Part coming-out story, part small-town drama, Todd Verow's apparently heartfelt tale is imperfectly told. Two generic, somewhat boring high school friends start to realize they're gay. Andrew forges IDs to get them into the local gay bar; Joe recalls a childhood rape, leading to a trite revenge plot. There are also many undeveloped subplots—Joe's mom likes to pass out on the couch, and his sister is scheming to leave for LA. The few authentic moments include a cheerleader's attempts to preserve appearances by keeping Andrew as her boyfriend, and a gentle older man's befriending of Joe. 104 min.
