This is the latest film from writer and director Lloyd Eyre-Morgan who brought us `Dream On'. This is billed as a `psychological, gay themed drama', and it sort of works. It is about Josh who lives with his loud and brash sister Nichola and his mum who is having regression therapy to deal with abuse issues as a child. She is having mood swings and seems to rely too much on Josh. Meanwhile Josh likes making films with his handycam and is making a horror with his best mate - who he also has a massive crush on.
Anyway we have his sister getting involved with the boys from the Council Estate or Social Hosing Project as I think we now say. This is Barnsey played by Jody Latham of `Shameless' fame. Josh also seeks solace by going on line and he meets an American who decides to help.
Now there is a lot of angst in this and some genuinely tense moments, and it can be quite hard hitting, the plot does suffer a bit from obvious funding short comings - like squeaky floor boards and bed springs, but I actually found that quite endearing. Some of the plot twists do require a bit of a stretch in the credulity department but to say what they are would be a plot spoiler.
Some of the characters are really unlikable and some over earnest acting detract from the actual plot. Overall though this does work the 'good' parts are nearly enough to compensate for the few less convincing aspects. So it does manage to be what it set out to do, though for anyone looking for a bedfest you would be advised to look elsewhere as this is not the point of this indie film - so it is just ok hence my rating.
