Very good, and very true to life of the bear community
As a young,gay, cub myself. I could relate to this movie. A lot. Though I have never been in a father figure situation, I do consider myself part of the community in a big way. The bear life is not all about sex, drugs, and alcohol, but mostly about friendship. Most guys who are bears, or enjoy being around bears, is because of the fact that bears are not phony or stuck up, like the stereotypical gay male.
But this movie, besides the fact that the lead actor and the boy did an amazing job, I feel that it should show more of how bear friends really are. The part where they had a surprise party, made me realize what it's like when I go to bear parties like that. Everyone is friendly and we all take care of each other. I think there should be more movies like this that shows gay men in this aspect. We're not all like the guys on Queer as Folk or Will and Grace.
But in my opinion I think the director did a great job in focusing on the main aspect: The Boy. And he did it well. But this is only the beginning of something great for us bears out there. And hopefully America will make a movie similar to this or a movie that somewhat shows gay life as not so campy and dramatic. Thank you for this movie, it needed to be made.
