Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss

"It's just so damn likeable."
4 stars

Beautiful. Poignant. Touching. Okay, so maybe not, but this is one of the most enjoyable movies I've seen in a long time.

This was great. I mean, it's not 'the movie' that everyone should watch and have spasms talking about it's brilliance, but it does come close. Everything was there.
Sean Hayes, as Billy, is a photographer looking for both love and a little recognition from his calling. He meets Gabriel, a straight man questioning his sexuality, who just happens to fit perfectly with the photo shoot Billy is preparing to execute. The idea is to recreate classic movie scenes and title the exhibit "Hollywood Screen Kiss".
What ensues is a wonderful little concoction filled with great performances, especially that of Sean Hayes. I was also impressed with the superb camera work and the directing.

I really don't know what to say about this movie that hasn't been said already, somewhere, so I'll just tell everyone that all you need to enjoy this movie is a sense of humor and an eye for photography. It's great.
