Gray Matters is a 2006 romantic comedy film directed by Sue Kramer, starring Heather Graham, Tom Cavanagh and Bridget Moynahan. It premiered on October 21, 2006 at the Hamptons International Film Festival and had a United States limited theatrical release on February 23, 2007.



Gray (Graham) lives a close-knit life with her brother Sam (Cavanagh). They live together, go to dance classes and generally live a very co-dependent lifestyle. When a guest at a dinner party mistakes the two for a couple, Gray and Sam decide to do something about their single lifestyles and "hook each other up". Gray introduces Sam to Charlie Kelsey (Moynahan).

2 days later, Sam and Charlie are engaged to be married - in Las Vegas. Gray takes Charlie out for a hen night, after which the two share a drunken kiss.

Charlie has no memory of it the next morning, but Gray has not slept. She realises that the bond she felt with Charlie was not coincidental. She is falling in love with her sister-in-law.

Then begins a beautiful journey of self-discovery, testing the relationship between two close siblings and finding happiness in lonely Manhattan.



Both Alan Cumming and Rachel Shelley are significant actors to the LGBT community. Cumming is openly bisexual and an LGBT rights activist, and Shelley has become familiar to queer audiences in her role of Helena Peabody in The L Word, on which Cumming has guest-starred.

Three of the movie's stars have been featured on the sitcom Scrubs: Molly Shannon had a guest appearance in one episode, and Tom Cavanagh and Heather Graham have both had recurring roles on the show.


  • The film was shot on location in New York City in only twenty-one days.
  • The screenplay was loosely based on the life of Carolyn Kramer, the director's sister.
