(USA 2014; 89 min.)
Director: Joey Kuhn
An impressive cast of young talent led by Jonathan Gordon (the 2007 film God’s Pocket) and Haaz Sleiman (TV’s Nurse Jackie) sizzles in this erotic and arresting film.
Gordon portrays budding artist Charlie who is obsessed with his friend Sebastian (Jason Ralph), so much so that he is compelled to repeatedly paint portraits of him. After his father is jailed for a financial scandal, a lonely Sebastian welcomes Charlie into his luxurious Manhattan home. Unfortunately, Charlie’s attempt to use their cohabitation to trigger a romance is thwarted by Charlie’s ambivalence and the appearance of seasoned and attractive concert pianist Tim (Sleiman) enters the picture.
Critics and fans at festivals across the country have commented on the sultry chemistry of these stars and the emotional depths that the film explores.
