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 Miracle of a Movie
3 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All I can say is that I wish they had made this film when I was a bit younger -- it would have changed my life. They should show this film in every church in America. The film is not preachy, it's a love story with a lot of meaning. Straight people should see this, also. The actor who played Brady in the movie was great, he deserves to be in more movies. And the guy who played the non-Christian boy is not only gorgeous, but talented. The only thing I would say against this movie is that it kinda gets off to a slow start in the first few minutes, too much ocean photography at the beginning, even though I thought it was beautiful to look at. But the film quickly picks up momentum and really gets interesting. And hot!
