Marcial Di Fonzo Bo,

There's something I really need to tell you.
I already know. I've known for awhile.
You're the only reason I wish I wasn't. I've always wanted to be everything to you. I've always dreamed of providing you with everything you ever wanted or needed.

An Exceptional Film About Love, Family, And Relationships
What an amazing movie about love, family, and relationships. It was great to watch a film that used characters that stepped outside of the gay stereotypes seen in most films. It was even better to see a movie that focused on the love (rather than the sex) between the two lead characters.
While there are some scenes that scream "low budget," the end product as a whole was very rewarding. The acting, writing, and directing were all solid.
After so many disappointing gay films, I'm thrilled to have a movie like this come along. If this is a sign of things to come in gay cinema, then I am excited about future films. If you haven't seen "Shelter" yet, go give it watch. You'll be glad you did. Enjoy.
