Well-done
13 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In New Zealand an Orthodox Jewish man named Jacob (Rudi Vodanovich) is mentored by an older man named Andrew (Alexander Campbell). Then Jacob discovers Andrew is gay and his obnoxious estranged lover Charles (Richard Lambeth) comes to visit. Things go out of control and Jacob soon discovers Andrew's true feelings for him.

Well-done short. It deals with the subject matter in a sensitive restrained manner. Also the acting is spot on. But the script falters in two spots--it makes Andrew into a saint and Charles into a complete jerk. They're TOO black and white for me to empathize...or believe. But Jacob is thoroughly believable and it's quite moving at the end. However it ends quite abruptly just when it looks like it was leading up to something. Stil this is well-done and worth catching.
