Review: (#1) This is a rather inert design that feels lazy in its attempt to invert an image that would typically be used. It’s not revolutionary. (#2) Not a design we often see on posters because of its “taboo” quality. That’s impressive, but the design isn’t. (#3) It’s a place-in-time design that doesn’t feel very exciting. (#4) The first design, but a bit more bolder in terms of color, but not bolder in terms of creativity.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: A gay man wants to settle for being straight because he can’t find a man to successfully date is disingenuous at best and self-serving at worst. The trailer does a poor job convincing the viewer that he’ll better understand himself by the film’s end. It does, however, have an unusual cadence and a few bits of interesting humor.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
