This is quite a neat little film that perhaps romanticises recognisable figures - the hooker with the heart of gold, etc - to reassure those on the cusp of realising their sexuality that it's OK to accept who are you. It's a familiar story told from a gay angle - and from both ends of the sexual spectrum - and is pretty much a talking heads picture. Roseanne's Sara Gilbert is the hooker in question, an experienced sexual professional who is paid by the father of Erik MacArthur for an hour of sex with his boy.
She realises almost immediately that Scott is gay, and goes out of her way to show him kindness and put him at ease. She teaches him, by the film's end, that it isn't necessary to question why people are the way they are but just to accept them for who they are. It's one of storytelling's oldest messages, but it's told with a sensitivity and good-naturedness that makes it worth a viewing.
