(See synopsis above)
This is a very touching and wonderful film about a promiscuous gay man Christian (Wes Ramsey) who makes a bet with his friends that he will sleep with one of the Mormon boys, Aaron, who has moved into his block. Yet the more Christian gets to know Aaron (played beautifully by Steve Sandvoss) the more he realises what a superficial and shallow life he leads, and begins to fall in love with the Mormon lad (who is suppressing his homosexual tendencies). Once the ‘church’ finds out about Aaron’s sexuality, he not only has to deal with his own issues with being gay but also the repercussions within his Mormon family and church. This film really surprised me; it’s got a real heart to it, and deals with the subject matter in a sensitive and respectful way. I must admit to shedding some tears during the film and it’s the kind of film you can watch over and over.

This is a very touching and wonderful film about a promiscuous gay man Christian (Wes Ramsey) who makes a bet with his friends & coworkers that he will sleep with one of the Mormon missionaries, Aaron, who has just moved into his block. Yet the more Christian gets to know Aaron (Steve Sandvoss) the more he realises what a superficial and shallow life he has, and starts to fall in love with Aaron. This film really surprised me; it's got a real heart to it, and deals with the subject matter in a sensitive and respectful way. I must admit to shedding some tears during the film and it's the kind of film you can watch over and over again. I have no bad thing to say about this film so rent it, buy it do what ever but see it you wont regret it;-)

I wanted to watch this film again immediately it had finished. It was funny and sad in equal amounts. I haven't cried watching a film in years but this one had me bawling towards the end.
Steve Sandvoss plays the shy yet interested young man very well. Wes Ramsey too plays the shallow gay man on the scene and puls off the look. Great to see Jacqueline Bisset playing a good role again too.
The film highlights a number of points which is that gay men are often more concerned about looks and that maybe we all do look towards the door for something better to come along.
I recommend this film to everyone - although I guess if you are Mormon you may have to get through some barriers before seeing the merits of the film.
Despite it's low budget this film shines out from a lot of mediocre releases from hollywood last year.

I'm finding it really hard to summarize my feelings about this film. It's really a classic love tale, about two people who have to strive against the odds, against two cultures and against tragedy to be with each other. The tenderness between Aaron and Christian always gets to me and I end up crying! This is somewhat marred when one listens to the commentary by the two leading actors, who say that they've 'blocked out' the memories of the love-scenes they did, as if they were repulsed by them - hardly helpful when you watch these scenes again.
The acting, I think, is very good, especially Mary Kay Place as Aaron's mother, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt does a great job at being the git you love to hate.
Latter Days was made on a small budget, and sometimes it shows, in the sets and the sparse numbers of extras; this however adds to the simplicity and sincerity of the film, and helps in making the story more character-based.
On the whole the script is quick and witty, but the dialogue can seem a bit contrived sometimes (e.g. Christian's heart-to-heart with Lila towards the end of the film). But this is only a minor hitch in comparisson with the film's major strength - SINCERITY. C. Jay Cox's sincerity is a tangible and powerful element here, and it drives the whole thing forward. His memories and experience of Mormon culture are omni-present, and you can tell that this is a story straight from the heart. He succeeds in being judgmental without ever being bitter or uncharitable. His effort is a great success.

Format: DVD
Quite a moving experience.For one, as the effect this film ultimately depends on how the viewer perceives and understands homosexuality either in the third or first person point of view. Secondly, unless one vastly knows about, has lived or is living in the US, the dazzling portrayal of local colour which reflects a cross section of it's society may fail to shine through.

Aaron (brilliantly played by Steve Sandvoss),a young Mormon with suppressed homosexual tendencies from the American midwest is assigned to do missionary work in Los Angeles. There he gets to know Christian (an absolutely superb Wes Ramsey)a beautiful but shallow typical West Hollywood type gay. On a bet from his friends, he also embarks on a mission to add Aaron to his long list of sexual conquests. In the course of getting to know each other, Chris holds a mirror to Aaron forcing him to accept his sexual orientation in the same way that Aaron holds a mirror to let Christian see the superficiality of the life he opted for. What starts out as a bet unlocks the feelings they hold for each other which despite the tears, pain and heartache makes them realize for whom each was meant for.

Emotionally, this is not a quiet film. Exquisitely layered, it not only lets the viewer partake in the constant swing of emotions that pendles through the story but as well as give us quite an intimate close-up of a a certain sector of American society. Sandvoss does a very moving potrayal of Aaron who is torn between duty to his church,family and to himself. He portrays his character with such an awesome endearing naivete that one cannot help but simply love him and, for the jaded viewer could possibly wake the desire for a simpler, more truthful life. Ramsey as Christian portrays your average West Hollywood gay to perfection.
