Quality acting and interesting script save low budget movie
The other reviews have pretty much said it all, although I expected a little more from this given the rather over-the-top ecstatic reviews (certainly I expected more than the one plot 'twist' I got just over half way through - one that had already been revealed to me on the blurb on the back of the DVD).
One can argue it's a homophobic piece or one can argue entirely the opposite, but one can't argue that it's a well scripted, well paced and well acted movie that is worthy of 90 minutes of anyone's time in the world of Hollywood formulaic drama that dominates the mainstream. There isn't, truth be told, a lot of plot here, but what little there is turns out to be surprisingly gripping, thanks to the superb job of both the actors who are never less than totally believable in their roles.
I was amazed to read one 'review' here that just appeared to be a spiteful attack on the perceived commercial success of James Marden's acting career - just because he's easy on the eye is no excuse for slating a performance that most actors would be envious of as a career best. Well worth a viewing!
