One day, they stumble across some intriguing insider trading tips and start tapping a phone line to get even more. But when the stock tips turn into murder plots, the hapless men are unable to go to the police and soon find themselves in over their heads and flat out of luck. An impending wedding and sexual confusion round out the plot in this romantic comedy crime caper!
Everything is Free
Ivan (writer-director Brian Jordan Alvarez) has relocated to a coastal town in Colombia to focus on painting. After some time apart, his straight best friend Christian (Peter Vack) comes to visit along with his younger brother Cole (Morgan Krantz). The initial pleasantries of beach-side camping and late-night partying fade quickly – especially after Ivan and Cole start secretly sleeping together. When Christian finds out, the otherwise idyllic summer affair brings out difficult and surprising emotions in not just the three men, but also their diverse circle of expats and tourists. Frank and playful, Everything Is Free navigates gay cinema tropes with self-awareness, humor, gravity and a very modern sensibility.
Olivier and James (Simon Haycock and Hugo Bolton) are about to settle into a romantic break in the south of France when Caroline (Elly Condron), an old friend of James, unexpectedly crashes their getaway. At first, everything seems calm as they spend their time around the swimming pool and exploring the isolated village. Slowly however, Olivier grows more and more intrigued by Caroline… leading to potentially disastrous consequences for the young couple. Friendships are questioned and sexuality is tested in this tense, gorgeously-crafted relationship drama from European filmmaker Philippe Audi-Dor.
These Peculiar Days
These Peculiar Days tells the story of eight friends who graduate high school and celebrate by staying in a cabin in the woods. Just before the trip, Isabel (Sofia Sylwin) breaks up with Roman (Gerardo Del Razo) when she finds out he’s been cheating on her with Oscar (Carlos Hendrick Huber). When Roman tags along to try to win her back, it turns this pleasant weekend into a ticking time bomb that will be set off by their unstoppable sexual impulses. Soon, the lines between their sexuality begin to blur as allegiances and love affairs are quickly made and broken. An unabashedly erotic look at modern sexual fluidity between young adults from acclaimed writer-director Chucho E. Quintero.
