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

A nice gay romance
19 November 1998 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

Kyle, an aspiring young (18) poet and knockout gorgeous falls for Mike who arrives with a friend on a motorcycle and wearing the leather jacket of the title. Kyle meets Mike in a cafe in Silver Lake. Their courtship/romance is sensitively portrayed while the director carries the viewer to the limit of tasteful eroticism. The others in the cast help to move the story along and provide opportunities for humor and philosophy.

The Black and White photography could be better. It seems uneven at times. Color may have been nice but this provides an opportunity for imagination to play a role.
