I found it hard not to like 'Redwoods'. Not because of its artistic value. It's downright dribble. Core of plot is 'the other man's grass is always greener'. In 'Redwoods', the 'other man' is Chase (Matthew Montgomery) who stops at Everett's cottage to ask for directions. Everett (Brendan Bradley) is in an unsatisfactory relationship with Miles. When Chase meets Everett, Miles just happens to have left home for a week's holiday, along with their adopted son. With two steps forward and one step back, Chase becomes Everett's bit on the side. And of course, all's not well that ends well. Sorry, no further spoilers. 'Redwoods' is set in a northern Californian town. Everyone - read 'the supporting cast' - is overly tolerant towards Everett and his new lover Chase. They are - or rather 'act' - politically correct, up to a point it almost suffocates. But when together, Chase and Everett radiate 'a love so beautiful'. This stuck with me, for days afterwards. Brendan Bradley and Matthew Montgomery turned out to be well cast for their parts. They were able to let me in on their feelings and emotions. They conveyed they were comfortable with the roles they played. I think this an enormous asset to this below-mediocore production. I rate 'Redwoods' 5 stars for Brendan and Matthew's performances. Their portrayal of a tender and loving friendship was top notch. Glad to know romance isn't dead (yet).

A few reviews had a negative tone and made me hesitate. But when I finally watched this movie I am glad I did: it is a fine, sensitive, romantic gay love story. The negative responses are not fair, maybe because the reviewers don't like a romantic movie or they were looking for a movie with a message. The ending may seem strange but it is consistent with the characters. You may not like it, you may not agree with the choices Everett made but that is no reason to write about Redwoods as if it is a bad movie.
Some scenes made me think of Shelter and Brokeback Mountain and this is a compliment. There is a fine chemistry between Everett and Chase which makes their relation believable.
I highly recommend this movie.

Basic story: man (Everett) in long term relationship with a child decides to have an affair (with stranger in town, Chase) when his family is away from home. It seems we are supposed to sympathise with the Everett as being oppressed in some way by his boyfriend, and to warm to him thanks to his - rather over-wrought and over-protective - care for his son. I wasn't surprised the son seemed to be intensely anxious in almost all scenes; being subject 24/7 to this father's overbearing 'love' would probably make me mute too. My major problem was that the story struggled to set up the situation convincingly, and Everett (given the implied sense of duty and loyalty at the start of the film) quickly decides to cheat on his partner, without an adequate amount of soul-searching. As other reviewers have stated, I was also surprised at how casually the supporting characters (family members and neighbours) took the obvious betrayal. The conclusion of the story is also a little bizarre, and I felt that it allowed the storywriter to avoid dealing with a more difficult (but probably more realistic/compelling) ending. Special mention must be made of the music: maybe this was due to budget, but a saccharin, schmaltzy piece was used over and over again throughout the film. I suppose this was intended to reflect the beautiful, peaceful scenery, whilst conveying some inner turmoil/excitement, but it sounded like cheap daytime soap music - and it was too obviously trying to create a romantic mood where the script/direction was failing. On the plus side, I believe many of the actors did the best they could with the material, especially Everett's mother (Elinor Bell).

A gay couple in a long term relationship, having troubles are seperated for a week. While one partner is away a stranger appears in the town and there is certainly an interest more than just asking for directions.
The actors are very convincing as the gay couple.
the ending is quite a shock as it is not the standard-I am leaving you for him type of film.
Well worth a look.

The dilemma faced by the character Everett is one that many people with children must have faced - whether gay or straight - and for this reason was well worth exploring. The development of the romantic relationship between Chase and Everett rings true to life, as is their parting. The ending provides closure without being either depressing or over sentimental.

The movie was romantic, cute, but it lost me in the end.. Overall the story was quite good, I could relate to Everett in a way, who hasn't been in a comfortable relationship with a lack of passion but affraid to leave, right?
Thought the prompt nudity was kinda sudden, really gay-movie-like, the boyfriend taking of the towel and putting on boxers and a friend who decides to hop in the jacuzzi and doesn't wear underwear so needs to show off his flaccid member..
The ending was kinda strange, they lost me there.. Didn't see it coming and well, maybe they should have thought about a proper ending before shooting the film ;)
