Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Both original and incredibly romantic, Redwoods tells the story of an already-partnered man whose love is tested when a mysterious drifter passes through his small Northern California town. Everett (Brendan Bradley) and Miles (Tad Coughenour) are in a comfortably platonic relationship, which is held together by raising their son. While his family travels out of town, introverted Everett finally has time to himself that is until Chase (Matthew Montgomery), a striking writer, pulls up in front of his house. Shot amidst ancient Redwoods, David Lewis (Rock Haven) film is a stunning ode to the power of love.

Whaddya know... a gay-themed movie where no one comes out, no one is in drag, no one gets beaten up and no one has AIDS. For that alone, "Redwoods" deserves at least a star or two.

The story centers around Everett (Brendan Bradley), a late-20s guy who has found himself in a very comfortable, but horribly static, life in small-town Northern California. His seven-year partnership with Miles (Ted Coughenour) has eroded to that way-too-common place where love (or lack thereof) is expressed by which coupon to use at the store and who will scrub the mold in the shower. The only life left in the relationship is in the form of their son, Billy (Caleb Dorfman), a special needs child who demands much of their attention.

It's clear from the onset that Everett is miserable with the current state of affairs, but his love for Billy prevents him from actually doing or saying anything to the cold and neglectful Miles. So, like many people, he shuts up, puts up and trundles along without rocking the boat.

Miles and Billy leave for a week to visit Miles' parents in Seattle. Right on cue, a handsome stranger appears on Everett's cul-de-sac, hopelessly lost and looking for directions... it's Chase (Matthew Montgomery), a writer from Minnesota who has come to redwood country to get inspiration for his latest novel.

The sparks between Everett and Chase are immediate. Soon, as this is a small town, the inevitable not-so-chance meeting occurs. A friendship grows. Everett becomes more and more conflicted about his feelings for Chase until it all finally uncorks into a fairly well done love scene. Of course, this just makes matters worse for the love-starved Everett...

Where to start?

First off, this is one of the finest gay films I have ever seen! It is romantic, poignant, humorous, uplifting, sad, involving, and a totally thought-provoking, engrossing film that sucks you in from the first scene and does not let the viewer go until the surprisingly haunting ending!

The main character, Everett, is in a long-term go-with-the-flow relationship with his husband Miles. The two of them are raising a young boy and their relationship seems to be in a rut. While Miles and Billy (their son) are away on a family trip, Through chance, Everett meets Chase, a writer who is lost (in more ways than one).

Like the best of Charles Dickens' plot elements, coincidence plays a part in the two meeting not once, but twice and from there a poignant love story evolves and sweeps us, the viewer away.

Everett, a very moral man, yet dissatisfied with where life is leading finally succumbs to his feelings that have been building for Chase throughout the film.

Where he and Miles are a calm center of a storm, Everett (once he gives into his feelings) and Chase are a passionate hurricane! The film builds to a crescendo and leads to a surprising ending that I did not see coming (make sure you have a hankie ready). The acting and directing is awesome. I think this is now my favorite Matthew Montgomery film. He gets better and better with each movie!

Each moment feels honest and true! If this movie is a low budget film, its honesty and serene setting certainly does not show! The small town setting in northern California is beautiful.. the redwood forests seems the perfect setting for such a wondrous love story.

Needless to say, I cannot recommend this film highly enough. Kudos to the cast, its production crew and writer as this is a nearly perfect love story!

But it now! You will not regret it!

I found this to be a very touching film. I was looking for something realistic and in touch with my own journey. The acting, lighting and sound were all very good, placing it above many other gay films. The only thing I wish were different was that they hadn't settled for the practical and went for love. Great film, will watch it over again soon.

Great setting, pretty people, reasonable acting and a realistic story line! But it stuck close to the typical gay movie ending: SOMBODY HAS TO DIE!

Why can’t gay lovers have happy endings, and go off into the sunset like straight folks do....?

Although there was the obvious predictable parts to this movie, the acting was great n dead on! For those who like to release some tears, and at the same time say, why not me! this is a great Passionate, Powerful, Upsetting, movie! Plays all the right cords.... So hopeless nerdy and dorky romantics this is the movie.

This is a very heart wrenching, beautiful love story set in the amazing redwoods country. Everett (Brendan Bradley) meets Chase (Matthew Montgomery) while his partner of 7 years is away for a week.
A fairy-tale romance and an explosive sex scene ensues; Everett is much more suited to be partnered by Chase than he is with his partner Miles who is over controlling, and the spark has obviously gone out of the relationship.
I would love to say a lot about where all this ends, but you will have to see the film for yourself for that. If it was up to me, I would have sent the ending back to the writer for a rewrite. But don’t be put off; this film is definitely worth watching as it is.
