Storyline

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 TrivWhiz

Sexy Love Tale
21 May 2001 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This movie is a charming, very sexy love story between a cute blond valley boy and an older leather biker type. It's a simple story, endearingly told and well directed. Sean Tatyran and Chris Bradley are excellent. The black and white filming gives the movie a nice arty house/50's feel.

A rare film in which a gay relationship is treated with the same normality as a straight one.
