"A truly unmissable short that's both touching and honest." - The New Current Magazine
(PRWEB) January 19, 2016
The award winning film, "Pretty Boy", is a coming of age story about a young, bullied teen (Sean) struggling with his sexuality and the hardships of high school. Sean's father (John) takes him to a motel and rents him a prostitute (Katie) for his 18th birthday. When faced with the prospect of 'fixing' his sexuality, Sean must confront his fears and true self, head on. Throughout the night, these unlikely two; the pretty boy and the prostitute, will find the support and strength for which they have been searching.
The film stars Nick Eversman (Wild, The DUFF), Rebekah Tripp (Break a Hip), and Jon Briddell (Secrets and Lies, Necessary Rougness). These three actors not only bring their talent to the screen, they also deliver a universal message of acceptance like no other film thus far. "Pretty Boy" has toured around the world from Los Angeles, California to Sydney, Australia in over 40 film festivals, winning 25 awards including Best Actor (Nick Eversman), Best Actress (Rebekah Tripp), Best Film, Best Drama, Best Screenplay, Best LGBT, Best Original Score (Lillard Anthony), Festival Favorite, and numerous Audience awards.
Cameron Thrower (Writer/Director) states, "I wanted to make a film that I needed to see when I was 17. "Pretty Boy" is that film. This film is a journey of discovery that examines a complex social dilemma that continues to plague our society. This film is meant to inspire our youth to follow their hearts, to seek out their true family if... the family they were born into isn't the family they're meant to be with. I'm confident "Pretty Boy" has the potential to reach an audience that will embrace it's message and feel empowered to be true to themselves."
