Farleigh Knock (Thure Riefenstein) is wildly successful. An famous interior designer and host of a successful reality show, Farleigh has great taste and uses his money to ensure that he’s surrounded by beautiful things. One of those “things” is Dennis (Jon Paul Phillips), Farleigh’s handsome, much-younger boyfriend – who lives the high-life thanks to his youth and good looks. There’s just one problem: no one stays young forever. As his thirtieth birthday approaches, his benefactor whispers those six little words every “kept boy” dreads hearing: “Get a job… or get out.” Soon enough, Dennis finds himself being replaced by a sexy, younger pool boy. No longer a kept boy, he finds himself a lost man – learning, slowly, that it’s never too late to become the man you should have been all along… and that, sometimes, living the good life with a sugar daddy can be bittersweet.
Eric Coyle (Slade Pearce) is a nineteen-year-old male hustler who has secured early release from prison by informing on his regular drug dealer Bennie (Joe Ricci). Once he’s out of the slammer, he immediately goes about trying to reassemble the aspects and people of his former life, including his girlfriend, Heather (Julia Anne Severance), former pimp, Dolores (Robyne Richards) and his best client, Tommy (Daniel Kapinga). Desperate to create his idea of a family, if only even for a day, he manages to trick Tommy into getting him an apartment, a used car and a job. Things quickly spin out of control, however, and his past life begins to haunt him when his ex-drug dealer – the man he informed on – is brought in for questioning.
Bigger Like Me
Though it isn’t actually a gay movie, there’s something we think you’ll enjoy here (if only the nudity). Bigger Like Me: The Extended Director’s Cut (titular pun intended) tells the story of straight comedian Greg Bergman‘s obsessive quest to enlarge his penis. After several failed experiments using pills, pumps and other so-called methods, Bergman travels to a surgeon in Tijuana, Mexico, where he risks absolutely everything (including his marriage) to fulfill what he sees as his destiny. There is no room for “small men” in this hysterically funny and frequently disturbing look at one straight dude’s dark descent into phallocentric delirium.
And Then There Was Eve
Alyssa (Tania Nolan), a successful photographer, wakes one morning to find her apartment ransacked and her husband mysteriously missing. Left without even a photograph to offer the police, she turns to his colleague Eve (Rachel Crow), a talented trans jazz pianist with flirtatious charm and disarming grace. Eve helps her confront her husband’s longtime struggle with depression, and to, over time, accept his absence. While getting to know this woman through such unusual circumstances, Alyssa is surprised to find herself falling in love again. And Then There Was Eve is a stylish romance build around an intriguing mystery.
Having left England for a romantic escapade in the south of France, Olivier and James (Simon Haycock and Hugo Bolton) invite their friend Caroline (Elly Condron) along at the very last minute. She was just left by her long-time boyfriend and is in need of a change of scenery. The trio arrives in a little provincial village, somewhat cut off from the world. Though everything seems calm between the pool, sunshine and a village visit, Oliver finds himself more and more intrigued by Caroline. A tension of sexual jealousy and possessiveness soon escalates between the three.
