Jess is a bohemian youth with secrets to hide from his shrewd parents. James feels trapped living with his irritable mother. After meeting for a sexual encounter, the two young men set off on a spontaneous road trip across rural Argentina to reunite with Jess' estranged brother. On their journey, they confront strange occurrences and engage in a ménage à trois affair that brings them closer. Their newly found affection grows, all while discovering a fresh vision of freedom and happiness. JESS & JAMES is a sexually charged road-trip movie, a love story, and a coming-of-age tale, set against the mythical landscape of the Argentinian Pampas.
Some smouldering passion underlies Jess & James a couple of young Argentine
gay 20 somethings who pick each other up in a Buenos Aires park and have one
of the most intense sexual scenes I've seen on film and that includes porn.
Both guys, Martin Karich and Nicolas Romero, are good looking as all get out
and the two set off on a road trip to find James's brother Tomas who they
think will be at least tolerant of them.
Some beautiful location photography of rural Argentina, the legendary Pampas plains where the guys travel on the road trip is the second best feature
of Jess & James. The rest is the intensity of Karich and Romero.
A must for a gay film festival.
