TOP 500 REVIEWERon 13 May 2013
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.
