Editorial Reviews

Morgan is the inspiring story of Morgan Oliver, a young athlete determined that a bicycle accident that left him paralyzed will not change him. He takes a chance on love when he meets Dean Kagen on a basketball court. Dean helps Morgan train for the same race in which he had his accident. But when he sees that Morgan will risk everything to win, Dean walks out. Left alone to face the race and demons that caused his accident, Morgan teeters between what he needs and what he wants. Can he find the strength to pull himself back up again?

Good twists and turns.

A really unique spin on a gay love story, with a recently disabled man falling for someone who has difficulty connecting.

This film is very touching and at the same time seems realistic and real.

Morgan Oliver is recently paraplegic, T-10 incomplete, as a result of a bicycle accident during a race he was competing in. He has recently returned home from rehab and he's now unemployed and living on disability, adjusting to his new life and the new adaptive setup in his apartment. His preferred way to pass the time is drinking beer and watching television, and the main events of the film begin when he runs out of beer and neither his mother, Peg, nor his best friend, Lane, will enable him any further. They refuse to buy him more beer, forcing him to leave the house on his own. It is during his trip out to replenish his beer supplies that he meets Dean Kagen, which is where our romance begins.

The drama unfolds once Morgan decides he wants to compete in the wheelchair division of the very same race that cost him his ability to walk, where Morgan, because of his hyper-competitive nature, caused an accident involving himself and two other competitors on a very dangerous part of the course. This same hyper-competitive nature leads to his doing things he ought not to be doing and refusing to listen to reason from Dean, his doctor, or anyone else.

This film is a journey for Morgan where he must confront his past and his present, and he must find a way to learn from his mistakes and move forward. This is also, to a lesser extent, a journey for Dean in finding a new way to live following the death of his mother. But most of all, it is a romance featuring a paraplegic romantic lead, which is something that is very rare to find. And better yet, it is a romance that delves into the issue of disabled sexuality, which we almost never see on film. And Morgan is pretty cute, too, so that helps.

I've read somewhere that the "perfect" relationship is one where each person thinks as much about the other person and their concerns and feelings, as they do about their own. It's a tricky business when the light of a possible new and great relationship comes up unexpectedly, in the midst of major issues facing each partner.

In this well acted drama, both men find something new and potentially wonderful in the development of their relationship. The subject of the film concerns how they work out their relationship and deal with issues they came into the relationship with.

Both actors give fine performances that ring true, and the development of the characters throughout the film is a realistic portrayal how couples learn to be more open after significant losses in their lives have shut them down, for a period of time.

The drama that they create to deal with their losses is probably necessary for their resolution. Catharsis is usually important in dealing with all the pent up feelings that major losses involve and coming out the other side intact. The film does a nice job of dealing with all these issues and it would be easy to see, when things settle down, that these two men would have a relationship for many years to come.

Format: DVD
The first half of this movie is very good, refreshingly low-key and original, with a believable, slowly-developing romance between Morgan and Dean in Inwood, the far northern tip of Manhattan almost never seen in movies. The relaxed, small-town, almost rural character of the place is a welcome change from the frantic pace, hard-edged greed and shallow posturing that dominate in the more fashionable areas downtown where most movies are made. The city used to have many such low-key neighborhoods that we never see in movies, so it's good to see this one while it still exists.

Unfortunately, the movie sort of disintegrates in its second half. Producers Akers and Berg must have thought a simple love story would be too boring, so they shoehorned a boatload of dramatic tension into the gentle, lovely story and ruined it. There are no gay-beating thugs, which is the stock drama-injector in gay movies, and its absence here is a great relief; but the absurd and highly annoying behavior of the main character is even more infuriating in a different, if much less hackneyed, way.

A consistent delight throughout the movie, though, is Jack Kesy's gentle but powerful performance as Dean. He is unfailingly marvelous... so good that he makes the movie worth watching despite its significant flaws and Leo Minaya's much more heavy-handed and less believable performance as Morgan.

As a former competitive runner, laid low with lung problems, I know the agony Morgan is going through. Having just helped my husband, David, die, I also know how fundamental issues of trust come up between those who are able bodied and those who are differently abled. It is a difficult road and this movie presents one possible scenario for what might happen. The acting isn't great, the writing is just mediocre , but on the whole it actually adds to the film. I will see it again and have bought a copy for my wheelchair bound friend to see what he thinks.
