Were they using two different GMC Jimmys? In the first scene where Zach drives up Gabe/Shaun's driveway it looks/sounds like he put the truck in Park, but in subsequent scenes in the truck he was shifting a manual. See more »
I don't think the whole student thing's going to happen right now.
Why, 'cause you didn't get into that art institute place? Go somewhere else.
Art institute place... Whatever, it's alright... Scholarship was my ticket.
Well you are the king of scholarships.
Got me into your richy-rich private school.

This film is inspiring and the acting is superb. Trevor Wright does an amazing job in making us believe he is struggling to be everything to his family while dealing with his sexuality. Brad Rowe is also incredible. Casting him with Trevor was perfect. They are a true couple in this story. Jonah will go far in his career if he continues to make outstanding films like this one! Nice job to here! Networks for producing such quality work. I would like to know how Jonah came up with the idea for Shelter? As the film gets distributed in theaters, I also hope it makes it to GLBT youth programs so that young audiences can see this film, and be proud of who they are.
