Handsome David Rudd stars as Drake, a sexy and charismatic stranger who infiltrates a group of good-looking, successful, thirty-something gay men in New York City. The flirtatious Drake spices up the lives of this tight knit circle of friends, but soon creates unexpected drama. Drake has a bitter past filled with hurt and betrayal. He thinks that all gay men are cheaters and resents anyone who seems happy and committed. He proceeds to manipulate, seduce and tear apart these friends to prove that no one deserves happiness. Will these friends survive Drake's cunning schemes or prove that love and friendship can prevail against all odds?
A smart and sexy story about the complexity of gay relationships, this touching, funny ensemble film explores non-monogamy, commitment, friendship, getting older and more.
WHIRLWIND hails from director Richard Le May (200 American) and writer Jason Brown (Tender Places). The film's cast also includes talented stage actors Brad Anderson (A Chorus Line), Desmond Dutcher, Mark Ford (Rent), Alexis Suarez and Bryan West (Hairspray).
The banter is witty and the sex is hot, securing Whirlwind a sure spot in gay boys' hearts. - Southern Voice.
Whirlwind is a very well crafted and enjoyable film with convincing characters facing real issues and challenges... The acting is uniformly excellent... There is also ample sex and eye candy for the voyeur in all of us. Exceptional cinematography and cutting complete the package. Michael Klemm, CinemaQueer.com --Wolfe

The interesting thing about the guy who stirs up the whirlwind to deal with his own failed relationship, is that he will probably end up some years in the future as "one tired old queen", the dashing looks a thing of the past, replaced by someone gone way over the hill and rolling down to the bottom, and still not have a clue how he got there! And the friends and the women in their lives, still very much in the present.
I found it a bit disconcerting that the "gang" seemed really isolated in the film. But then again, big city life can be like that and being a minority tends to breing people together for safety and fusion. It would have been interesting to see how the two African-American friends in the group saw their identities being black, or whether that even played a role in who they were.
I would like the players in the film to redue the film in about 10-15 years to see where they were emotionally, and mentally as they had matured.
All in all, a great cast, plugged into a compelling script, done up very well.
Some of the reviews have been negative regarding the sex scenes while at the same time commenting on the "stereotypical" representation of gay social dynamics and movie genre. I found the sex scenes done tastefully and artistic while being erotic without using stereotypical provocative motions or camera movements that are more common in this genre. It is a change in the format which in my opinion, can help open this genre to a broader, less informed audience while maintaining the dignity and pride of the community.
I recommend this movie for all viewers who are interested in a story that normalizes gay social interactions, while providing the viewer with adequate sensory stimulation.
