Popi have been married for 60 years. Now at age 95, a deeply-held secret is revealed: Popi is gay, and finally free to explore his identity and seek the companionship he craves. But the revelation is not without repercussions. The film, created by the grandsons is awkwardly humorous at moments, and filled with tenderness, but one thing is clear; love is complicated.
