“Rent” star Anthony Rapp (yep, he’s the same guy who recently outed Kevin Spacey as a total creep, but he’s also an accomplished, talented film and theater veteran) gives a tremendously powerful performance in this dark drama about grief and an unfortunate love triangle. He plays Brad O’Connor, a married, “straight” family man who, after the tragic death of his young son, becomes entangled in a chaotic and passionate online love affair with Yenny, a young Jamaican cyber buddy (played by Jimmy Brooks). With both Brad and his wife Marcia (De’Adre Aziza) seeking solace in destructive ways, their lives and relationships are pushed to the brink, culminating in terrible confrontations that no one can avoid. Directed by John G. Young, the same acclaimed filmmaker behind Parallel Sons and the little-seen, but terrific, Rivers Wash Over Me, bwoy has earned terrific reviews. Esteemed critic Amy Taubin said it’s “beautifully written and directed, with rich character twists and turns… This film is outstanding for all the right reasons.”
