A movie that leaves u thinking afterwords
4 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very interesting movie it hits on various points on cute houseboy Ricky (Nick May) played his character quite well. There is nudity in this film as well as drug use going on and the cast of characters entering and departing from his moment in the movie is typical of what u would find in any gay persons life. Make sure u watch the deleted scenes there's more fo the story there. You must watch it after the movie it will tell u a very crucial piece of info of the end of the movie wont tell u. Movie should affect anyone at any age even though it covers the a week of a 21 yr old it touches on many things that happens to each of us gay. One thing bad about the DVD it had no subtitles option.
