    Award-winning filmmaker Simon Pearce takes the helm for this gritty coming-of-age story about a teenage gang member who keeps his homosexuality a secret from his fellow thugs. Eighteen-year-old Scally lad Cal (Wayne Virgo) is all about sex, drugs, and violence. He's a hoodlum at heart, but his sexual urges set him apart from the pack. Despite random hookups, it's fellow gangster Jonno that Cal really wants. Secretly pining for Jonno from afar, Cal gets uneasy when de facto gang leader Nessa grows suspicious of his sexuality. When Nessa commands the gang to mug an innocent student named Oliver and the incident turns into a gay bashing, Cal distracts the gang momentarily so Oliver can escape. Worried about the repercussions of his impulsive act of heroism, Cal seeks help from Oliver, who offers him a place to stay until it all blows over. With Oliver, Cal can finally be himself, and the two men slowly fall in love. But Nessa is out for revenge, and she's determined to hit Cal where it hurts by kidnapping Oliver and luring his lover into a trap at an abandoned warehouse. There, Nessa fuels the fire of hatred, and Jonno commits an act of sexual aggression that will change everyone who witnesses it forever. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

  • The Last Starfighter - Blu-ray Disc

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Aug 18, 2009

    Trailer-park teenager Lance Guest regularly escapes from his humdrum existence by playing the video game Starfighter. His expertise at this recreational endeavor attracts the attention of affable stranger Robert Preston. Before he knows what's happening, Guest is whisked by Preston into the outer reaches of the galaxy! It turns out that the Starfighter game is being played in deadly earnest in outer space, and that Guest is expected to join Preston's Star League, then do battle with the wicked Kodan forces. Guest's principal ally is the lizardlike Grig (Dan O'Herlihy--and we didn't recognize him either). His great rival is the traitorous Xur (Norman Snow). The contrast between Guest's earthbound life as the son of single-mother Barbara Bosson and his new position as Starfighter is daunting at first, but soon the boy is manning a spacecraft and zapping the baddies as though he's been doing it all his life. The Last Starfighter was clearly designed with "sequel" in mind: giveaways include the resurrection of a "dead" character and the surprisingly casual escape of the villain. While the film didn't stir up enough business to warrant a sequel, the Starfighter video game remained a much-sought-after commodity by joystick-happy "warriors" all over the country. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
