His violent and possessive swings in mood mean that before too long it is impossible for Anthony to remain. The story is told in flash back and has a time line that appears at the bottom of the screen to ensure you are not missing the importance of exactly when things are happening. We see how Anthony has so much to learn from the big city and he befriends Gavin (Adam David) a seventeen year old run away and street wise hustler. They form a bond that is more caring than the one he has/had with Stephen. Along the way there is a host of characters that bring the story to life.
This is a slow paced film with a minimalist approach to film making. I can not remember any background music for instance. There is extensive use of the shaky camera approach which always lends itself to realism/docudrama. But it also goes some way to making a somewhat drab scene be filled with more animation. This, as a device, is used to great effect as part of this story is the crushing loneliness of being in a big city where the one person you thought you knew and could trust, turns out to be a controlling egomaniacal bully (that is not a plot spoiler by the way). There are some very awkward scenes and the need for true friendship is at the core of the tale.
This is not a sex fest either, there are a number of bed room `grunting' scenes but it is actually done in a realistic yet surprisingly tasteful way. Also all of the actors come across (no pun intended) as being very real, they actually have body hair, which makes a pleasant change (unless its one of those rare `bear' movies that is). Even though this is slow paced, there is enough drama to keep you hooked and actually want to know what happens next. It also avoids all of the movie clichés both in terms of the relationship narrative and the whole street hustler thing too. So as a debut effort from writer and director Scott Boswell I feel he has done an outstanding job. If you are a fan of gay and moreover independent cinema then this is one you will want to see - recommended.
Anthony's romantic idealism drove him to follow Stephen back to San Francisco. His passivity simultaneously attracts and repels the unstable Stephen, creating turbulent and aggressive relations between the two. When this coupling inevitably combusts, Anthony's fragility turns to apathy - although in a foray of aimless night-time encounters, his paths crosses with those of Gavin (Adam Perez), an enigmatic 17-year-old hustler.
THE STRANGER IN US unfolds without linear narrative: various scenes interject themselves without any chronological foundation, almost as if they were being reconstructed by the vagaries of our memory. Consequently, there are moments of anguish juxtaposed with humor, sensuality bearing wounds, naive bliss and bruised pleasures. The strong cast and fresh dialogue work together to forge a unusual collective yet solitary intimacy.
Writer/director Scott Boswell - in this, his impressive debut feature film - confidently creates an intriguing assemblage of churning sensibilities. Not for those who seek their reflection in a fairy-tale, the aptly-titled THE STRANGER IN US is otherwise a quietly thoughtful collision of ambiguous passions and irreconcilable identifications.
Extensive DVD extras include a behind-the-scenes feature, an alternative ending, deleted scenes and Scott Boswell's short film, "One Fine Morning".
It is February 8. Anthony (Raphael Barker) has moved from Virginia to San Francisco, California. He is trying to get over his relationship with Steve (Scott Cox). On the telephone, his grandmother tells him she will help him pay his way back to Virginia if he needs to. Tonight, Anthony has company, he met a street kid, Jeff (Travis Romo), and has invited him over. The kid tries to get comfortable and starts asking questions. Anthony really doesn't want to talk about his roommate, Nancy (Goldie Chen) and doesn't want to talk about the man in the photograph, Gavin (Adam David). Anthony will only say, he is gone. Then Jeff says the old lines, "I'm getting hot in here", "Maybe we can find a way to cool down", "Would you like to help me out?". Anthony tells him to stop and that this is all wrong. Jeff asks him if he should leave. The next scene shows them having sex. For Anthony, it is meaningless with no feelings. For the street kid, it is just business. Anthony pays him.
Later, Anthony eats cold pizza and listen's to his nice grandmother's message, but quickly deletes it. He doesn't care. He listens to a message from Gavin. he doesn't care either.
The next morning, Anthony is back on the bus remembering all that happened to him this year.
Now the film takes us back to one year earlier, when Anthony first arrived on the bus from Virginia into the Transbay Transit Center in San Francisco to be with Steven.
The story jumps around his time with Steven, living with Nancy, when he met Gavin and the one-nighters he had.
