A funny and sweet little love story. --In2ItAustin

A quirky gay love story. --Austin Happenings

Product Description

ANGORA RANCH is a sweet, heartfelt, movie about love that transcends age, stereotypes and meddlesome family. While driving to a business meeting young and handsome Justin runs off the road to avoid a rabbit. Lucky for him he has ditched as Angora Ranch, a farm owned by hunk Jack, a man almost twice Justin's age. Just and Jack feel the heat between them immediately, while the issue of their difference in age slowly melts away they face another problem: each of their meddling fathers. Jack's dad is nosy, pushy and waiting for Jack to settle down. Justin's father is all business and never thinks his son will amount to anything. Justin and Jack slowly discover that each is what the other has been searching for all their lives, if only they can figure out what to do about their fathers.

4.0 out of 5 stars And now the cat is demanding residuals... December 21, 2006
Format:DVD
"Angora Ranch" is a sweetly low-key romantic movie that has lots of animals in it. There are rabbits, goats, horses and chickens (and the cat that managed to sneak into the dinner scene). But the romance is between two men who must overcome a different kind of animal: the paternal kind. Justin (Thomas Romano) is a 20-something cutie working for his father's advertising agency, a self-absorbed manipulator whom Justin can never satisfy. (And Daddy has a few secrets on the side.) Jack (Paul Bright, "Angora Ranch's" writer and director) is a gay widower who has a live-in father, Peter (Tim Jones, the movie's co-writer), that is trying to push "his gay son Jackson" into a relationship before he slips into total senility. A chance accident and a little of Peter's meddling drops Benny the Bunny squarely into the stew and a May/September romance begins in the suburbs of Austin, Texas.

While the movie is certainly not a slick affair (in the extras, Bright and Jones joke about how their budget was in "the thousands"), it does do several things the creators promise:

No tragic gay man dies of AIDS.

No screaming queen is running around disrupting things.

No men are just straight-acting guys claiming they're gay.

And most importantly - All gay male characters are actually played by gay men.

The acting is not going to get any Academy Award nominations, but that isn't why you're going to enjoy this. "Angora Ranch" is a delight for the many things it isn't. Non-hyperactive, not bitter or angry, not political (other than the general wink at gay marriage) and not aimed at the tweaker circuit coming-out crowd. This is the kind of movie I am comfortable showing to friends with dinner, and, I am going to project, feel comfortable with repeat viewings.

Justin is a gay man in his early 20's, working for his overbearing father's ad agency in Austin TX. On a trip to a rural area to meet with a client, his car gets stuck right in front of the "Angora Ranch" (2006), a rabbit ranch run by Jack and his father Peter. Although almost twice his age, Jack senses a mutual attraction with Justin, so Peter and the town's lady mechanic plot to get Justin to stay the night to give them a chance. Justin is too nervous about how his father will react to his having to postpone the meeting, and heads out to his meeting first thing in the morning, only to return when a stowaway bunny proves to be the key to the ad campaign. With the pressure off, Justin and Jack do hit it off nicely, until Justin's father makes an unexpected visit to rant about their age difference and "lifestyle", but loses his thunder when a secret from his own youth comes out.

The photography and production values are surprisingly good for a bare bones indie film shot directly on video. However, I didn't have to check the IMDB credits to know the cast was inexperienced, as EVERY actor in the film came off like a night of amateur theatre tryouts, with horrible overacting, emoting as if each line was Shakespeare, and sometimes even looking at the camera instead of the character they are speaking with. Thomas Romano as Justin was cute, but didn't really fit his character, and it is amazing that not ONE of the main characters in rural Texas had any trace of an accent. The screenplay (by director Paul Bright, who also played Jack) is sweet and charming, but more than a bit overdone and contrived. (However, it could have been worse; the extras divulge that the original concept was for this to be a MUSICAL!) DVD has "making of" featurette and some candid shots. Rate it 3 stars out of 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars charming & HOT love story September 15, 2006
Format:DVD
Got a chance to see this fun movie in Austin - I guess it was filmed in a small TX town nearby. The story is very mature, and I thought it was a fresh take on gay relationships. It is also very funny! One of my only criticisms is that the production budget seemed very low - maybe that's why the scenes sometimes look stiff and the acting feels a bit staged. Despite those flaws, I really had a great time watching this movie. Oh, and the young actor playing the lead is gorgeous - with a beautiful body and totally adorable smile!

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing January 8, 2007
Format:DVD
A refreshing, different, cute, and feel-good film. I admire the creators for having the guts to do something so original and with apparently a modest budget. I grow tired of typical Hollywood films that follow a standard formula and try to blast us out of complacency and boredom just so we notice that we exist.

It reminds me more of European films than those usually produced in the U.S. It's quirky, has depth, doesn't try to be something it isn't, and works well within the boundaries of the plot and circumstances. And the plot wasn't so predictable that I knew how it was going to work out in the end.

For those of us who are gay, it's obvious that the characters are (although I wasn't sure about the women characters), and that makes it even more of a treasure. It was believable.

I liked this film. It is certainly NOT the best one I've ever seen, but the story is well written and takes on a theme that is original and has a lot of warmth in it. As about every other reviewer has pointed out, the acting is not just great, and some of the scenes were a bit unbelievable. The towns people characters are corny and just a bit too spoofy, but that sad fact also gives it a light heartedness that was probably not fully intended. It does however add some appeal although I think it could have been made a whole lot better film with a little more professionalism and realism. Justin (Thomas Romano) swerves to miss a rabbit in the road and lands in the ditch in front of a farm house which just happens to be owned by a gay man twice his age. The plot begins, and the two quickly began bonding and eventually fall in love. Romano is not the greatest actor you'll ever watch but is quite adorable in looks and the way he carries himself. His older soon to be partner Jack is played by Paul Bright who also wrote and directed the film. The two "actors" both lack acting skills but manage to pull it off nonetheless. With a lot more work and practice, I feel that Romano probably has the ability within himself to act such a part well, but has not quite honed his acting skill. Bright would have directed a much better film had he cast someone else to play his role, and stuck to writing and directing. Perhaps the only believable actor was Tim Jones who was cast quite well in his part of Jack's senile father. Sadly he didn't live long after the film was released. This is WITHOUT DOUBT a low budget, ametuer production and with any other script would have made for a terrible film, however it somehow flows in spite of it's flaws and provides entertainment that the viewer isn't probably expecting.
