Product Description

RJ and Chris are two teenage boys raised in Mormon communities. Though both are poster boys for their church with perfect academic records and pretty girlfriends, buried feelings soon rise to the surface when they are assigned to serve a mission together as part of their rite of passage. Now, they will have to make sense of the conflict between their desires and the rules that govern the only world they know.

Those who are interested in this film may already have seen the very successful `Latter Days' which covers in some ways the same ground - closeted gay Mormon missionaries challenged by the world outside their own family and faith community. This film does have serious differences however. It was surprisingly not written by a Mormon, as was Latter Days so most of the day-to-day life of a young Mormon missionary was captured from research and interviews. A few of the scenes which cause one of the men to begin to doubt the validity of what they were doing were based on the writer's own experiences in that he attended a Mormon Temple and became an `investigator' or someone interested in the religion who would be visited by the missionaries.
Another difference is that in `Latter Days' the relationship was between a Mormon and an outsider (quite a frivolous character ) but in this version we see the relationship blossom between two missionaries forced to live together while away from home on the mission. They are eager at first but grow a bit weary with it all and have to contend with the feelings they have for one another but cannot express. It's the adverse or indifferent reactions of some of the people they come across - in particular an Iraqi veteran - which softens them up a bit and makes them question themselves. Eventually of course they become overwhelmed by their own feelings and end up kissing in a wood on the way home from a day's work. They are only 20 years old and have very limited personal experience of relationships outside the family.

The only film on this theme I had seen and was a kind of jewel to me was Latter Days, which actually was quite cheesy and romantic and I did love it, cause I've served on a mission and know what we (gay guys) have to go through. The Falls is just as true and I felt every second of it. The Falls? Great film! Very good actors! Excellent director!

Straightforward staging, honest characters and credible interactions and dialogue make this a thoroughly enjoyable film. The story of two, 20-year old Mormon men doing their missionary service in Oregon who find themselves attracted to each other with no way to reconcile their feelings without violating their church's teachings. The soul-searching is wholly believable and the outcomes equally so.

The two lead actors are pretty close to perfect in their roles--making the viewer understand their dilemma and hoping for the best possible outcome. Secondary characters are often equally strong--particularly an Iraq army vet who serves as a kind of anti-missionary for them and helps them take a step toward a different world.

Highly enjoyable, without being preachy or overly critical of religion.

This is about a young Mormon lad or Church of the Latter Day Saints to give them their new name. Elder Smith and Elder Merril are made `companions' for to go out converting people or giving away free copies of the Book of Mormon. This new joining they start `with a prayer'. Anyway we start to get to know them and their pasts and they actually came across as very believable characters.

On their converting missions they happen upon the door of a Vietnam veteran called Rodney (Brian Allard) who has the most amazing voice and was my favourite character. He helps them realise there is more to life that nice teeth and clean shirts. Well they start to have feelings for each other but as Mormon's aren't exactly into the `summer of free love' type ethos it is pretty obvious that their new found `companionship' is going to bring a lot of grief.

I actually liked this film but there are a few howevers, and the first one is production values. This is a small budget film and as such you know there will be some issues. The first was background noise, we have squeaking floor boards and variations in the sound level as this has been obviously taped live with the acting, which I do not have a problem with and it gives it a kind of doco drama feel to the whole thing. There are a couple of plot holes that had me harrumphing a bit but they are not too obvious.

There is no bedroom Olympics either which I was sort of looking forward to as I was feeling shallow when I watched this, but on the strong point there was an attempt to examine the theology that gives credence to out dated homophobic reactions which was sadly missed in `The Seminarian'. At 89 minutes long it does keep you involved but this will never make a best films ever list - sorry. I am being generous at 4 stars but as I said I actually liked it but not everyone will as is the way with things, but I hope you do.

An interesting film, well made with believable characters and believable situations. The film takes its time to develop the conflict in the lives of the two Mormon guys. I am glad that the outcome of the relationship was not allowed to follow cliched lines which resulted in a satisfying finale.

I can recommend this film along with 'Latter Days' which covers some of the same ground but in a different way. Both show how religion can harm as well as bless. Religious intolerance is still very rife in its treatment of those who are different, Gay people included.
