[Dorian tells his father he's gay]
Son, you don't even know the meaning of the word.
I don't know the word "gay" means?
I doubt it.
Well, you're wrong.
What's it mean?
It means I like men - not you, maybe, but in general.
You hear the anger there? Hm? You see, that's the crux to all of this. You're so angry at me, you'd do anything to try and shock me.
Of course I'm angry at you, because you've never had anything but contempt for me.

one of the best films at the 2004 Frameline SF Gay Film Festival
When the film was introduced as another coming out story, I was less than enthused, since although coming out is an important and (unfortunately) enduring subject to cover, it's been done often (both well and less-than-wonderfully) before. I was amazed, though, at how well this film dealt with the topic, but more importantly, what a thoroughly enjoyable film it was - the acting, story line, situations, characters and most of the all the humor - often conveyed thru the dialogue and really funny film techniques - was all first rate. Add to all this the fact that this was the straight director's first feature length film, and it is truly an amazing achievement. One of the most enjoyable screenings at this years Frameline SF Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.
