Storyline

Coming-of-age. A small-town young man realizes why he's such a misfit - he's gay! Adolescence is proving a pain for the always-thinking Dorian. He's an outcast and the butt of classmates' fag jokes at high school. He's different and understands why when he reaches the conclusion that he's a "stereotypical gay." He soon announces this discovery to his homophobic, Nixon-loving dad. As Dad throws him out of the house, Dorian's off to NYU to encounter a new world of coffee houses, sophisticates and handsome men. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Dorian Lagatos: [voice-over narration] You know the one worst thing my father ever did to me? He convinced me it matters what people think of you. And the truth is, they never think quite enough. So from then I started living my life no matter what they thought. Even when they thought I was crazy and should take my liberal views and my pink shirt and move to another planet, I just had to laugh 'cause it's not pink, it's fuscia!

funny funny film of self-awareness, coming out
2 October 2005 | by (Greenwich Village, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

This was a perfect film to watch after a light meal and before going home to watch TV. Light, satisfying, attractive male actors, and funny. A few of the players stood out, especially Michael McMillian, who played Dorian. He has a great way of delivering a killer line--reminds me of young Matthew Broderick or Topher Grace. A winning personality, but great neurotic schtick. The younger brother (who is a straight jock) is hot to look at, but a lesser actor. Some of the others in the film were good enough, but are obviously local actors (upstate NY is where the film was shot, and where it takes place).

Cod Nickell, who plays Ben, is especially likable as Dorian's first boyfriend. If any of the other actors deserve to break out of Albany, it would be him.

The movie is slyly comical, with a lot of big laughs. The director aims for big slapstick in Dorian's pickup in an S&M bar, but it was so ludicrous that it took away from the offbeat, but realistic tone of the rest of the movie. It was pure cartoon.

There is nothing explicit (almost nothing implicit) in this movie, so it's safe for the whole family. I saw a lot of females in the theater, and they seemed to enjoy it as much as the men.
