THE INSPECTION

​​In Elegance Bratton’s deeply moving film inspired by his own story, a young, gay Black man, rejected by his mother and with few options for his future, decides to join the Marines, doing whatever it takes to succeed in a system that would cast him aside. But even as he battles deep-seated prejudice and the grueling routines of basic training, he finds unexpected camaraderie, strength, and support in this new community, giving him a hard-earned sense of belonging that will shape his identity and forever change his life.

The director infuses his directorial debut with style, spiky humor and an alluring edge creating a raw and surreal viewing experience. Bratton’s personal experiences converge in Hawai‘i as he was stationed at O‘ahu’s Camp Smith in the mid-2000s. World premiering at the recently concluded Toronto Film Festival, this upcoming acclaimed drama from A24 has garnered rave reviews with The Wrap heralding the film as having “the trappings of an instant queer classic.”
