Storyline

The Lottery is about 'Dreaming everyone does it' and how things between two married men go south the moment their life becomes consumed by the idea of winning the lottery. The story is told by a third person with an ultimate twist. This Chekhov inspired Tale forces them to face reality by showing the layers of our human condition. Nothing seems to be what it is but what it appears to be. Written by Anonymous

Witty and fun - Highly Recommended !!
17 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This Film was a real treat!

I don't see short films like this being made anymore, it reminds me of Wally White's fun movie about Gay Life in PTown ("Lie Down with Dogs") which was great to see at Gay Film Festivals when other films about gay men were not being made.

But this one is more contemporary than that -- the actors feel like a real couple in Manhattan in 2012. The locations are real and urban, (as well as some locations in upstate NY)... and the comedic acting and timing are fantastic.

It's nice too that it has the theme of Anton Chekhov's classic work of literature, "The Lottery" - great that the writer/director was able to use that theme but tie it into a contemporary gay male relationship and keep it a comedy.

It had me laughing and enjoying it all the way through - I highly recommend it!!
