In & Out| 1996

Kevin Kline is Howard Brackett, an English teacher outed during the Oscar acceptance speech of ex-pupil Cameron Drake (Matt Dillon), an event seemingly based on Tom Hanks’ naming of his drama teacher when picking up the award for Philadelphia (though Hanks claims he checked with the teacher beforehand).

Set in the fictitious town of ‘Greenleaf’, the movie filmed around New York State and New Jersey, mainly at Northport, NY.

‘Greenleaf High’ is Pompton Lakes High School, 44 Lakeside Avenue, Pompton Lakes, New Jersey. The bar scenes filmed in a disused bar at Slater’s Mill, Riverdale, New Jersey.

The ‘Hollywood’ Oscar exteriors filmed outside the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, New York. More scenes filmed in the Concert Hall at the Performing Arts Center of Purchase College, 735 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, upstate New York.
