Movie Info

Director Adrian Shergold uses interlocking stories to examine the connection between homophobia and gay desire in this hypersexual drama set in South London over the course of two sweltering summer days. It's a typical day in London: groups of young men are hitting the gay bars in droves, a devoted gay couple is preparing to take part in their commitment ceremony, casual encounters are unfolding in public restrooms, haughty politicians are trading stories at a posh dinner party, and a curious young homosexual has set his sights on the handsome man across the courtyard. Over time, each of these separate stories come together to form a rich urban tapestry inspired by the 2005 gay-bashing of Jody Dobrowski on Clapham Common, and filmed to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexual acts in Great Britain.

Audience Reviews for Clapham Junction

  • Jun 19, 2015
    A disquieting film about the loneliness and desperation of isolation for gay men in a contemporary world at times unaware of, at times gleefully fostering, the discrimination and violence imposed on the gay community -- and the unsuspected visitation of the same in the perpetrators' own families. Haunting, beautiful, terrifying and disgusting in all its facets. Poor cinematography and disjointed story telling, but surprisingly good performances by Luke Treadaway and Joseph Mawle. One cannot help but be disturbed and moved by the injustice -- and at the same time, the victims' own violations -- as they deal in their own ways with being forced to live in the shadows. Despite its weaknesses, this is a very good tale worthy of consideration.

    This film is very real. It's wonderfully acted - I was especially moved by Joseph Mawle. The ending is actually so honest. It's not happy or fancy or more than it needs to be. It's sad, truthful, and left me with a sigh. Sometimes I wouldnt have liked that, but for this movie, it just seemed so fitting to end it that way. The whole movie was well made, just the way it was put together was so perfect. Nothing was overdone, there was no excessive exposition and yet I didnt have any unanswered questions at the end. I'm glad I found it and was able to watch it. What did this movie teach me? When art actually does imitate life and shows a realistic view of things, it can leave you with a very unique feeling.
