"Steam is a movie that is charming, heart-wrenching and heart-warming all at the same time. You'll learn about different cultures, different religious beliefs, different ethnic practices and different sexualities. That it was written and directed by a white guy is all the more surprising.
Kyle Schickner, who wrote and directed "Steam," is also out as bisexual. He's been married, and he's been an activist, and he's done movies that have bi themes in them. "Steam" has a bit of a bi theme too, and it got him in a lot of hot water with some of the PC police (that's "politically correct" for those who missed the '80s.)"
