- Jonathan (Tuc Watkins)—a handsome businessman—flies into San Francisco and hires a young hustler (Devon Graye) to accompany him on a road trip to the Grand Canyon, with a catch: he must role-play as someone named “Brandon.” On the road, “Brandon” comes to realize he’s playing a vital role in the recreation of Jonathan’s lovelorn past. As the hustler digs for clues, Jonathan insists that he stick to the role he was hired for. Eager to leave his own past behind and feeling a strange connection with his unique client, he sheds his own identity and plays the part. An amorous game of obsession and manipulation commences, as these two broken souls get closer to their destination.
The Hollywood Reporter notes the film is “Carving out some distinctive new territory in the well-trod world of queer cinema,” while The San Francisco Bay Times calls it “palpable and heartbreaking.”
DVD Special Features will include an audio commentary track with the director & crew, a behind-the-scenes making-of featurette, post-screening Q&As at Out On Film (Atlanta) and Newfest (NYC), the short film Passenger, a Tuc Watkins interview, and deleted scenes.
