The story is about Billy who gets caught kissing with his best friend (a beautiful cowboy looking hunk, the guy on the movie box) in the beginning of the movie and gets booted out his farm ranch from a very abusive, alcoholic father (who has a bible next to him.) Billy hitchhikes to Los Angeles. There he meets Guy, a cute bus boy in a coffee shop. Guy offers his place to Billy temporarily. They show a scene of these two beautiful gay kids next to each other sleeping, nothing happens between them, com on give me a break.
Billy gets hired by James (a much older guy than Billy), the son of Mark, who had several strokes. James is a professional photographer, who just came out a relationship with a drug addict. Mark and his friend Tom, a drag queen go way back together. The setting up of the plot with these two characters was endless in the beginning of the movie.
Billy moves in with Mark and Mark becomes very fond of Billy as a caretaker. James also starts falling for Billy, and vice versa. Marks finally dies from his illness. Billy and James get married. Guy moves back to where Billy is from and hooks up with Billy's best friend. And yes, Billy gets re-acquainted with his mother who has been living in LA since she left her drunk husband.
The movie has its' moments, and it is a cute love story. Billy and Guy are gorgeous. I do not understand why this movie is so pricey, after all it is an American movie. Again the acting is bad. And this movie almost has an identical plot to another American movie "The Journey of Jared Price." In this movie Jared goes for the young kid which he met when he first arrived at LA (unlike Billy), instead of the older guy.
The beginning goes by very fast. Alcoholic father finds his son kissing a gorgeous boy next door. Father is a so called "Christian" with strong beliefs. But in his drunken rage, kicks is son out of the house.
So Billy ventures to Los Angels where he meets makes a friend. He then finds a ad on a bulletin for a live-in caretaker. In character of Billy is honest, caring young man, quite new "NEWBY" who decides to take the care taking job. When all that said and done, the man who hires Billy to caretake his ailing father turns into his lover. Basic story in a nut shell.
Storyline had potential but my opinion; not either played or executed correctly I feel. Actors a fairly good for the dialog they have.
I am old romantic so I decided to add this to my gay romance collection. The actors are hot so why not? LoL but in the end, I guess what caught me was the message they tried to send out. Its jumpy in the movie, like they have many thoughts and go in several different directions that made me wonder while watching, what direction are they going. If you like a romance, this story is ok. If your looking for more than that, this movie would probably bore you. I recommend watching it on "LOGO" or "HERE!" networks(s) first before buying it.
For me though, its a good romantic movie.
