Just Came Out: Horseplay

Horseplay, the new feature from prolific filmmaker Marco Berger, takes place during a scorching Argentine summer, following a group of testosterone-charged male friends who get together at a luxury villa to enjoy a little vacation. They’re soon drinking, partying hard, making videos together… and testing one another’s boundaries.

A rare mix of homophobia and horseplay come together to create a wildly homoerotic atmosphere. Under the surface, jealousy and violence begin to emerge. A twisted triangle of friends – a repressed gay man, a secret bisexual boy and a homophobe – will push tensions to the limit.

As with much of Berger’s work – he previously helmed films liked The Blonde One, Young Hunter, Taekwondo and AbsentHorseplay expertly amplifies the homoerotic undercurrents of frat-style male friendships, exploring his characters’ toned physiques as much as their inner thoughts. While the surface of the film offers a wealth of hunky eye-candy, it also doubles as an intelligent, challenging and sometimes shocking critique of sexual misconduct and toxic masculinity.
