Movie Info

A gay couple bound together by their love for their learning disabled son finds their relationship but to the test when one enters into a passionate romance with another man. Set against the majestic backdrop of the Russian River, Redwoods opens to find Everett and Miles settled into an uneventful life of predictable domesticity. These days, it seems like the only thing keeping them together is their mutual desire to give their son Billy the best upbringing they can. One day, Miles takes Billy on a father/son trip. While they're away, Everett befriends a traveling writer named Chase. The chemistry between the two men is instantaneous and undeniable, and before long Chase's dormant passions are reawakened. Is Miles and Everett's love strong enough to endure the challenges of a long-term relationship, or is it finally time for them to both accept the fact that they'd be better off apart.

Critic Reviews for Redwoods

All Critics (2)

Redwoods is filled with inspirational nature montages, sappy music, soap opera level acting and production values - practically inviting rampant heckling.

Yes, everyone loves a handsome stranger, but at this stage of the game, we need our handsome strangers -- gay or straight -- to do something new and interesting, not just recycle the same very familiar three-act story arc.

Audience Reviews for Redwoods


A tale of cheaters. Meet Everett and Miles, a gay couple with a disabled son. While Miles went on a father and son trip, Everett met a handsome travelling writer and as you would have expected, one thing lead to another, Everett must decide between the old bound and new romance. The acting was disastrous, no chemistry could be seen. The script was ridiculous and the direction was all over the place. It's like a really long and really bad soap opera that wouldn't end. Would have been better if it was a psychological thriller.

It just felt like there were too many music breaks to show the scenery and it makes it really seem like this film was only an hour long, so they had to put those scenes in to make it longer. Predictable and film felt very flat

I really wanted to like this it, even. Two minutes into it, I felt sucked in the same way you would if you were watching a fatal traffic accident in slow motion, and with much the same result; I wanted to hurt myself for putting myself through the experience. Where to begin...? The actors seemed as if they had never met each other before the very moment they appeared on camera. Dialog was stiff and as unnatural as a gay Republican. And talking about time dilation, this was really a 45 minute film dragged out to 90. The acting was on a par with a BAD high school drama production. The direction was....nonexistent. And what makes it all a real shame is that the underlying story was very good. Unless misery is an option you love, skip this film.
