CGiii Comment

A very painful watch...not only because of the erratic split screen...but, who wants to watch a prissy, over-dramatic, ridiculously sensitive, tantrum throwing, pissed queen cause unnecessary trouble!?!

They laughed [quite possibly, innocently] and he threw a bottle!

It's a powerful film...wholly unpleasant though. But...it certainly makes a statement!

The(ir) Blurb...

David and his friends celebrates his 25th birthday with a nightly swim at the beach. The good mood quickly changes after a potential homosexual insinuation is made by some passersby. But was it their intention to be homophobic? Who owns the truth of what exactly happened?
