Movie Info

This deliberately broad and overwrought gay-themed comedy-drama concerns a handful of young Hispanics living in Brooklyn whose myriad sexual obsessions are matched only by their fascination with the "telenovela" (Latin-American soap opera) Dos Vidas . Justin (Irwin Ossa) is a mild-mannered assistant to a photographer who specializes in Hispanic beefcake with campy flourishes. Justin is strongly attracted to his cousin Angel (John Bryant Davila), who has arrived in town to do some photo sessions with his boss, but while Justin is tentatively out of the closet, Angel wavers between the gay and straight worlds, and he sets his sights on Andrea (Jenifer Lee Simard), a flamboyantly sexy woman whom he meets at a dance club. Braulio (Alexis Artiles), Andrea's closest friend, is involved with Carlos (Mike Ruiz), who is flagrantly unfaithful and doesn't put much stock in safe sex. Carlos puts the moves on Justin, who reluctantly succumbs to his advances, but when Brauilo learns of Carlos' latest infidelity, he finds himself drawn into the tales of jealousy and revenge from Dos Vidas and is driven to violent retribution against his lover.more

This indelibly vivid, Brooklyn-set sex-melodrama posits Latino culture against the Anglo-American "show business" milieu that appropriates and stereotypes it.
