A bullied and demoralized gay student at an all-boys school uses a magical flower derived from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream' to turn many in his community gay, including a comely rugby player for himself.
Aaron Davis (Steve Sandvoss) and Christian Markelli (Wes Ramsey) are perhaps the two most opposite people in the world. Aaron is a passionate young Elder (a Mormon missionary) who wants to do his family and church proud. Christian is a shallow West Hollywood waiter/party boy who only looks forward to what man the next night will bring to him. After Aaron and three other Elders move into the apartment across from his, Christian's friends make a bet that he can't get one of them into the sack, so he instantly latches onto Aaron, suspecting there is more than meets the eye to him. There are two problems, though: Christian finds himself questioning his own identity as he falls in love with Aaron and the Mormon Church treats homosexuality as a sinful lifestyle. When Aaron's burgeoning sexuality is discovered, they will have to go through trials of regret, loss, perseverance, and forgiveness if they want to get to the thing that matters to them most: each other.

I was hoping for a great film...but it didn't deliver
OK so one of the reasons I watched this film was because I noticed a lot of praise for the film and being billed as "the Best Gay Film" by many. However this film was terrible. The quality of the film was just astoundingly bad. The acting was awful by the entire cast...even Joseph Gordon-Levitt's acting couldn't give this movie a shred of dignity. At one point you could even see a crew member in a mirror holding a camera!! I will admit the plot of the movie was ambitious, however they failed to really nail it and give it the right treatment. Also the sex scenes were ambitious but the characters were far too uncomplicated and simple. The story was completely predictable with an even more predictable ending. Everyone was talking about how they cried when seeing this movie. It didn't work for me, which is surprising cause I cry to a lot of movies ha ha. They just didn't allow enough time for proper character development.
Please I recommend everyone to formulate their own opinions but if you want a quality film that will actually resound with you, watch "Beautiful Thing", "Get Real" or "Shelter"...I cried to "Beautiful Thing" ha ha
