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.

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'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.

So many other Amazon.ca reviews of "Latter Days" (T.L.A. Releasing TLAD-084, in the North American edition that I own) have said enough about most aspects of this wonderful film, that I just want to limit my comments to the very genuine realism of the movie's depiction of the Church [i.e. cult] of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The maternal side of my family hails from Utah, my mother having been born in Salt Lake City, and when she reverted to the L.D.S. cult (having been physically tortured as a young child into becoming a member of a Baptist sect by the third of my Mormon grandfather's many, many wives, most of whom were not Mormon, thankfully, though crazed enough in other ways) she dragged my step-father, half-brother, half-sister, and me into the L.D.S. cult along with her.

Some folks will think that this motion picture's portrayal of the L.D.S. Mormon cult surely is exaggerated. Not so. This is far from either morbid Mormon-bashing, on the one hand, or from laugh-provoking humour at Mormon expense; of the latter sort of thing, one thinks of the scene in the gay erotic video, "The Bella Villa" (a William Higgins International production), in which a persistent doorbell ringer interrupts two naked gay men, the young man at the door resembling at first glance a pesky L.D.S. Mormon missionary (alone, however, not with a companion along to missionise together!), but who turns out to be either a dildoe-delivery dude or door-to-door salesman of such sex toys. The depressing depiction of L.D.S. Mormonism (which requires no overstatement to make its impact) in "Latter Days" is right in detail, in mood, in its repressiveness, in the uptight culture that this cult breeds in every way (and which, incidentally, do not compensate adequately for such good aspects of L.D.S.
