Under One Roof


(out of 5)

Gay San Francisco twentysomething Daniel can’t face his traditional Chinese mother with the hard truth about his sexuality, which would help stem the tide of eligible young women she keeps throwing in his path. To make matters worse, she takes in a boarder named Robert for their downstairs apartment who is cute, gay and totally into her son. When a basement flood forces the two young men to share a bedroom, you just know there’s going to be some late night slumber parties going on. Yet another zero-budget indie gay flick, this one is (as usual) hindered by terrible direction, acting and dialogue, but has one advantage over the rest (that is, aside from a lot of frontal nudity): it never tries to be melodramatic, and as a home video project is surprisingly easy to watch. It’s still awful, however, and the situations are all so cardboard that it must be a testament to the actors that the film is as appealing as it is. Sadly, director Todd Wilson died of lung cancer not long after releasing this film, at the age of 42.
