Storyline

After engaging in a sexual act with a stranger, J. Harper Lee, a detached and newly out-of-the closet young man, arrives to a soirée planned by his best friend, Annie. Throughout the night, as he catches up with close acquaintances and struggles to hold back his feelings for his straight friend, Danny, Harper agonizes to build a façade of belonging in a world that is not meant for him. As midnight approaches, Harper exploits himself in a brief sexual encounter to mitigate his loneliness and disconnection only to realize that he must come to terms with his identity in order to find his place in a hetero-normative world.

Self-indulgent navel gazing.
30 November 2020 | by CinemaSerfSee all my reviews

Paul Yen is "Harper" a young man who is completely infatuated with his straight best friend "Danny" (Ben Whalen). It all comes to a head (or, perhaps not) at a party when he loses it with his friend - when he sees him chatting up "Alice" and says plenty of things we suspect he may later regret. His first resolution is to call his sex buddy for some rough and ready respite in a car park, then off to his BFF Amanda Kathleen Ward ("Annie") who didn't know he was gay, but nonetheless offers him an unconditional shoulder to cry on as he engages in a rather maudlin, introspective emotional dump. He's not at all an engaging character, and his bitterness towards both "Danny" and his situation is quite tiresome to watch enfold in front of you. I'm sure it does happen in real life, but as a piece of cinema it's all just a bit dull.
