Those People

those peopleWolfe Video releases a new gay male indie this week, Those People starring the talented and scrumptious Haaz Sleiman (The Visitor, Nurse Jackie). The story centers around a group of college/post-college friends orbiting around the one über-rich Sebastian whose father has just been sent to jail for embezzling charity funds. Jonathan Gordon and Jason Ralph play Charlie and Sebastian, best friends for 15 years. Charlie has an unrequited crush on the wealthy and pompous Sebastian. Think Michael and Brian from Queer as Folk with a lot more money. Extremely high production design and decent acting make this a watchable film. Melodramatic twists and tell rather than show limit the excellence of the piece. Mixing all that together left me wanting more. Too bad. Lots of promise coupled with good and occasional great performances from the three leads. 3 out of 5 for Those People.
