A bittersweet and heartfelt story about going back. In the twenty-four hours before their 20th high school reunion, five friends, a younger brother and a mysterious photojournalist are reunited by determined Mayor Margaret to remember the good times of 1981
The well-ordered life of Dylan Thomas, a high-priced male escort, goes into moral free-fall beginning with the night he impulsively takes home a young woman he finds passed out drunk on a sidewalk. A sad little stray cat in a Lycra dress and Prada shoes, Allison Campbell is looking for security or love, and she may not know the difference. While Dylan plies his trade in swank hotels, a tentative domestic relationship with seemingly homeless Allison evolves, based on the illusion that neither of them has a past. Voyeurism is the dramatic strategy and the lure for this story.Written by
This fine (...excellent, fresh, Dogme style) film deserves to be seen.
Having seen many of the films made in the Dogme style I wasn't terribly excited to see "Converging With Angels." From the other films I had never been satisfied. "The Celebration" was exciting film making in parts, but it wasn't much as a whole. Its' sense of realism was false which left me feeling empty and let down. But "..Angels," is a beautifully mastered balancing act. The subject matter is interesting and could have easily been cheapened in this post-Tarantino era. Sorenson and his fine cast (especially the two leads Robert Tobin & Melissa Muniz) bring such a true sense of maturity, loss, loneliness and heartbreak that you believe their story. Not many of us have delved into the gigolo profession but we (as an audience) have no trouble relating to the Dylan character. I know I'm not stating this well, BUT what I'm trying to say is that, "Converging With Angels" deserves to be seen. This is honest, at times uncomfortable but true and fresh filmmaking. I think the filmmakers have a bigger audience out there than they realize. SOMEONE TAKE NOTICE who has the power to get this film out there! Otherwise the rest of us will just have to seek it out....and we will SEEK IT OUT. "Converging With Angels" is an all around class act.
