The writer asks a big ask...to accept a [rather implausible] co-incidence, all is fair if you can take this [happily] onboard.
However, O'Donnell certainly knows how to take his time about it...to the detriment of the film...and, to the co-incidence itself. Talk about over-cooking the meat!
It's not a terrrible film by any stretch of the imagination...it just needed a little bit more imagination...throwing out the 'co-incidence' in the first 10 minutes or so would have been a good place to start...focusing on young gay love in the mid-west by two idylic lads who share a rather strange connection...yes, it's that co-incidence again!
Repetition in not the way to write a review...nor, is it a way to make a film...it's all too groundhog!
Benny, a college freshman at the University of Akron, Ohio meets and falls for fellow freshman Christopher at a football game. With the support of their families and friends they embark on a new relationship. But a tragic event in the past involving their mothers soon comes to light and threatens to tear them apart. Akron is a moving family drama and a sensitive young adult love story of two young men falling in love in the Midwest and their will to overcome the most painful of truths.
