A very enjoyable short film.
23 March 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This short film tells the story of two young Scottish lads who have met in the damp marshes for one of their secret rendezvous. What ensues is a powerful mix of forbidden love, teenage-angst energy and tender affection.

"Davy & Stu" is a fine example of great acting. Both actors give strong, convincing performances. In particular, Nicholas Cutro(Stu) manages to convey the emotional intensity of his character, without over-acting or spelling-it-out for the audience. Words can be deceiving; the facial expressions, and especially the eyes, are more than enough to tell the truth of a character. From Cutro's performance, we understand Stu's internal struggle; the relentless pressures of social acceptability and his intense (almost over-powering) love for Davy.

This is a very enjoyable and touching short film. Hopefully these young actors will continue with their acting careers, as they put some veteran Hollywood actors to shame.
