review by
Mike Haberfelner

A year ago, when staying at Josh's (Paul McGann) b&b, Marc (Tom Bateman) and Fred (Sean Teale) were refused a double bed just because they were a gay couple while Josh was a devout Christian. Since then, Marc has sued Josh, actually won ... and since Marc is something of a sore winner, he and Fred come back to Josh's b&b just so Marc can rub it right in - and is in for a bit of a defeat as Josh has since removed all double beds from his b&b, so on the grounds of equality nobody having a double bed, whether straight or hetero, married (like Marc and Fred) or unmarried is treated alike - as in NO double bed. However, Marc soon finds out that Josh's teenaged son Paul (Callum Woodhouse) is actually gay, and he ponders about using that fact to torture their host with ... when a Russian appears at the place who doesn't speak any English but whose fixed stare seems to spell gay basher in broad letters, and his many rune-like tattoos don't make things much better. However, Paul seems to be drawn to him, and even shows him to some local cruising areas. This has especially Fred concerned who has tagged along with Marc out of love and not out of spite for Josh, and now perceives lives shattered based on what might and might not happen. And all of this culminates in tragedy and ultimately murder - but this murder is where the problems only start ...

 

Of course, most people will identify B&B mostly with its gay content, and probably judge it based on that - which is a shame, as the film is just a really well-written thriller that really manages to build up suspense the old-fashioned (but still very effective) way, and that's carried by some well fleshed-out characters and first rate performances, set in suitably atmospheric locations. And the ending will definitely surprise one!

Totally worth a look!
