The first feature film by Kevin Dinovis... who wrote, directed, edited, and starred in this haunting portrayal of eerie co-dependence. As Trevor, actor Peter Prior gives a startingly disturbing performance of a man driven to destruction due to his fear of women. Dinovis, who plays Lahn/Dorothy, turns in a obsessively needy drug-addled performance.
If you like your movies dark, twisted, edgy, sexually gritty, and with an ending that allows you to draw your own conclusions... this one is definitely for you.

Wow. I watched this movie expecting to maybe not finish it. This story has never been told before as far as I know. The black and white heightened the effect of the movie. Poor Dorothy. My friends liked it like I did, both men and women. When we talked about it after the movie, but we all liked and cringed at different places. What a fun discussion we had afterwards. Not for children and probably not for all adults. If you have a weak stomach this might not be for you, but it is fun. I very much recommend this movie for people that are not looking for the same story that we've all seen over and over again.

Its hard believe this award-winning film didn't get more exposure. A darkly comic and disturbing tale of sexual frustration and physical and mental abuse. It may not sound like "fun" but this film is deeply captivating. Hopefully it will get more exposure now that it is on DVD.

This psychological thriller did very well on the film festival circuit, but surprisingly, has not led to much for director/star, Kevin DiNovis, who took a big chance playing the lead character at the last minute when his original lead got cold feet.

Anti-social dishwasher Trevor (Peter Pryor) watches attractive women eating in the restaurant where he works. Afraid to talk to them, he has a habit of stealing their used silverware, taking it home, and masturbating while orally exploring his stolen prizes. Lahn (DiNovis) is a heroin addict, on the run from his former roommate, a drug dealer who he has robbed. Sensing Lahn's desperate need for a fix and a place to stay, Trevor agrees to supply Lahn's shelter and daily dose, but at a price. It starts off simple enough: Lahn must do household chores to earn his keep. As Trevor realizes just how much power someone can have over a drug addict simply by supplying the drugs, he begins to take advantage of the situation. Trevor turns Lahn into his slave, having him do housework while wearing an apron with the name Dorothy stitched on it. Gradually, as more and more boundaries are pushed, Lahn must dress and act like "Dorothy", the ideal girlfriend of Trevor's creation. From there it becomes a tale of confused sexual servitude; full of mind games and power struggles, until a final intense point of no return.

Unlike most of the films on this list, SURRENDER DOROTHY is more of a realist drama than an exaggerated comedy, science fiction, musical, or action film. Like the work of Todd Solondz, it's dark, disturbing and will leave you thinking about it for awhile. While loaded with sexual overtones, the film is not likely to be much of a turn on to most (unless you like seeing DiNovis in a dress).
