Tiger Orange 2014 15

75 mins USA Director. Wade Gasque

This gentle tale of two gay brothers from rural California is one of small-town regret and brotherly misunderstanding. An absent mother and a harsh father don’t make for the happiest beginnings and Todd (played by ex-porn star Frankie Valenti, aka Johnny Hazzard, of whom Variety’s reviewer wrote ‘yes, he can act’) is the brother who left town, while Chet stayed, looked after his father and ran the family hardware store. When Todd’s promiscuous LA lifestyle falls apart and he is forced to return home, the story properly begins.

Chet’s shy refusal to engage with a gay lifestyle is thrown into high relief by Todd’s very modern engagement with online sex, outdoor cruising and full-on misbehaving. The clash of cultures forces both of them to re-examine who they are, in this riveting feature debut.
