    Currently streaming on Netflix
    I wouldn't say this is the best movie I've seen in a while, but it is worth watching.

    A sex tape outs soap opera hunk Graham (Steve Callahan), who's summarily fired. At a Palm Springs resort to decompress, he meets Trey (Matthew Montgomery), a gay marriage advocate whose own relationship is on the skids. After a bumpy introduction, the two hit it off and love blossoms. But there's more to each man's scandalous past than they're ready to admit, and the truth has a way of getting out. David Pevsner and Jim J. Bullock co-star.

    This is from one of the reviews that I think gives good info about the movie:
    I truly enjoyed this movie and the fact that it actually addressed the reasons some gay people choose to stay in the closet. I enjoyed the acting, liked the characters, and frequently rolled my eyes (in the good way) at their shenanigans. At times it seemed a bit insular, which makes sense since it primarily took place within the confines of a smallish inn in Palm Springs. That slightly claustrophobic feeling worked very well for the story and made it more believable that the two main characters would connect so quickly. This is one that I plan to watch at least one more time and I highly recommend it. If this site had half-stars, this would get a solid 4.5 from me.

    I saw it recently. Way too 'preachy' for me. Very dialogue heavy, but with nothing interesting to say. I turned it off 1 hour in to it....I should have turned it off earlier. =/
