Excellent Australian short that I saw at the Provincetown Film Festival. An adorable little kid of about 7 or 8 (Keilan Grace) brings home a picture he drew with a phase indicating he likes another boy's "dik". His father (Patrick Brammall) freaks out while his mother (Alexa Ashton) calmly says it's just a phase he's going through that every boy goes through. Then they start discussing THEIR past same sex relationships and things quickly escalate out of control.
It may sound depressing and hard-hitting but it really wasn't! My audience was in hysterics over the dialogue. The script was sharp, on target and very VERY funny. The two actors were superb--they threw in just the right amount of anger and trying to understand. It leads up to a twist at the ending that was perfect. A wonderful short for adults--gay AND str8! There's no nudity in this at all but some of the language is VERY graphic about sexual acts so I think this would be off limits for kids. It wouldn't shock them at all--they just wouldn't understand it!
