Blond haired, blue-eyed Johnny travels to the island of Eleuthera intent on finding some artistic inspiration. After arriving, he meets the confident, attractive black musician Romeo and it is instantly clear that there is a spark between them. Although Romeo has a fiancé, he has secretly played with boys on the side before – but Johnny is not just any boy, and soon their relationship becomes far more intense than a simple fling. Struggling to overcome rampant homophobia, and an anti-gay crusade erupting around them, it is going to take more than wishful thinking for their love to last. A beautifully shot, captivating romance, CHILDREN OF GOD paints a universally relevant portrait of desire, sexual conflict, tolerance and self-acceptance.
Very engaging movie, well worth renting... the directing could have been more subtle
L'action est située aux Bahamas, c'est continuellement au coeur de l'histoire. L'homophobie, l'amour interracial, les conflits entre jeunes sont bien présents. Ça pourrait être moins convenu mais ça reste à voir.
