    I hate to admit it, but I am a sucker for rom coms with happy endings. I have been indulging with straight movies so far...
    I decided to browse the Gay section of Netflix and all the ones I saw so far are really dysfunctional, drug-fueled, violent and heart wrenching towards the end.
    Aren't there any great gay love stories out there.
    If yes, can you recommend me some? icon_redface.gificon_cry.gif

    "Beautiful Thing" and "Big Eden" come to mind but I'm not sure they're on Netflix.
    I think "The Sum of Us" was also fairly upbeat though it's years since I saw it.

    My favorite gay movie on Netflix is "Private Romeo". It's a rehash of Romeo & Juliet, without the sad ending.

    I have often wonder when they will make a leading role in top budget film a gay character. And dont have the usual undertones like past movies of a sharp toungue, boy crazed centerd plot? I have read that Green Lantern will be a gay character not sure if was in the next movie or in the comics, but sure would be nice to see.

    The Way He Looks

    The imdb description is good: "Leonardo is a blind teenager searching for independence. His everyday life, the relationship with his best friend, Giovana, and the way he sees the world change completely with the arrival of Gabriel."

    I grew up very religious and this movie made me cry. I watched it right after I admitted to myself I was gay, not quite 2 years ago.

    I have no love at all for Shelter, and I actually went to see it at the theater when it first came out. I know I'm in the minority - it's been called the best gay movie ever made by more than one critic - but I find it to be completely vacuous and insipid, although very prettily filmed (not a surprise since writer/director Jonah Markowitz typically works as an art director on films). Sorry, but if I had no more problems to deal with than the kid in that movie, I'd have had a much, much cushier life - and I'm guessing most everyone here can say the same.

    A film I like better, which came out one year earlier and had a suspiciously similar plot - kid from the wrong side of the tracks explores his sexuality while trying to get into art school - is Vacationland. It's not near as pretty a film in any sense of the word - much lower budget, more amateurishly filmed and acted, rougher in look and in plot. But it also plays much more true to life. And while the ending isn't storybook, I found it very satisfying.

    A funny contrast - while Shelter chose a title that seems overly melodramatic considering the softball plot, Vacationland went for irony in the opposite direction.

    As for a more mainstream gay movie, you can't do much better than The Broken Hearts Club. It's not exactly a romantic comedy and doesn't have exactly a happy ending, but it's one that'll leave you feeling good about being gay.

    @bro4bro, I agree about Broken Hearts Club; it's very good, and recommended to be paired with "Steel Magnolias".

    Gay movies with happy ending that I've watched: Strapped (2010), Hawaii (2013), Boys (2014), Mixed Kebab (2012), & Turtle Hill, Brooklyn (2013).

    Links to trailers within ;)

    "Ciao" the beginning that is sad, the end is more 'neutral', just fell for Alessandro CALZA icon_redface.gif

    "Mine Vanganti", an italian movie I read good review about, haven't got the chance to watch it yet though

    "Curiosity of Chance", it's a comedy, but not half bad

    the series of "Eating Out", basically a gay version of the "American Pie" movies

    "Juste une question d'amour" ('Just a matter of love' if I translate it). You can stream it with subs on youtube, just follow this link ! icon_smile.gif

    "A cause d'un garçon" (You'll get over it)

    You're welcome yall icon_cool.gif
