"Back Soon" (2007) read the note that Logan's (Windham Beacham) wife, Adrianne, left for him when she went out to run an errand. Unfortunately, she was involved in a fatal auto accident and never returned. It looked to the couple's friends that Logan would never recover from that shock, and they weren't surprised when he decided to sell the couple's dream house, since it held far too many memories.
The first morning the house is being shown, Gil (Matthew Montgomery) is the first potential buyer, and immediately feels a "connection," not just with the house but also with Logan. That connection develops into a close friendship in a very short time, and takes a step beyond that one night, when a sleepwalking Logan enters Gil's bed and these two "straight" young men have sex. This is a surprise to both of them, since they were never attracted to other men before, but it somehow felt right, as do the feelings they have for each other. In time, the possible cause of those feelings surfaces.
This isn't your typical gay romance, and only some minor characters identify as gay. While done on a tiny budget (and it shows), from a screenplay with more than its share of trite, cheesy lines, and featuring acting (with the exception of the two lead actors named, who made it almost believable) that would be laughed off a high school stage, the story is at least original in its approach to explore the dynamics of attraction and love, with a "Twilight Zone"-ish twist that is both thought-provoking as well as slightly cringe-inducing. Reviews are all over the scales on this, since it isn't everyone's cup of tea. Gay fans of fate and the supernatural may like it more. Good DVD extras include actor and director commentaries, cast interviews and a stills gallery. I give the effort three stars out of five.
