One on One 2010
10min | Short, Comedy, Romance
A story about compromise, ‘One On One’ follow Alex and Trevor as they work out their relationship on and off the basketball court, after one of them asks the other one to join a waltz class together.
This is just a 10 minute movie, and it’s not pretending to be anything more. The story and the way it’s told are both tacky and cheesy, and sometimes the acting and the directing are kind of clumsy, but all of this in a charming lighthearted, unpretentious way. The story tackles a problem that a lot of gay couples have in some way or another: how open can we be. Where one partner feels ‘acting normal’ is acting like any loving couple would, the other partner feels awkward showing ‘too much gay-ness’ in public. With sympathetic actors that are pleasant to look at. I would like to see more from both of the main characters.
A simple little story told in a simple way. 10 minutes well spent. It left me with a smile.
