Movie Info

The Seminarian is a story about Ryan, a closeted gay student in his final semester of seminary studies. Despite his school's hostile stance towards homosexuality, Ryan has two gay classmates - Gerald and Anthony - in whom he secretly confides. He is also close to his religiously devout mother who, as things stand, is unaware of his sexual orientation. Ryan needs to complete a solid theological thesis in order to continue doctoral work at the university of his dreams. As he works on his thesis 'The Divine Gift of Love,' Ryan begins a relationship with Bradley - a guy he has met on the Internet who seems perpetually unable to commit himself. Ryan confides in Gerald and Anthony, only to learn about their romantic struggles as well. Consequently, Ryan questions his views on God's gift of love. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for The Seminarian

All Critics (1)

The struggle between spiritual ideals and worldly desires is explored respectfully by talented young filmmaker Joshua Lim...DP Lawson Deming is one to watch for his stately, color-saturated work here.

Movie Dearest

When Lim masters the very fine art of seamless storyline flow and purposely shows more of his point of view than he tells, a film of very high order could be the result.

Audience Reviews for The Seminarian

I believe it tried to make a point here- but in a very hardcore, spoon-feeding way, on top of those terrible, amateurish directing, writing, acting & production.

Pretty standard fare for this type of story line. I'm glad that I've seen it but wouldn't recommend to the non gay friendly crowd.
