Synopsis
Sweet Home Alabama screenwriter C. Jay Cox directs the independent romance Latter Days. Christian (Wesley A. Ramsey) is a young gay party boy who lives in Southern California. When a group of good-looking Mormon missionary guys move into his apartment complex, he's determined to pick one up. He ends up falling for sweet, innocent Mormon Aaron Davis (Steve Sandvoss), who's secretly struggling with his sexuality. Aaron slowly falls for Christian, even though he thinks he's shallow. The romance causes problems in both worlds. Christian tries to develop a conscience and ends up meeting Keith (Erik Palladino), a man dying of AIDS. Aaron has the difficult job of coming out to his mom (Mary Kay Place) and to his fellow missionaries. He comes against harsh criticism from the blatantly homophobic Ryder (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Latter Days won awards at the Philadelphia Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and L.A. Outfest. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

LATTER DAYS appears to be one of the more popular gay films of the past few years. But it does not strike me as the piece of 8-to-10-star material that other members seem to rate it. It does offer a pair of lovely, deeply-felt performances from its attractive leading men and from certain supporting cast members (others performances are not so hot, particularly those of the supposedly "straight" Mormons). While some of the dialog is quite good, other portions are filled with clunky exposition and obvious metaphor. And the road to the inevitable happy ending has too many unbelievable bumps, as is often the case with gay films. All told, for a gay movie, LATTER DAYS does rank a little higher than most. In general, I find that TLA (the releasing company here) ranks above WOLFE but below STRAND in terms of intelligent films for gays.

From wholesome family goodness, to unfair-yet-hilarious send ups, here's how hollywood sees latter day saints. PLEASE NOTE: MANY "MORMON MOVIES" ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL OR REQUEST FROM GREENCINE, OR ARE NOT YET ON DVD.
