A delightful bromance
17 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director Andrew Nackman crafts a very engaging and moving portrait of a small town bromance as a car mechanic comes out to his unsuspecting friends. Adam (Evan Todd) and childhood friend Chris (Parker Young) are the front and center of this bromance as Chris attempts to reconcile and engage his buddy Adam in helping him find true love. Very comedic dating scenarios turn powerful additives to a story that feeds on the feelings & trepidation of both men as they stumble and awkwardly deal with one another during this trying time of their friendship. Their love is unconditional, sometimes messy, as they don't quite know how to share or communicate their feelings. But this is what makes this bromance so much more charming. On many occasions during the film, you feel the love both men share for each other bursting out of the screen with sometime as little as a look or the withholding of words. The acting is powerful, and stirring causing a yearning and hoping that both Chris & Adam would find each other instead of someone else as Chris helps Adam find an appropriate mate. The other drinking buddies Ortu (Jon Gabrus) and Nick (Chord Overstreet) really try their darndest not to embarrass themselves in an attempt to camouflage their homophobic fears to comic results. Fourth Man Out is a breath of fresh air for a story that has been told many times before in many different languages, however writer Aaron Dancik throws you several curve-balls throughout the film that unhinge a deep seeded desire to see Chris reconcile with Adam on another level as other small town issues surrounding Adam's coming out resolve themselves to a satisfying final act. A beautiful film, splendidly shot with outstanding performances from a very capable cast making Fourth Man Out an unforgettable film.
