Dream Boy

Rated R 2009

Sometimes erotic, sometimes spooky, this gay southern gothic--adapted by writer-director James Bolton from a novel by Jim Grimsley--stars Stephan Bender as a teenager in rural Louisiana and Maximillian Roeg (son of Nicolas Roeg and Theresa Russell) as his seemingly straight next-door neighbor, who initiates a sexual relationship with him. What begins as a sexy coming-out romance turns dark with elements of incest, rape, murder, and the supernatural. With Diana Scarwid and Rickie Lee Jones as the boys' respective mothers. 90 min.
