FILM REVIEW | Dream Boy

Nathan is a quiet but different boy, who lives in a very quiet town in the USA.

Nathan falls for the boy next door, Roy – and their relationship blossoms into a gay adolescent love affair with an unhappy ending.

The story is based on a novel by Jim Grimsley and delves into a world of child abuse, rape and the coming of age. It’s a very slow paced movie – think Brokeback Mountain and then slow it down some.

Unfortunately for this film it lacks any of that Brokeback Hollywood treatment. No breath taking vistas, no Jake Gynenhall. Un-hyped and grassroots look at gay life for a teenager in Louisiana.
