Big Eden Reviews
The story about a New Yorker going back to the small town he was raised in- Big Eden, Montana. He meets all his childhood friends and family and tries to stay in the closet from them since it's a small town. Strangely just about everyone's gaydar goes off pretty well and they still care about him either way. Then there's his high school best friend which he has his eyes on. Sadly he's married but nonetheless he likes him two. Awkward moments after awkward moments when they admit to eachother thier love, another man comes into play with a hidden interest for the main character: the native-american store clerk at the local hangout place for most of the men to chill out.Wishing he knew the man in high school he begins to hang out with him more, growing a friendly relationship till the native's crush grows bigger. Now he must choose between the two.
Overall it's almost something Hallmark would make. It's such a feelgood film it might as well be a card. But it is still a great movie about acceptance and works well for it's more-emotional scenes. The acting is pulled off abley and the music is decent for folk/country music, likable.
Enjoyable, likeable, watchable.
My only complaint: The big screen kiss. Even for straight couples it goes on a bit long. I remember sitting there thinking
WATCH THIS MOVIE.
And big bravo for Eric's Schweig and other cast acting.Its so natural,funny and pure.
Wish Eric more BIG EDEN opportunities and his fans to watch.
