Storyline

Lawrence Jefferies is a guy who's found the flow in his life; he knows how to trust his gut and follow his instincts. Driven by a loving curiosity and strong sense of adventure, he lives his life with a freedom and confidence most men envy. Hugh Greerey, by contrast, lives under the influence of his self-consciousness, struggling to connect to a deeper sense of who he really is. There is a power and intensity to Hugh's spirit which he fights to hold in check until the two meet by happenstance and a defining moment between them opens one into his humanity and propels the other into his soul. Written by Bridget O'Rourke

Well done
18 June 2009 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

Two straight men have sex and talk about it after. One likes it better than the other and they both talk about their feelings to each other and try to convince the other that they're right.

Not explicit--the sex is heard not seen and there is the briefest flash of male nudity. This is well-acted by the two leads and the script is just great. I'm gay but I've talked to straight men about gay sex and this is EXACTLY how they responded and acted. This couldn't have been easy to act out but the two men go at this full force and are incredible. It also has a very sweet ending. I was expecting a depressing ending but it didn't have that. Well worth seeing.
