Shelter, I liked it.

22 Oct

A friend of mine had recently told me about this movie, and told me how good it was for an independent film. So my friend suggested I should watch it also. There are a lot of independent films out there are are so much better than things that come out in the theaters, so I decided to follow his word on it and watched the movie also.  The movie was called Shelter and I didn’t really do much reading or looking up on it so I just went straight ahead and watched it.

Well I started watching the movie and then I realized that this was more of a “coming out” type of movie (aka meaning it was a gay coming out) and I was like “Oh, no biggie”. And as the story progressed it became a really nice movie and I really did like the movie. The story was great the, character development were great, everything I think was just great. Shelter was a good movie to show the struggle that people have in their lives when trying to find out who they are.

When Zach(Trevor Wright) is Forced to give up his dreams of art school, he spends his days working a dead-end job and helping his needy sister care for her son Cody which he loves dearly. In his free time Zach loves to surf, he loves to draw and show his expressions in his art. Also when he is free Zach hangs out with his best friend, Gabe, who lives on the wealthy side of town, but when Gabe goes out of town and his older brother Shaun(Brad Rowe) returns home to get away from his problems. Shaun is drawn to Zach’s selflessness and talent and Zach falls in love with Shaun while struggling to figure out his own desires with the needs of his family and life.
