45 Days Away from You
After a recent breakup with “a man who shall not be named,” young bachelor Rafael finds his romantic life spinning out of control. With a change of scenery in order, he sets out on journey of self-discovery – an adventure that will take him from Brazil to England, Portugal and Argentina. Along the way, he seeks the counsel of his nearest and dearest friends. There’s Julia, an amorous single actress trying to land her breakthrough role; Fabio, Rafael’s straight-boy buddy, who is trying to maintain a long-distance relationship; and Mayara, a dear friend who gave up a promising career in favor of marriage. Over the course of his 45-day trip, Rafael grows closer to the people in his life who really matter and learns that all it takes to mend a broken heart is time… and the support of a few good friends.
In this sexy, romantic, and uncomfortably chilling tale of love and deception from first time director Marcelo Briem Stamm, two men meet in a chat room but when they eventually meet in person and the sexual sparks are hot. While sex is satisfying and often, it is their collective problems with intimacy, trust and the fear of being hurt that make them hesitant to commit fully. As their relationship develops, both reveal secrets from their past but these revelations may be real, imagined or outright lies.
How long is an eternity? A few years, or as fast as the breaking of the waves at the rugged Baltic coast? Andreas and Martin (Mike Hoffmann and Mathis Reinhardt) have shared all the ups and downs of life… and now that their beloved young son has matured and moved out on his own, they have more free time to focus on themselves again. But when they are left alone with only themselves, will the spark still be there? A cautious approach to the traces of a long-term relationship, Paths is a remarkable achievement reminiscent of Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. It tells the full story of this central romance – a touching, deeply emotional warts-and-all examination of the deep, abiding love shared between two men, fathers and lovers. From the first kiss to the present, and everything in between.

But Luke, an athlete struggling through summer school, knows that his boyfriend needs to experience the world beyond their home.
