Well done on no budget
26 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Riley Adamson (Norbert Orlewicz) goes to live with his older brother Chad (Cody Campbell) after their mom dies. Chad had some severe problems with their parents and they all come out when Riley arrives. Also Riley is gay and just coming out. He meets Gavin (Kevin Macdonald) and falls in love. Chad has a girlfriend Tobie (Karen Kae) and things slowly escalate and finally explode.

A VERY low budget film made in grainy black and white and with (sometimes) inaudible sound. Still this is pretty impressive. The script is well-written and moves quick (this is only an hour long). The situations are realistic and there are some very powerful sequences (especially when Riley and Chad have it out at the end). It all ends on a realistic and (somewhat) happy note. The acting isn't bad. Campbell isn't too good and Macdonald is OK. Rae starts off very shrill but eventually tones down and gives a good performance. Orlewicz is excellent in the pivotal role.

Basically a good low-budget family drama. My only complaint--Orlewicz and Macdonald aren't gay--and it shows. When they kiss they look so uncomfortable it's distracting.
