Polar opposite teenagers Paul and George meet and fall in love on a campsite in Wales during the summer of '88 in this quintessentially British drama from first-time director Lloyd Eyre-Morgan. The young lovers make a pact to return the following summer and run away together, but when only Paul shows up, he vows to find his young lover and sets off with his best friend in tow and his overbearing mother not far behind. If they think running away is going to be easy, they d better dream on.

The UK has had a great tradition of iconic gay coming of age movies, Two of Us, Get Real and Beautiful Thing being three that readily spring to mind. Well now there's a new one to add to the list with the imminent release of Dream On. Like Beautiful Thing, Dream On started life in the theatre but in this production, unusually, both the leads made the move across from stage to celluloid.
Set in the bleak 1980s, Paul (Bradley Cross) plays a shy Northern lad much put upon by his overbearing mother (Janet Bamford). On a camping holiday in North Wales, he meets George (Joe Gosling), a cocky London lad with all the swagger and confidence that Paul lacks. Without giving too much away, a slow-burning love story emerges which is beautifully played out by the two boys. In addition, some deftly comic touches are added by the character of Angharad (Emily Spowage), whose father owns the campsite.
This is a debut feature by young Writer/Director Lloyd Eyre-Morgan who is already at work on a follow-up project. If Dream On is anything to go by, this is a man to watch.

Normally when I watch a film I will also be tweeting, facebooking, txting etc. at the same time. But not with this one. Dream On was amazing, I sat down and watch it all in one sitting without even checking my phone. For me, with my very short attention span, must mean it's some film.

When you read the reviews & look at the back of the DVD it sound just a nice little film, two lads fall in love on a campsite in Wales, plan to meet-up again a year later to follow there dream to run a bar in Australia, and one doesn't show....BUT It's much much more than that.

When Paul & George do fall in-love it happens in such a beautiful way, there is none of this "Oh a fancy another lad", it's just so god damn romantic. It's not two lads falling in love. It's two human beings coming together, as they belong together.

Really I should not admit this, but I could really connect with Paul, the shy lad from up north who is not really street wise. As that is me, and as for George, the lad from down south who, at the start of the film, has so much confidence. Just such an amazing film.

I have noticed Dream On has had a couple of 1 star reviews here on Amazon about it having a low-budget feel. While I can see why those people feel like that. For me the low budget makes it even more amazing & special. This type of film would not work with a multi million pound budget.

All in all just a totally awesome film that everyone should watch at some point in there life.

PS: It does have a sad ending and I did have a tear in my eye too.

A great British gem felt like it was filmed in the 80s yes it's low budget but this added to the feel of the film. Really rooted for the leads Paul and George , great script with some funny one liners ! Stick with it as gets going in the second act
and you won't regret watching dream on ! Have checked out the filmmakers next film celluloid trailer looks like a step up staring Jody Latham who is a mint actor !

`Dream On', is a brilliant new film by first time director Lloyd Eyre-Morgan. Paul a shy northerner finds himself on a family holiday in Wales where he meets George a young outgoing Londoner. They embark on a story of growing up, love and friendship.
It's an inspiring new film, which has a real British feel. IT'S a must have for the film collection.

I caught this film at a preview screening last June, not knowing what to expect it was a pleasent suprise.
The story is told beatifully capturing the essence of youth through the characters of George, Paul and Angharad. Paul is on Holiday with his overpowering mother in Wales and soon meets George and is pulled into a land of dreams, fantasy and escape. The campsite daughter Angharad is never far behind them adding humour in some very touching scenes.
George and Paul plan to meet back at the campsite a year later and run away, one year later, Paul returns and George does not, what follows is the darker half of the film which shows the reality of dreams and youth. I loved the comic book feel to the film, and the story is told through the total innocence of Paul. It's refreshing to see Britian making gay films and focussing on good storytelling ! This is a must buy for fans of british cinema and LGBT cinema!

Dream On [DVD]
Very good film, with some very moving scenes. I can't add much to the mainly positive reviews, except to say don't be put off by talk of a sad ending. I nearly was, having watched a number of films lately with un-satisfying or uncertain endings. Yes the ending is sad (if probably not a surprise, given what we have learnt about George). However, it is also beautiful and moving and will not leave you thinking you should have spent the past 90 minutes doing something else ! I agree with all the positive things written by other reviewers, definitely recommend the film, and have just now ordered my own copy. Enjoy it !
As a footnote, I wish I had seen the stage play.
