I was pleasantly surprised with this video. It was pretty obvious that most of the video script was taken directly from the stage play. Although the "extra" characters were good, the video is about the three men who make up a family. While I enjoyed all of them, the man in the wheelchair was particularly compelling.
There is no nudity, and what sex there is is only talked about (but not in graphic detail). The language is adult, but not offensive. The scenery and the shots of the ocean from Malibu are really pretty transistions between the scenes. I'll probably end up buying it because it has stuck with me.

This movie is a classic example of superb script writing teamed with powerful actors.
A very well told story about coming of age in and coming to grips with an extended family of eccentric somewhat dysfunctional people.
The two main characters are a gay couple, but the story could be told about any combination of people dealing with their own set of relationship disconnects.

This movie stars the original play-write, filmed in a simple and believable setting, no distraction from over dressed sets or overly pretty actors. This whole production was put together to feature the script writing...very well done.

This film, based on a play, treats the subject of the dynamics of a gay family. A gay couple is having problems. One member of the couple has a son he does not know about. The son comes to stay with him and his lover for a while. Tensions build as the couple and the son learn to cope with one another and with their problems. The film tells a very solid story with characters that are honest. They are never "jerks."

The acting is sometimes over the top for film -- it is more appropriate for a play. Nevertheless, the story is a good one and I found myself crying as the characters begin to care more and more for one another. The film is that raw emotionally. In spite of my tears, I do not think this film is a "tear jerker."

Though it has flaws, I recommend this film for anyone interested in gay family dynamics.

A new take on what makes a family and how that change can actually help more than just a few.

Most low budget gay movies are complete crap, where they clearly aren't trying very hard to put out a quality product. This one is an exception. It's clearly a labor of love. The writing and acting are mostly very good, and the plot is interesting. It's not without its faults, however. The audio sometimes suffers from bad microphone practice. The direction and acting are sometimes more suited to stage than screen (verging on melodramatic). But these problems are easily overlooked in exchange for the opportunity to watch a good quality gay movie.

How does a gay actor accept his straight, teenage son into his life when he didn't even know he had a son? Can that angry, upset young man learn that love comes from the heart, whether your father or his partner are gay or straight? A mix of lives under one roof becomes a caldron for an explosive ending.

This is a film that gives the audience a small glimpse of an all-too-real, true family life. The entangelment of their lives makes all the characters very dramatic and quite emotional at times. To try to describe the story line would be a total disservice to the film's theme. You have to see this film in order to understand its vastly complex and complicated message. LIFE CAN NOT ONLY BE COMPLEX AND COMPLICATED BUT VERY EMOTIONAL AND LONELY WITHOUT GUIDANCE AND COMPANIONSHIP! NJMJr.
