I watched this movie last night, knowing nothing about it except that it was in the "gay section" on Amazon Prime, some ruggedly attractive guys were on the cover, and it was independent. As such, I wasn't sure whet to expect. With a name like "Leather" I was half expecting it to be about S&M.
Needless to say what I wound up watching was something else all together and I was pleasantly surprised. "Leather" is actually a dreamlike film about three people all at various crossroads in their lives, rediscovering themselves in a cabin out in the woods. The title references the fact that one of the main characters makes things out of leather and is a brilliant craftsmen. The pastoral mood of the movie pulled me in and I found myself longing to walk the wooded paths as well. The sun-washed shots of the lake were a perfect frame to showcase the beautiful story as it unfolded.
The story of childhood friends trying to reconnect, long forgotten feelings, the passing of time - and letting to of people and places that have served their purpose in life - these themes are dealt with impressively. This is not a movie for anyone looking for car chases or things blowing up - but for anyone who wants to go on an emotional journey - and also enjoy some beautiful nature in the process, this film is highly recommended.
