Movie Info

A young, gay man is forced out of the closet when his mother rents out a room in their house to a hunky border in this romantic comedy. Still living with his conservative, traditional mother and grandmother in their San Francisco home, first-generation Asian-American Daniel (Jay Wong) is aware of his sexuality but unable to act upon his desires. Enter Robert (James Marks), an openly queer Midwesterner seeking a place to live in the city. Once under the same roof, Robert and Daniel begin a clandestine affair, one that forces the latter to put his own happiness ahead of his family's expectations.

The story was simple, but easy to believe. None of the acting was over the top, and the actors made this a believeable, sweet romantic and quite funny film. This movie was a pleasent suprise for me. When it began, and I saw the video/digital format I thought to myself "oh god, here we go". But I was quickly overjoyed with the storyline as well as the acting. All thumbs up!
