Storyline

A hot, young and charming man with ulterior motives enters the lives of a tight-knit group of gay men in New York City and at first adds excitement and intrigue to their group, but events soon spiral out of control as he deliberately attempts to destroy their relationships. Both touching and funny, WHIRLWIND is a subtle and honest depiction of thirty-something gay men and the crossroads they must face. Written by Jason Brown

QAF movie version
28 November 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I thought that this is a refreshing change from a lot of recent gay movies.

Supposedly we have a group of mature men: 20's and 30's. But dig below the surface and we see their true selves when Drake appears. I won't explain Drake's motivation for his action but his role as, essentially, a psychopath, is well written: he has the ability to charm his way into any one's like quickly spotting their weaknesses and exploiting them for his own reasons. I wouldn't like to have him in my workplace. Although the 'villian', Drake also serves as catalyst in exposing the shortcomings each individual in the group.

Of the other characters a couple are stereotypes but most are complex enough to carry the story but still be resolved in a movie time-frame. This is a good looking movie. Yes, some of the guys are hot (not, to my taste Drake though)but the settings work well and the small apartments add to the claustrophobic-like relationships that these friends have together. New York as a background works well: not a West Hollywood convertible in sight.
