Must See Film
20 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First I want to say that I will not give away any spoilers in my review. This film, as well as director Paul Bright's other films, is an alternative to the crop of gay themed films that are out there. Abrupt Decision has a complete story line, good acting, believable characters and not filled with a bunch of non acting eye candy. The story revolves around the main character Denis, played by the wonderful Steve Callahan, who life seems to be spiraling out of control. He loses his job, his relationship is falling apart and his mother is ill. When his life seems to be at its lowest point he finds his true passion in life. As usual, Paul Bright tells a complete story that doesn't leave the viewer scratching their heads. I highly recommend this film for anyone looking for a gay themed film that doesn't revolve around the typical clichés that dominate gay cinema. You will not be disappointed.
