A bullied and demoralized gay student at an all-boys school uses a magical flower derived from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream' to turn many in his community gay, including a comely rugby player for himself.
In a suburb of London, young Jamie is escaping sport hours, to avoid being the victim of his comrades. Young Ste, his neighbor, is beaten by his father, and comes to sleep overnight. They discover new feelings, sleeping in the same bed.
If you had a love-potion, who would you make fall madly in love with you? Timothy, prone to escaping his dismal high school reality through dazzling musical daydreams, gets to answer that question in a very real way. After his eccentric teacher casts him as Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, he stumbles upon a recipe hidden within the script to create the play's magical, purple love-pansy. Armed with the pansy, Timothy's fading spirit soars as he puckishly imposes a new reality by turning much of his narrow-minded town gay, beginning with the rugby-jock of his dreams. Ensnaring family, friends and enemies in this chaos, Timothy forces them to walk a mile in his musical shoes. The course of true love never did run smooth; it's a bumpy ride. Written by

I'm not a lesbian. That's your fantasy. I'm heteroflexible.
Ya know, why don't you two just get it on already?
I'm straight, but shit happens.

I watched Were The World Mine this afternoon on DVD and was completely under the spell ! People on the boards have criticized this movie in every way, from every angle and in every detail. Get real folks ! This film is a fantasy, it's sole objective to entertain and to make us dream, to get us away from our dull everyday existences and just enjoy ourselves. As far as I'm concerned, the director ,crew and cast succeeded admirably ! It's never going to be easy for a gay-theme movie to find popularity in main-stream cinema and even more so when things are done on a tight budget, but Were The World has done just that ! Even the gay-clichés made me laugh,as there weren't too many and they fitted into the story-line smoothly. I truly hope that the largely unknown cast go on to long, successful careers !
I gave it a 10, simply because the film entertained me and I couldn't ask for anything more !
