Breakfast with Scot is a 2007 Canadian comedy film. It is adapted from the novel by Tufts University professor Michael Downing.
The screenplay was adapted by Sean Reycraft from the book by Michael Downing, and the film was directed by Laurie Lynd. The film attracted significant press attention in 2006, when the National Hockey League and the Toronto Maple Leafs announced that they had approved the use of the team's logo and uniforms in the film. Breakfast with Scot was the first gay-themed film ever to receive this type of approval from a professional sports league.
In early 2007, several months before the film's release, an excerpt was screened at Toronto's Inside Out Film and Video Festival as an advance preview, alongside Lynd's earlier short films RSVP and The Fairy Who Didn't Want to Be a Fairy Anymore.
Breakfast with scot
Eric McNally (Tom Cavanagh) is a gay retired hockey player turned television sportscaster who lives with his partner Sam (Ben Shenkman), a sports lawyer. When Sam unexpectedly becomes the legal guardian of his brother's stepson, Scot (Noah Bernett), their lives are turned upside down as the demands of being a parent — as well as the boy's preference for clothing and hobbies which suggest that he may also be gay — begin to intrude on Eric's desire to remain closeted at work. Eric's unwillingness to accept the situation eventually fades as Scot teaches Eric about loving your true self.
