From the creative mind of Terracino comes this wildly entertaining NYC tale of wide-eyed Elliot, a young gay man seen both as an inquisitive 10-year-old boy and an idealistic 21-year-old searching for love in all the wrong places. Elliot is handsome and charismatic, but unlucky in love. He can't seem to hold down a relationship for more than a few weeks but things look promising with Kiko, a sexy young go-go dancer who seems smitten with Elliot. As Elliot's heart is repeatedly broken in the present, the film flashes back to situations in the past that fuels his current need for love as he struggles through adolescence with his abused mother. Although heavy in theme, Elliot Loves bounds with a consistent optimism and features captivatingly nuanced performances throughout. Charming, fresh and engrossing, Elliot Loves is a classic gay feature in the making.

This is the story of Elliot, who was born to a mother of simple tastes that is so far as having a man in her life is concerned. She had Elliot as an unintended consequence of those tastes. We meet him as a ten year old growing up as a Dominican Republic, American in New York. Apparently Elliot is old German meaning `he who walks with God', well he is not exactly religious but he does like a man in his life, just like his mum, and he has the same problem regarding holding on to them too.

We follow Elliot in the ups and downs involved with trying to find love and it is really quite funny and touching in places. The sound levels are an issue but hardly a deal breaker and the acting is all above fine. Elliot's mate Hector played by Robin de Jesus is particularly likeable. We also have some real cringe worthy chat up lines and some minimalist bedroom antics, but nothing too full on, so if that is your thing then best to avoid.

This is an independent effort and whilst it may be apparent to the movie aficionado it does not lose any of its charm and to quote Elliot from the film - `it's tough being special', and I actually really enjoyed this despite having read some negative copy on this film. If you keep your mind well open you should be able to get something out of this rather good gay based film.

I bought this with nothing really in mind, but I must say I was pleasantly surprised, the story lines were good and the action very sweet.

The story of Elliot's loves is not very complicated and told in a fairly straightforward manner. We learn of his family life (let's just say his mother is not necessarily very good as a homemaker) and of his love life (let's just say Elliot is almost as much of a failure in this area as his mother) but obligatory happy ending follows (yes, it's basically a comedy so it's not a spoiler). Small cast and minor flaws show limited budget so keep your expectations rather low.

Saw a trailer for this. Had to buy it. Not disappointed. Worth watching for the performances alone. There's not really any groin grinding but that's ok. The acting makes up for that.
