“Dream Boy beautifully acted and directed”

“Like Brokeback Mountain set in high school”
   Attitude

“Based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Jim Grimsley, this page to screen adaptation brilliantly captures the close bond between two teenage boys who dare to fall in love with each other in a devout community, clearly not as open to the sexual spectrum of life, as other parts of America.”

  1. slime child

    This was literally the worst thing I’d ever seen. It was horrible. It seemed like no one condemned all the awful things that happened to poor Nathan, no one paid a price for it. Their relationship was toxic, Roy didn’t defend him when he really needed it the most, and he got jealous over something Nathan couldn’t control and proceeded to take his anger out on him, never apologizing. There was practically no romantic element to this film, just a young boy being abused over and over and over while no one helped him.

  2. Danny K (@dannykaz10)

    I enjoyed the romance in this film and thought both actors were great. Max Roeg was ideal in the role of Roy for me, as the film led you to see events largely through the other boy’s eyes (also very convincingly played by Stephan Bender). The creation of tenderness between the two is touching and heart-breaking because you know Roy really loves Nathan even though he rejects him at one point, and isn’t particularly articulate about it. The film takes a surprising supernatural direction towards the end of the film with what felt like a cliff hanger. The film and storyline would be ideal for a part 2.
