Wonderfully engaging!
12 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

A well-developed story line with great and realistic character development. The writers obviously believed in these people, and the actors were given the chance to flesh them out for sure.

The people are interesting, (and handsome,) the scenery is great and diverse. The changing seasons really added to the overall feel of living with these people in their real lives. Nothing is forced, the director takes his time to allow you to grow with these people, to really understand who they are.

If you want to see a great gay-themed movie that steps outside the box, this will be the one to watch.
