The hockey career of former Toronto Maple Leaf Eric McNally, who was known as a tough enforcer, came to an end with a shoulder injury. He is now a sportscaster. Except to his assistant Nula, what he hasn't told his work colleagues is that he is gay and that he is in a long term relationship with a sports lawyer named Sam. Eric feels that he can't be openly gay as an ex-hockey player or as a public figure still associated with professional hockey. Eric and Sam's life is turned upside down when they take temporary custody of Scot Latour, whose drug addict mother, Julie, recently passed away from a drug overdose. Julie assigned custody of Scot to her ex-boyfriend, Billy, who is Sam's deadbeat brother. Sam is certain that Billy will eventually come for Scot when he learns that Julie's insurance money also comes with custody. Having only had Julie's influence in his life, Scot is a flamboyant adolescent, who wears make-up, a feather boa and his mother's charm bracelet, and who loves ... Written by
The character, Eric McNally, is depicted as a former Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player. This movie received permission by the NHL, and the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey organization to use jerseys, clips, and other items relating to that club. It is the first time in major professional sports history that such permission has been given. This caused some controversy due to the character's homosexuality. See more »

I have never written a review for a movie before in my life, but when I stood up after finishing this movie, I had a grin on my face and a tear rolling down my cheek. Never before have I been so touched by a film as I was by 'Breakfast With Scot'.
Obviously not being a movie critic, my mind is having issues putting the feeling I have into words. The acting was superb, with very believable characters. And the children! Oh, the children! Every single one of those kids really took over their role, and although I didn't see as much of them as I wanted to, they each made me feel like there could be a whole movie just about them. And yes, I even liked the slightly homophobic (but in a cute way) neighbor boy. He was actually my favorite character out of the whole thing.
The main thing I can say is that this is a beautiful movie. Everything about it felt real. This is a movie you can relate to whether you're gay or not. It shows how not only the gay community is evolving, but how the world is evolving right along side it. The story unfolds in a way where you find yourself relating to the ideals and logic of each of the characters in turn, and in the end, you will most definitely leave embodied with a sense that the world is as simple as you could ever want it to be. And it is.
