Sara Gilbert agreed to do the movie because she is a friend of the movie's writer, Christopher Landon, son of the late Michael Landon, who starred in "Little House on the Prarie" with Melissa Gilbert, Sara's sister. Having the show on the TV when Scott first enters the room is a witty acknowledgment of this connection. See more »
A father buys his teenage son Scott (Erik MacArthur) an hour with prostitute Evelyn (Sara Gilbert) for $30.00. Evelyn pretty much figures out he's gay immediately and they just talk. That's about it really.
This is well-made short with very realistic dialogue and two great performances by Gilbert and MacArthur. Also there's an opening and closing sequence at a beach which pretty much tells you what happens. Touching, moving and just great. A very quiet and interesting coming of age and coming out story. A 10 all the way. This is included in one of the DVD "Boys Shorts" collections (sorry, I don't know which one). Also written and directed by openly gay Christopher Landon--son of the late Michael Landon. I think his father would be proud.
