In this gay romantic comedy tinged with a bit of fetish, teen Kyle (Sean Tataryn) is a hopeful poet who, bored with his superficial life and West Hollywood friends, decides to move to the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, an area which he thinks is edgier and more artistic. Just after moving, Kyle discovers a neighborhood coffee shop, where he is hoping to get his poetic juices flowing, but instead meets a motorcycle riding 30-year-old carpenter (Christopher Bradley). Will their one night stand turn into something more? Written by
This is a low-budget, sweetly motivated gay romance, written, directed and seemingly 98% acted by amateurs. This is not a criticism, just a warning not to expect polish. The one total acting professional is Christopher Bradley, who manages to both anchor the film with his sexy Mike, and carry the film's message -true committed monogamous love conquers all - by being the only character in the film who must change in order for us to have a happy ending.
Sean Tataryn, whose career in films was quite brief, sensitively plays the 18 year old poet, Kyle, who moves to Silver Lake to find that love. Mike, depending on your taste, is practically an icon of what a gorgeous, masculine, assured gay man should be. He is still immature, however, in that he's still actively promiscuous and even his "mate," whether ex or on again-off again, is bored and tired of Mike's playing around. The twist here is that the 18 year old Kyle is more mature in his outlook on life than the more life experienced Mike, while still being the hopeless romantic. The eventual happy ending, whether plausible or not, gives one hope.
Bradley gives his finest performance since his Vince Coll in MAD DOG COLL. Mike is sexy and assured on the surface and both confused and unsure inside.
His smile melts at twenty paces. I can't imagine how the film would have fared, had another amateur been cast as Mike- probably would be dismissed and forgotten by now. It is Bradley's creation that lifts LEATHER JACKET LOVE STORY out of the mundane and into the winner's circle. He carries us with him and keeps us interested in the unfolding love story.
There is nudity - full frontal - and it's very easy on the eyes. Both leads may thank Mother Nature. The sex is more of a turn on than most gay porn, so there's something there for everyone.
If you're gay, check it out. If not, still see it, but have a gay friend to talk to afterwards. You're liable to have LOTS of questions!
