Curtis Edward Jackson
Chris and RJ reunite five years after coming out to their families and their church as gay men, where the factors that led to their separation are revealed as they mourn the death of their mutual friend Rodney.
When Dean, a graphic designer in Los Angeles, notices a sudden change in his vision, an ex-love from 15 years earlier contacts him unexpectedly in hopes of rekindling their relationship. When the two meet at a vacation house in the desert near Joshua Tree, secrets are revealed and passions rekindled that threaten to upend both of their lives. Forty-eight hours later, neither will ever be the same.
Brilliant, poignant and wistful glimpse at the reality of lost love regained
I just saw this at a festival and was floored by the execution in every aspect of this movie. The script is smart and engaging, poignant, funny and realistic, working on many levels. The actors are amazing, absolutely believable over a span of fifteen years, and despite the small cast it never feels stagey, claustrophobic or forced. It is brilliantly shot and gorgeous to look at, with production values that boggle the mind considering the budget, and apparently a very tight shooting schedule. Can't recommend it highly enough. I was going to give it nine stars (just because, I guess) but thinking back on it as I write this, I can't think of any reason it doesn't deserve ten. Great film.
