Storyline

Physical attractions appear to be the obvious explanation for two people to become a pair. But are they really the reflection of something sublime, everlasting or dare we say, spiritual? Do relationships start in the bedroom or in the heart? In this male love story, the bliss described by Joseph Campbell and sages throughout the millennia is a practical option for finding happiness. As the camera delves into the character's minds and actions we find fulfillment on both a physical and spiritual level. Written by Stagewright Films

Crazy Credits

Thank you to the late F. Gary Newton and to Players Ring, the wonderful theater he founded in Portsmouth, NH Your daring mission to produce original works for the stage has allowed writers who might otherwise never be heard to come before the public with their ideals and dreams. One of those dreams came to life in July 2005 when you produced the world premiere of JUST SAY LOVE. See more »

Flawed, but worth it.
15 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie may have its issues (the dialogue can be somewhat painful at times, as can the direction) but there are two big saving graces in this film that make it worth a watch: Matthew Jaeger and Robert Mammana. Both actors fit into their roles wonderfully and their chemistry feels very genuine; simple, natural, and therefore, it is easy to invest in their characters' main conflict - that is, the idea of love that transcends socially constructed sexual definitions.

The art direction is also fairly interesting - rather than the standard, the film is shot in a direct stage-to-film aesthetic - one set, dramatic lighting, and the simplicity works in it's favour, though it can seem heavy-handed at times.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Something different, with two amazing performances that will stay with you.
