Movie Info

A popular soap opera star retreats from the spotlight after being outed as a homosexual by a scandalous sex tape, and finds comfort in the company of a marriage-equality activist locked in a bitter divorce battle. Graham Windsor (Steve Callahan) was one of television's brightest stars. But when his sex tape leaked, his career took a nosedive. Checking in to a posh Palm Springs resort, Graham is just looking to lie low for a while when he crosses paths with Trey (Matthew Montgomery) who is there hoping to start a new life after his marriage came to a sudden end. Soon the sparks are flying, giving both men hope that they've finally found a sense of happiness and belonging just when life felt like it couldn't get any worse. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Only a fair film, though gays might welcome it just because there aren't nearly enough films being made today about gay interests.

Audience Reviews for Role/Play

Interesting drama tackles some timely issues, occasionally with a heavy hand and some spotty acting but the leads are attractive and more than willing to show quite a bit of skin.

Super Reviewer

In a private Palm Springs Resort, a recently outed soap actor and a gay marriage advocate collide. Initially their situations make them repel against each other, but after making their peace and realizing their aligned aituations they hook up and their secrets divulge an even closer bond.
This film should be all shades of cheesy, but the dialogue between, what is basically a 2 man play, is exceptional. It handles the issues very neatly without being all placard waving.
It ends up being a very nice romance with a script that talks about issues intelligently. The leads have a very nice chemistry and the finale is nicely formed. my only issue is the length of Steve Callaghan's armpit hair which, considering his hairless body, is ridiculously long. Also the amount of time they spend naked, there is no full frontal. It gets Austin Powers at times. It's not like it was ever classed in a rating.


For a gay movie about a gay activist and a soap opera actor who fall in love, this is actually a pretty good movie. The acting is pretty good for what it is and the storyline actually dives a little deeper into current issues.
