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'm not going to go into my entire life story here, but I will tell you
that i'm a straight person, so it may seem a little odd that I'd like
to watch this movie. I work at blockbuster video and I was running
movies one day when I came across a movie entitled "Latter Days." This
was intriguing to me because I grew up in a mormon household (but am no
longer a firm believer). I read that back and was instantly intrigued.
I have much respect for both the mormon community and the gay
community, so watching this was something I had been anticipating for a
while. I was quite curious how the director would portray the life or a
mormon who is hiding his sexuality. All in all, I have to say that this
movie is definitely worth watching. There have been some negative
comments posted about the quality and about how the dialogue didn't
seem to flow amazingly well at times, but I didn't notice anything. I
was so wrapped up in the plot and the portrayal of the movie that I
didn't notice much of anything that was bad. Most of the people that
have left comments on here have been gay, so I assume that most of the
people watching this movie would be gay males, and if that be the case,
it can become very poignant and heart wrenching at times. I know what
it's like to be shunned from the people you've grown up with, not
exactly how aaron does, but I have a definite feeling and this movie
went straight to my heart. As for recommending this movie, I am all for
it. Whether you'll enjoy it as much as I did really jumps from person
to person, but I say that you should go out and rent the movie just to
