Having been good friends for years, Martin and Tomaz now find themselves on the cusp of adulthood. Martin’s father sends his son to southern Brazil, where the family is from, to sort out an inheritance matter. Tomaz accompanies him there. For both of them, the brief excursion to the coastal town becomes a journey into themselves. It’s not just the sea that nearly reaches the doors of the country house which exerts a slow, yet relentless pull on them – the two friends have the same effect on one other.

THE SURFACE starring Harry Hains, Michael Redford and Nicholas McDonald coming to film festivals this summer. A film by Michael J. Saul. www.TheSurfaceFilm.com

SURFACE tells the story of Evan Jones, a child orphan who, for years, was shifted from one foster home to another. Now a disaffected college student, he lives with his wealthy boyfriend, Chris. Their social and financial disparities have made their relationship increasingly volatile despite their mutual love for one another.

While sifting through old relics at an elderly man’s yard sale, Evan finds an 8mm movie camera. The man offers to teach Evan how to use it if he comes back the following week. Upon returning, Evan meets the man’s 43-year-old son, Peter.  They strike up a conversation and Peter gives him reels of old 8mm movies that are collecting dust in the garage. The home movies, featuring a young Peter and his boyhood friend touch a nerve with Evan. Their youthful flirtations and tenderness are uncomplicated and pure. Evan begins to live vicariously through the home movies and his friendship with Peter soon turns romantic.

Evan’s relationship with his boyfriend, Chris splinters as he pushes for greater understanding of himself and the notions of family, love and fulfillment.

a newer gay themed movie For My Brother has some previews available on YouTube and Vimeo. The older brother, 16 years of age, will do almost anything to protect his younger brother. Tough movie to watch because it happens all too often. The film is to be released this June so try not to confuse it with other movies with a similar name.
