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

A Beautiful, Heart-felt Film
2 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this beautiful movie at the Outfest film festival in Los Angeles with some friends who dragged me along. I am glad they did.

Let me be up front: I am a sucker for romance, so I was pleasantly surprised and moved by how sexy and romantic the story was. The two young men have a great chemistry on the screen, and they ably carry the movie. The film also has a disarming sense of humor at times, but not at the expense of the characters.

There are very few films that attempt to deal with spirituality, let alone in the gay context. Yes, the film may be unabashedly sentimental, but in this cynical day and age where most gay characters on screen are trying to figure out their wardrobe or their next conquest at the bars, it was refreshing to see a film take a chance. I loved it.
