Fair Haven - a very watchable gay indie feature film.





I've just watched this film and was at first a bit annoyed at its dour mood, so common in gay films. I want to scream, lighten up, at so many of them. A great tale can be told without it being a never-ending tragedy. But this film really cut it. It's sensitive and understated. The boys are lovely, and I wouldn't have minded a few more scenes of their intimacy. But it was above-all the father-son relationship under the microscope. Mother has passed away and Dad is dealing with his business, his widower status and his very un-chip-off-the-ole-block son. Do watch it.
