Storyline

Brady (Sean Hoagland), who will shortly be going away to college, is a shy, introspective 18 year old, who moves to the coastal seaside town of Rock Haven with his overprotective, widowed mother Marty (Laura Jane Coles), who is setting up a Christian school nearby. He spends a lot of time on the beach, either reading the bible or staring at the waves crashing on shore, until he meets a neighbour's free- spirited visiting son, 19 year old Clifford (Owen Alabado). There is an instant attraction to each other, even though homosexuality conflicts with Brady's devoutly Christian beliefs. Brady has struggled with his feelings before and spends a lot of time showering, as if to scrub these feelings away. He seeks advice from his pastor (played by David Lewis, the director), who tries to reassure him by emphasising biblical texts which portray God as non-condemnatory love. Brady's mother, sensing that something is wrong, tries to fix him up with a nice Christian girl - who knows immediately ... Written by Zaga

Predictable, but great!
15 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

Finally! After all the time I spent wondering why there weren't any good movies that have a gay theme, then I stumbled across this movie.

It's about a Christian who finds out he's gay, and that becomes a conflict between a love life, or his religion. (I know this sounded terrible, but...) I have to admit that I was surprised that I actually liked this movie, since it has no secrets, if you know what I mean, then great! If you don't, let me put it this way. You almost always know what's coming.

That's all that's "bad" about the movie.

What I like about it, is that it has a nice plot. Some people would rate this show pretty low, because it is kind of repetitive, but I don't mind when it's this type of movie.

The thing that I like is the characters. People are really, surprisingly nice in the movie, including the priest (or whoever he is).

The names for the characters, I feel could be a bit better (they aren't my favorite), but the actors were pretty good at acting and looking the part they played. The two gay people in the movie actually look gay, and look really convincing for the part.

To me, this show is not that much of a drama, but it's still there, though not as strong as I usually like dramas, although you can't really make people cry for something like this (at least, I probably couldn't)
