Nice Period Piece
10 November 2014 | by donduncan69See all my reviews

I have to admit that I wasn't sure as to what I was watching. I never read the synopsis first. I like to be surprised. We start out in a beautiful field with our two leads, obviously very much in love and free. We can tell by the costuming that this isn't modern day. It turns out to be in the early 1800's, although it isn't relevant to the story. What follows is a peek into a very romantic love story. No action, very low key, but enthralling nonetheless. Albeit, with a supernatural twist, described as a "ghost story".

It's nice to see a gay film where the obstacle isn't any type of homophobic lunatic, or a person or couple struggling with self-loathing. Just a beautiful couple in "anytime" and "anyplace" faced by a darkness of the supernatural type. I won't go into the supernatural element and give the plot away. I'll just say that it literally had me sitting on the edge of my seat! The film was done on a low-budget, but I don't believe the film makes it evident. It's very lush with a beautiful soundtrack. It's a very small, but excellent cast. The two leads have amazing chemistry and are easy to watch. There are sex scenes, but done in good taste. It feels romantic and real. Not something concocted between actors that is supposed to look real, while you know the actors are choreographed to the hilt. The two leads, Darren Bransford and Henry Regan are very easy-on-the-eyes. Bransford playing the handsome, good-looking, and rugged Frank, and Regan playing the adorable, handsome Theo.

If you want a fast-paced film with lots of story, then this probably isn't your cup of tea. However, if you like to just lay back and watch an enjoyable slice of life from another perspective. If you want to see two handsome, masculine men who are totally in love with and support each other--with a slight supernatural twist chasing them, then should be a great film for you! I highly recommend it!
