This multi-layered gem is - quite easily - a precursor to a main feature. It has all the elements in place...plus some damn fine technical talent...cinematography, editing.
Well, Mr Leighton-Dore you have produced something very special indeed.
After the unexpected death of his mother, a young football player, Julian Maxwell, finds himself struggling to support his depressed, unemployed father while fighting to keep safe the secret he once shared with his mother: He's not only gay, but performs drag shows. SHOWBOY is a film about family, loss and the exploration of freedom and sexuality in the face of affliction.
