In the area of Clapham in London, pass thirty-six hours of a hot summer. A devoted married couple, but one of them has relationships for the celebration with a young waiter. A fourteen year old boy begins to feel attracted to her neighbor, constantly observing, steeling himself to appear before him. Encounters occur in public restrooms, a screenwriter receives the news that his project for a gay -themed movie has been rejected, a young man prepares to leave the environment, political swapped at a dinner snob. At the same time people do their acts of homophobic violence, especially a boy with intense hatred. The lives of all these characters will often connected in unexpected ways on occasion.
This was a really good movie. I thought it was going to slow and pointless, but to my surprise, it was the opposite. The way the movie was written most of the characters were connected in some small way. They had either seen one another or had sex or tried to have sex.
There are some very violent scenes in the movie against gay men, so if you are upset by that, then this is a heads up. There are several nude scenes in the movie as well, and I mean male frontal nudity. There is not a gay man that would be offended by seeing that. It may just be the reason some even watch it at all.
The characters and the story line in the movie was really well written. The cast did a great job in their roles. The only down side to this movie is that you do have to pay attention to it. It jumps back and forth a lot.
If you are wanting to watch an interesting movie, it is right here. I really did like this movie. It had it all for a drama. Every single emotions was shown. If you get the chance to watch, then I think you should. Enjoy.
