CGiii Comment

Beautifully directed...the nudity is handled with skill!

Our only quibble...we don't buy into this whole hooker-who-bares-his soul kinda thing...

Good film though.

The(ir) Blurb...

A lonely and conflicted older man named Dave hires a young male sex worker named Johnny to spend a night with him in a motel room and be his first sexual experience with another man. Dave has spent his entire life trying to outrun his sexual attraction to other men. A devoted husband and father, Dave has carefully constructed a life he hoped would make him happy. But the harder Dave tries to force himself to be the man he believes he should be, the harder it is for him to resist becoming the man he's secretly always been. And as it turns out, Dave is not the only one with a secret; the intimate night the two men share forces Johnny to come face-to-face with a haunting moment from his past that he thought he'd left behind. JOHNNY is a story about finding the strength and courage it takes to accept responsibility for the choices you have made and the person you have become.
