review by
Mike Haberfelner

It's Damien's (Brandon Karson) first day in college, and he has freshman written all over him - so much so that Shane (Rocc), who was supposed to be his mentor, has no problems getting him into bed. Shane invites Damien to stay with him in his apartment for a week, as his roommate's out of town and his dorm room isn't ready anyways. Little did Damien know that Shane would demand to be repaid in sexual favours - but then again, Damien's still young and his hormones are racing, so he tends to invariably give in. But then Shane's roommate Max (Darren Johnson) returns and Damien has to move out. But Shane demands for their sex dates to continue, otherwise he's to smear his reputation. Anyways, Damien has to move off campus as his dad is unable to pay rent for the dorm, so he moves in with his aunt Monica (Mimi Fletcher), a very nice woman but also a pretty pious church lady. Things are very good with them as long as Monica's son Kendall (Rahim Brazil) isn't around - as Kendall was the first man Damien has ever had sex with. Eventually, Kendall returns though, but he's a somehow changed man. Sure, she has come out to his mum, but she accepts him as he is but forces him to not tell anyone else, fearing for her own reputation in church. But Kendall wants to become a reverend now - which doesn't change the fact that he's still gay and has an affair with the church band's drummer Max (Darren Johnson) - who eventually comes out himself and is promptly fired from the band. Meanwhile, Damien's reputation is saved by none other than Shane's roommate Max, and he and Damien soon find themselves in a relationship. Eventually though, Max organizes a birthday party for Damien, but insists for Shane to come as well - something that could easily result in disaster ...


A very nice ensemble drama that works quite as well because everything comes across as rather subdued, it's slice of life rather than larger than life and even with bits of humour thrown in - especially when Damien breaks the fourth wall telling us what he "should" do -, and so despite the undeniable "gay" theme, at least parts of the movie are relatable to anyone - mileage will vary of course. This is of course also helped by very natural and grounded performances as well as a suitably subtle directorial effort, and the film's tendency to entertain rather than preach - which all resuilts in a film well worth a watch.
