“It’s an all-stops-out heart-tugger for sure . . . its emotional wallop is earned honestly and uncompromisingly.”—Kevin Thomas, L.A. Times
Winner of the Outstanding First Narrative Feature Award at OUTFest (the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival), and the Best Gay Male Feature Film Award at the Philadelphia International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.
Combine a hunky, repressed Mormon missionary and an L.A. party boy, sensual sex and knowing humor, and the result is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser. Christian is a handsome, young man who flits from guy to guy without much of a thought in his pretty little head. So when his roommate Julie discovers that the gorgeous group of young men who moved in next door are Mormon missionaries, they bet on whether Christian can bed one of them. Christian quickly moves in for the kill, identifying Elder Aaron Davis as a repressed homo—and quite a sexy one at that. Their initial encounters have a charged sexual tension, but fear of the devil keeps Aaron’s libido at bay. When the two are alone together, Aaron’s Mormon missionary roommates interrupt, spot their brother as gay and send him back in shame to his Idaho hometown and embarrassed parents. But in a heartfelt conclusion that brought festival audiences to their feet, love wins out over fear.
The feature film version of Latter Days will be released in January 2004, starring Jacqueline Bisset, Mary Kay Place, Wes Ramsey, Steve Sandvoss and Amber Benson.
C. Jay Cox wrote the screenplay for the smash hit film Sweet Home Alabama, starring Reese Witherspoon, and makes his directing debut with Latter Days, for which he also wrote the screenplay.
A shallow LA party boy falls in love with a hunky, repressed Mormon missionary in this gay romantic drama from the writer of Sweet Home Alabama.
Now a major motion picture from Funny Boy Films and TLA Releasing, starring Jacqueline Bisset, Mary Kay Place, Steve Sandvoss, Wes Ramsey and Amber Benson
West Hollywood pretty boy Christian takes special pride in his talent for bending straight boys. So when four young Mormon missionaries set up housekeeping in the apartment across the way, he and his friends place bets on how long it will take Christian to separate one of the apple-cheeked evangelists from his sacred undergarments.
The hitch in the plan: No one could've predicted that Christian would fall in love with Aaron, the most earnest believer in the bunch.
As Aaron struggles to reconcile his feelings for Christian with his love for his church, Christian tries to prove to Aaron that he's more than a WeHo player with a kitschy apartment and a closetful of Spandex. But when Aaron's fellow missionaries discover the budding romance, Aaron and Christian are torn apart before they have a chance to experience true togetherness.
Latter Days is a story about connection, romance, and self-discovery. It also reveals the desperate--and sometimes heroic--things people will do for love.
