Storyline

Justin Lo makes his feature film debut as Charlie Conrad, a 19-year-old history buff with the world on his shoulders. Following the death of his mother, Charlie sets aside his college plans to raise his highly imaginative 9-year-old brother Ben (Booboo Stewart). Isolated from his peers, Charlie accepts his responsibility yet secretly yearns for the freedom and romance associated with youth. Charlie suddenly gets his chance when he meets Jordan Rivers (Nick Bartzen), a charismatic drifter and fellow lost soul. The two of them hit it off immediately, and they soon embark on a tumultuous romance that gives Charlie a taste of the freedom he's been craving. Just as their relationship intensifies, however, Charlie's long-absent father, Doug (Barry Shay), returns to town with his own plans to take care of Ben. Caught in a struggle for Ben and eager to hold on to Jordan, Charlie must finally search his soul and make momentous decisions regarding the future of his family. Written by theconradboys@yahoo.com

A delightful film
25 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a delightful movie, very professionally filmed and with some excellent acting. Good photography and sound (I'm amazed at how many gay themed films have low or bad sound - it can ruin a movie.) I really came to care about these lead characters very much. They seemed absolutely real.

If I have to find fault at all, I thought that the film was a bit slow at times and could stand to be tightened up a bit in editing, perhaps by about 15 minutes. The two young lead characters are the stars of the film and the story line involving the father is less interesting and that's where I find myself wanting to fast forward. But, that's quibbling. This film is an amazing accomplishment. It is quite rare to find a gay-themed film of such quality and honesty. I'm always thrilled to come across something of quality after encountering so much junk wrapped in a pretty cover photograph. This film was very touching.
