This gay-themed film by young director Lloyd Eyre-Morgan explores a teen gay love story between Paul (Bradley Cross) and George (Joe Gosling) who both meet in a campsite one summer in the late '80s. Paul is mild-mannered and has a nosy mother who doesn't seem to see that he's all grown up and not  a kid anymore. Definitely, that kind of mother who has a watchful eye and very domineering. George is the athletic-type Londoner who breaks the law as he indulges in shoplifting. Paul and George strike an unlikely friendship and ultimately became lovers, plotting a plan to go away together the next summer to Australia. While the film hints at the ability or inability of a person to keep his word/promise, it nevertheless explores the relationship between Paul and George and of the mother-son relationship of Paul and Denise (played by Janet Bamford).  Melodramatic at times, this film seems to start off well but has the tendency for over-the-top gestures and acting and this could be due to the fact that this film is based on a play written by its director. Engrossing to watch!

The opposite personalities of the two lead characters, Paul and George, make for a very interesting study.  These two mid-teens who meet in the summer of '88  in a campsite in Wales, despite the contrasts in personalities, became good friends and ultimately as lovers. Bradley Cross as Paul was very affecting, meek and timid, all the while being hounded by the shadow of his domineering mother Denise ( Janet Bamford). On the other hand, Joe Gosling as George, while brash and a little wayward has his great acting moments in this film.  This film is based on Eyre-Morgan's play and with a rather raw edge it catches the attention of viewers for the commendable performances.  Emily Spowage as Angharad, the friend of Paul is also impressive and acts naturally in this film.  Worth checking out!
