    Oh man! I've wanted to watch this film for aaages coz I read on RJ somewhere in a forum that it was about a male prostitute and I thought HOT!!!

    Then when I watched it with my mate tonight I can't believe what a deep film it was. Sooooo sad. I thought I had issues, but I count myself so lucky to have amazing friends and family, great career beginnings and a happy life.

    This film was such an eye opener and reminds me why so many 'escorts' and porn stars go into such businesses and how sad it must be to end up like that.

    What are your thoughts on the film guys?

    Very well done.... Good acting, strong story. One very disturbing scene that is difficult to watch. Overall it makes me want to increase my donations to Trevor Project, Covenant House, and similar charitable organizations. See this film.

    I watched this with my uncle when I was about 14. A third of the way through he says "too gay" and turns it off. So I waited until late at night and then watched the rest.

    A pretty disturbing film, but still intriguing, and a kind of ambiguous ending. I'd like to see it again.

    It was a good film. Though I should probably re-watch it to have a better understanding of the underlying themes. I saw it when I was 12-13yrs old.

    It's an eye opening filming that's for sure.
    I remember watching it a few years back and had to look into the trailer on YouTube to remember about the film in general.
    A movie as such can and have caused people to speculate at why some men are gay...Unfortunately it was just this past weekend I told someone I was gay and they then asked if I was abused as a child...Fucking weirdo's some people are
