This ripped-from-the-headlines drama covers the early rise of gay porn headliner Sean Paul Lockhart a.k.a. Brent Corrigan, before his falling out with the producer who made him famous. When Sean decides he'd be better off a free agent, a cash-strapped pair of rival producers aim to cash in by any means possible.
Real-life Luzerne County, Pennsylvania judge -- Michael Conahan -- signed paperwork in 2006 changing the real-life victim Bryan Kocis' charge from sex assault to corruption of minors. As a result of that change, Kocis was not required to be registered as a Megan's Law offender and Cobra Video commenced. Conahan later pleaded guilty to federal racketeering charges in relation to the infamous "Kids for Cash" scandal, and is serving 17.5 years in prison for other charges. The Luzerne County scandal, involving Kocis' judge, of sentencing kids to overly-harsh sentences to an out of state facility for cash kickbacks was used in a Law and Order: Special Victims Unit episode 10.20 "Crush". Actress Swoozie Kurtz played the Conahan role of the crooked judge. See more »
I watched because I like crime shows. This one was set in the gay porn industry and a young man (very well played by eye candy Garrett Clayton) made famous by it and his unscrupulous producer. The movie was combination story about the young man's ascent in the porn industry, murder of one of the protagonists, a rival producer and his lover. 2 central plots around each of the 2 producers lives that converge at the murder.
I thought all the male actors were good in this especially Clayton that is convincing, starting the movie off as a naive youth and in the end maturing into a clever man - nicely done. It was off beat for sure but I liked it.
I think male nudity would have been gratuitous. Franco held in balance the crime story and male sexuality well in this movie.
