Leaving Metropolis is a 2002 Canadian drama film written and directed by Brad Fraser and based on his play entitled Poor Super Man. When David (Troy Ruptash), a well-respected artist, feels creatively blocked, he decides to take a job as a waiter. His roommate Shannon (Thom Allison) finds the Main St. Diner, owned by Matt (Vince Corazza) and Violet (Cherilee Taylor), a local restaurant looking for a waiter. David is hired, and the owners know nothing of his stance within the art community or that he is gay. Shannon's sex-change operation is delayed because of her HIV-positive status and David installs one of his paintings in the restaurant and gets published in the paper. Matt and Violet then find out that David is famous, and Matt pesters David to teach him how to paint. When David paints a portrait of Matt in the nude, the two begin an affair. They fall in love and when Shannon walks in on the two having sex they must make the decision whether or not to tell Violet. Shot in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Leaving Metropolis was nominated for the Grand Prix des Ameriques at the Montreal World Film Festival.moreless
