An arrogant queer guest staying at a bed and breakfast in the middle of nowhere, which is owned by a homophobic “Christian” is not exactly the recipe for a peaceful weekend. Combine the owner’s sexually confused son, the activist’s good-looking husband, and a menacing foreigner and you have the ingredients for a Hitchcockian tale of suspense, which leads to murder.
To celebrate winning their court case against Josh (Paul McGann), the owner of St. Jude B&B, husbands Marc (Tom Bateman) and Fred (Sean Teale) have returned for a weekend at the guesthouse. However, what begins as a battle of wits with Josh takes a darker turn after his teenage son Paul (Callum Woodhouse) surprises Fred with his passion. Rebuffed, Paul turns his focus on the Russian guest (James Tratas), a silent, muscular leatherman. Tension builds to a deadly encounter at a local cruising spot, and it’s not the outcome you’d expect.
Winner of “Best LGBT Feature” at the 2016 London Independent Film Festival, B&B is a twisty thriller that keeps you guessing, leaving you on the edge of your seat.
