Two young men find their seemingly solid relationship threatened when temptations and unease begin to pull them apart. During one hot summer, blond, pot-smoking and dealing Kurt (Kyle Wigent) and cute, but moody grocery store clerk Paul (Tanner Rittenhouse) begin a committed relationship. Best pals, roommates and lovers, they have an amazing rapport. But when rich-kid Kevin (Adam Fane) enters the picture with romantic designs on Kurt, an unsatisfied longing is exposed – threatening their love in the process. A richly textured examination of gay male relationships, In Bloom is a warm, funny, intelligent, sharply-written, painfully honest, well-acted drama.
Get ready for a sexually explicit, highly erotic new drama from Scud, the acclaimed Hong Kong filmmaker behind Amphetamine, Permanent Residence, City Without Baseball and Love Actually… Sucks. Voyage centers on a young psychiatrist who embarks on a lone journey from Hong Kong, along the coast of Southeast Asia, to overcome his depression. On the sea, he records stories of people departed from this world prematurely, and reflects on the sad experiences he encountered with former patients. Meanwhile, what awaits him on the shore is the ultimate irony of life. This director always pushes boundaries and a whole lot of male nudity and explicit sex scenes… and we’re quite happy to report that Voyage is no exception. Stream it now and enjoy!
Based on first-time filmmaker Mark Blane’s own life, Cubby tells a funny and surreal tale of a young and woefully immature gay illustrator (played by Blane himself) who makes his way from his mom’s garage in Indiana to Brooklyn without a clue how to sustain himself or foster basic relationships. Alone and penniless, Mark wedges his way into his old college roommate’s crammed apartment, taking a job as a part-time babysitter. Struggling to bond with his temperamental flatmates and comically ill-equipped to even respond to flirtations from a cute neighborhood boy, Mark finds a sweet and unusual kinship in two individuals: the energetic six-year-old he babysits who ignites his creativity and a mystical leather daddy (Christian Patrick) who becomes a spiritual guide.
How long is an eternity? A few years, or as fast as the breaking of the waves at the rugged Baltic coast? Partners Andreas and Martin (Mike Hoffmann and Mathis Reinhardt) have shared all the ups and downs of life. Now that their beloved young son (played as a young child by Cai Cohrs and as a college-aged young adult by Tom Bottcher) 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. Audiences are invited into Andreas and Martin’s most touching and intimate moments – from the first kiss to the present, and everything in between.
