Product Description

When Tyler Davidson brings his college buddy Chase home for the summer holidays a secret is revealed that threatens to tear his perfect family apart. This summer two young men discover the importance of friendship and second chances. The Davidson family appears practically perfect in every way. Chase arrives in the quaint cottage town of Prospect Lake and is faced with the challenge of controlling his attraction for Tyler s father, Nathan. But Chase isn t the only one with a wandering eye... Nathan struggles to resist his feelings for his son's best friend while safeguarding his life long secret to protect his family. What would you do if the one thing you wanted could ruin your life? The Davidson family's world is set to collapse as the affair is discovered. Can a man keep his family and still hold onto himself? Exceptionally well-written and packed with great performances from a strong cast that includes Charlie David (Dante's Cove, Judas Kiss), Thea Gill (Queer as Folk), Dan Payne (Watchmen), Derek James and newcomer Grace Vukovic.

This well-meaning Canadian indie opens with the explanation that a "mulligan" in golf parlance means "a second chance to perform a certain move or action." Golf enthusiast Nathan Davidson (Watchmen's Dan Payne) seems to have it all--good looks, a beautiful wife, a big house by the beach--until a chance encounter forces him to face the truth (oddly, the screenplay fails to identify the source of his financial largesse). When Nathan's college-aged son, Tyler (Derek Baynham), arrives for a summer stay with his best friend, Chase (writer/producer Charlie David), an aspiring artist, Nathan bonds more easily with the friend than the son. From the start, it's clear that Chase has no interest in girls, but the self-obsessed Tyler fails to notice. While he cavorts with his girlfriend, stay-at-home mom Stacy (Thea Gill, Queer as Folk) looks after his younger sister, and Chase and Nathan enter into a secret affair. Naturally, it won't stay secret forever. Mulligans tackles a sensitive subject in a tasteful, if unadventurous manner, i.e. the actors have a certain chiseled soap-star look and convey inner turmoil by staring into space as piano music plays in the background. For those who find the omni-sexual films of, say, Todd Haynes unsettling (especially Far from Heaven), such unthreatening moves may help the medicine go down easier, but there's no rule that a coming-out film can't take a few chances. Even so, certain moments will surely hit home with anyone who's ever tumbled into a family secret or two. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

"Mulligans" is, for the most part, another one of those problematic, independent, gay-themed films that no major studio would touch. Overall, it's not a bad movie... in fact, when it's good, it's really good. You just have to get through the plodding first half to get to the good stuff.

Let's knock out first what doesn't work here. First off, Charlie David (Chase) and Derek Baynham (Tyler) are WAY too old for their parts. They're supposed to be college kids on summer break, but they both look about 28 years old (which, in fact, they were when this film was made.) This wouldn't be quite so bothersome if not for the fact that Tyler's parents, Nathan (Dan Payne) and Stacey (Thea Gill) look only about ten years older than him (which, in fact, they were when this film was made.)

Next: the big, dumb, loud party scene. `Nuff said.

The biggest problem I had with "Mulligans" was that writer/producer/actor David clearly had it in mind that his character, Chase, was supposed to be the focal point of the story. Considering the DVD box features his handsome mug 20 times larger than the family in the background, I'm easily led to believe that this was intended to be something of a vanity project. Unfortunately, it probably became clear to him halfway through filming that Chase is only the catalyst here, and that the real story - the interesting one - involves the family going through a less-than-orthodox breakdown.

Frankly, I didn't care about the character of Chase at all. David's one-note acting didn't help the cause. Neither did the fact that Chase is a painter... something that was done far more realistically and thoughtfully in "Shelter". Here, it's just a cliché device to show how sensitive Chase is.

"Mulligans" an austere, tight look at gay relationships, will never be among those ground-breaking gay films, but after viewing it, the film has some merit. Granted, the acting is almost as bad as the premise, but for gay dads who find themselves coming out...well, there are plenty of them to take some notice. Written by Charlie David, the younger attraction, it shows a fair amount of promise but not much perspective. In the hands of a more seasoned writer, "Mulligans" could have had more promise.

The film is worth a look. But again, viewed from the father's point of view...the one who carries the weight of family and all the love and baggage that accompanies him... I give credit to actor Dan Payne, who plays the dad. He gives a plausible, thoughtful performance. "Mulligans" is a film that blends an awkward past with some semblance of hope for those trapped in marriages that cannot endure.

Charlie David wrote the screen play and played a starring role in this movie. He did a fabulous job on both counts. He plays Chase Rousseau who spends the summer with his best friend, Tyler Davidson (played by Derek Baynham) and his family at their summer home. All goes well and good until Chase tells Tyler that he's gay. Tyler accepts Chase's sexual orientation but he's not quite sure what it will mean to their friendship. Tyler tells his dad, Nathan Davidson (played by Dan Payne), about Chase's revelation. Nathan encourages him to continue being a good friend to Chase.

An opportunity arises for Tyler, his sister, Birdie Davidson (played by Grace Vukovic) and his mother, Stacey Davidson (played by Thea Gill), to visit his maternal grandmother for a few days. Tyler invites Chase to come along but he decides to stay back at the house. So does Nathan. Over a barbecue Chase and Nathan discuss how life and the choices made were very different when Nathan was Chase's age. He was married to Stacey when they were 18 years old. Although it's not expressly stated one gets the distinct impression that, if Nathan had it to do all over again, he would be a gay man. Although he regrets his honesty with Chase at that moment and tells Chase he should leave him alone, eventually they make love together.

Stacey, Tyler, and Birdie arrive home early. Had they arrived a hour or so earlier they would have found Nathan and Chase in the act. Even so, Stacey catches Nathan kiss Chase -- and the drama begins.

I thought the story line completely believable and well-acted by all. It has a very satisfactory ending. I've watched this movie several times and haven't tired of it. I think it's an excellent gay-themed movie to add to one's lgbtq film collection.

We saw Mulligans at the film festival here in Rochester and were so impressed with the relevance of the story. So many people are coming out later in life - after marriage, children and career and are trying to find a way to navigate the world as a new person.

The acting is wonderful, it's a story that needs to be told and it's beautiful. The music was really great too, would love to get a soundtrack.

Definitely recommend Mulligans - a 'gay film' for everyone. An important film for straight people to see.

The acting is very good. The plot believable. The situation painfully relevant. And the resolution is what one would expect to happen on a relatively positive note. The father is like mine. His secret is like mine. His son's friend evokes the painful truth he has been hiding from everyone, especially himself. Being in the present moment is the answer, "be here now" honestly and as intimately as possible. That's one lesson our children can teach us. And grateful I am, that my sons helped me out.
