Canada, 2007, 95 Minute Running Time

Program: Closing Night
Language: English

DIRECTOR: Laurie Lynd

Frameline32 saves one of the best for last with this only-in-Canada mix of homos, hockey and family values.
This light-hearted and touching comedy stars TV hunk Thomas Cavanagh (“Ed,” “Scrubs”) as Eric, an ex-hockey player turned sportscaster with memberships in three gyms. Eric is one of those gay guys who would describe himself as “straight-acting” in a personal ad — if he weren’t too busy acting straight to place the ad.
Though not out at work, Eric is living the perfect gay life at home with his lawyer boyfriend Sam (the handsome Ben Shenkman of Angels in America and “Law & Order”). But their closet paradise is threatened when a long lost friend dies and Eric and Sam are told they have custody of her 11-year-old son. Eric fears the arrival of a rude and messy brute who, before they know it, will be swiping beers from their refrigerator and deflowering girls on their 500-thread-count sheets. What they get instead is Scot (the charming Noah Bernett), an “artistic” waif who sings Christmas carols out of season, spells his name with one ‘t’ and likes to give everything, including his pee-wee hockey uniform, “a little more sparkle.”
Can these uptight gay dads learn to love their sissy son? Or will Eric’s reluctance to “be gay” — or even be seen in public with Scot— stand in the way?
