Storyline

At age 55, Philadelphia CEO Paul Grecco decides to make changes in his life, including the sale of his company, and that terrifies him. He was right to be terrified, because the new owners force him to retire early. His sister, Elise decides that the best things for him is a puppy she has gotten him, and dating the women that Elise sets Paul up with. It's funny though, but Paul finds himself disinterested in the women Elise fixes him up with, and oddly fascinated by a young man he meets while walking his new puppy in the park across from his condo. Paul has never really thought about dating or sex before, with anyone, so now what should he do? Written by trivwhiz

Paul: [voiceover] My day starts at 6:30 AM. I don't need an alarm clock. I wake up every day and dress for my role as CEO. That means fifty tailored suits at all times. Right now I have fifty-four. Dress shirts - very important: one-twenty-eight; crisp white - always best; an occasional pale yellow or blue. Now, a tie says everything about a man. Silk. Ties should only be silk: eighty stripes; a dozen solids. Oh, and one rogue paisley my sister bought me in Palm Beach - probably hammered ...

Beautiful Idea
15 November 2012 | by NSquarticsurfaceSee all my reviews

I've been waiting for this movie for a long time. It is far from stellar execution, but certainly not the worst for a low budget film. The script could be cleaned up a bit. The acting isn't great and a few shots could have used a few more takes to make them more real and believable.

Overall, I can't complain about the total experience. The main content of the film should be familiar to absolutely anyone who has been apart of a gay relationship. The reality is that different people are at different stages of coming out given any couple. This puts a strain on the relationship.

This movie explores how this can evolve and how both sides are responsible for the problems caused by having a justified unwillingness to compromise on how public the relationship should be. The pacing may feel slow to people used to blockbusters, but it suits the film just right as it lets the relationship develop and breathe at the appropriate speed considering the circumstances.

Maybe in today's age this is becoming less of an issue, but any gay couple should easily relate to and find real truth in this unique romance.
