This is a story of Evan Jones, an orphan who was shifted from one foster home to another for years. Now a disaffected college student, he lives with his wealthy boyfriend, Chris. Their social and financial differences have made their relationship increasingly volatile despite their love for one another. While shifting through relics at an elderly man’s yard sale, Evan finds an 8mm movie camera. The man offers to teach Evan how to use it, and then meets the man’s 43-year-old son, Peter. Peter gives him reels of 8mm movies that have been collecting dust. The home movies, featuring a young Peter and his boyhood friend touch a nerve with Evan. Their youthful flirtations and tenderness are uncomplicated and pure. Even begins to live vicariously through the home movies, and his friendship with Peter soon turns romantic. Evan’s relationship with Chris splinters as he pushes for greater understanding of himself and the notions of family, love, and fulfillment. • Ariztical Entertainment (ariztical.com). —Troy Carrington
