Ang Lee Does “Woodstock”

From Queerty:

He’s finally getting around to Taking Woodstock, which tackles the 1969 festival that’s “haunted” Lee for a decade. But back in 2007, reports Entertainment Weekly, he ran in to Elliot Tiber (who created the festiva) backstage at a talk show. Tiber gave Lee his one-minute elevator pitch, and Lee was hooked. So here’s the new trailer for Taking Woodstock, which stars Demetri Martin (yes, that guy) as Tiber, along with Liev Schreiber, Emile Hirsch, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. One thing you might miss from the movie? Tiber was a big ‘mo! Planning Woodstock is when he has his big revelation. But after Brokeback, Lee and writer-producer James Schamus are toning down the homoerotics, so don’t expect a drugged-up gay orgy in the back of a VW buss. Says Schamus to EW: “If Brokeback Mountain was about the tragedy of gay lives in an oppressive society, and Milk was about the triumph of coming out,Woodstock simply asks: ‘What’s the hang up? Join the party.'”

Check out the trailer after the jump. Continue reading
