David’s Birthday

A stunningly-shot and beguiling ode to the all-encompassing pull of desire, this movie stands out as an example of gay European Cinema at its most potent. Two married couples head out to the stunning Italian coast for an ideal holiday in the sun. With both Diego and Shanny, and Matteo and Francesca’s relationship seemingly solid and unflappable, the group of friends settle in for a typically serene beach holiday. But when Diego and Shanny’s young lithe son David arrives, it quickly becomes evident that it is not just the young girls on the beach who are drawn to his Adonis-like beauty.

127 Hours

Aron is in the middle of a routine climb when a boulder suddenly becomes dislodged just above him crashing onto his arm and leaving him trapped in solitude inside a dark, isolated canyon. Over the next five days Ralston does everything he can to prolong his life while wrestling with hunger, thirst, flashbacks and hallucinations.
This breathtaking film takes you on a journey through the mind of a man forced to come to terms with himself in the most extreme of circumstances. 127 Hours is a visceral, thrilling ride that demonstrates what the human mind can achieve when it chooses to fight for life.

It is soon apparent that the two are far more than ‘blood brothers’ and confronting these sexual longings threatens to jeopardise their very lives. This is not just a simple love story.
