    I tried to see if there was a thread about this movie, or if this movie has been discussed in other threads but couldn't find anything.


    So...I really liked this movie a lot. It was director Scott Bozwell's first time out...and for a young kid I thought he did a fine job. The actors are all new...and I found that I could relate a bit to each character in this relationship gone wrong storyline. Don't let the overall rating from IMDB scare you away..it is not mediocre at all. Read some of the reviews at the bottom from people who actually watched the movie.

    Have you seen this one yet? Any thoughts or anything else gay oriented out there that you would recommend?

    Just watched it tonight on Netflix... Have to say it was better than most of the "gay and lesbian" movies typically found on the site. The story was good, but the acting left something to be desired... I wanted to be more emotionally invested in the guy from Chico than I was by the time the film ended. That said, it hit on some really gritty domestic abuse stuff that doesn't get enough "on air" time in the gay community. It was nice to see Scott Boswell direct that well.

    Just my $.02!

    A low IMDB on a gay themed movie is only to be expected. People will vote it down just to be facetious because they hate gays.

    I just tried to watch it on Netflix, but the quality is so poor I couldn't make out any detail whatsoever...damn hotel internet. It's now in my queue so I'll watch it when I get home.

    Oh, come on--Gay&Lesbian isn't even a listed genre in IMDB, unlike Netflix, which had about the same rating, if slightly higher. I tend to trust those reviews a little more since your'e prompted to rate them right after watching. I do usually avoid those less than two full stars out of five.
    The gay themed movies rarely have a decent budget, and a lot suffer because of it. Some stand out. This one's in my queue as well and should be worth trying.
