2009, United States
In his feature debut, gay writer/director Kyle Patrick Alvarez offered up this funny, thoughtful and sexy story of a shy, hopelessly romantic writer’s attempt to turn phone sex into a loving relationship. Cutie-pie Brian Geraghty (“The Alienist,” “Boardwalk Empire,” The Hurt Locker) stars as Davy, a scruffy, socially-awkward young nerd who has never had a meaningful romantic relationship. When he gets a strange, unexplained call from a woman named Nicole, who uses her sultry voice and graphic imagination to seduce him, something is awakened. Our lonely hero becomes infatuated with his new mysterious dream girl. As their relationship develops, Davy becomes hopelessly obsessed with meeting the reluctant Nicole in person – alienating friends, family and other romantic prospects in the process. On a shoestring budget, using few actors, realistic dialog and some truly impressive long takes, Alvarez (who went on to direct C.O.G., The Stanford Prison Experiment and multiple episodes of the Netflix series “13 Reasons Why”) crafts an honest, emotional and thoroughly engrossing mystery.
