The Last Straight Man concerns a pair of friends who after a bachelor party for
one of them, the groom and the gay best friend kick back and start confessing
some frank sexual stories. Turns out Scott Sell has always wanted to experiment
with the other side and Mark Cirillo looks forward to being experimented with.
This story is a kind of urban Brokeback Mountain where the two cowboys who are
married after one summer of passion agree once a year to return to the Wyoming
wilderness for what they tell the spouses and the world are hunting and fishing
These two agree that on the same night once a year they would go back for a
night of the same passion. For Sell it's to satisfy that gay side of his nature and
for Cirillo who is a writer of romance novels it's to have an otherwise unattainable romance.
Four of these encounters are shown over a dozen years and we see the changes
in the dynamic of the relationship.
This is a great two character gay study and Cirillo and Sell have some great
chemistry between them.
Does it work out better for them than for Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger?
You won't regret checking into The Last Straight Man to find out.
