Movie Info

After moving to Chicago for art school, Sam (Nathan Adloff, AUDREY THE TRAINWRECK) begins turning tricks to help pay the bills. His longtime, long-distance boyfriend Aaron (Taylor Reed, WRECKED) can't stand to be apart and joins him, determined to find enough work so that Sam can give up having sex for money. When the two decide to tie the knot and move to a state where they can marry, their financial worries intensify... until Aaron spies on Sam with a prominent client (Joe Swanberg, acclaimed director of HANNAH TAKES THE STAIRS and UNCLE KENT), and everything takes a darker turn. Evocatively shot by Adam Wingard (cult director of POP SKULL and A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE), BLACKMAIL BOYS is a sweet and sexually explicit love story, bending genre with a touch of dark humor. -- (C) ReRunmore

The Shumanski brothers' latest wastes a promising premise by loading up on tender whimsy and skimping on grit.

Blackmail Boys is more interested in the more obvious gay issues such as marriage equality and religious hypocrisy.
