This movie certainly caught and held my attention. I didn't really foresee the way the movie would end. It was a good movie with really great acting.
Dane Ritter was superb as the "full-of-it" hustler with very low self-esteem. He portrayed an incredibly complex character and gave an honest performance. He became the character "Oliver" - confused, bright, beautiful, articulate, friendless.
Ed Corbin delivered another superb performance as the closeted police officer. What impressed me most about his performance was the way he went from being closeted to being completely open about his sexuality. He, too, plays a complex character very believably, and gave a nuanced performance. He and Dane played opposite each other very well indeed.
The story is a well-known story: a hustler's street life comes to an abrupt end when a tragedy strikes, making him unable to pursue his business. In comes the cop who takes a liking to the hustler. Then comes love. This particular movie shows more than the standard story: it shows that all people are complex with secrets they must hide. However, when the secrets come out - acceptance and forgiveness follows.
Very highly recommended.
