About the Film
Twenty-two year old David has it all – he’s young, hot, and he’s just got into the prestigious dance school of his dreams. But he has a secret: for two years he’s been sleeping with his sister’s husband, Jules. After an argument between the two lovers, David throws himself into a one-night stand with Sam, a casual encounter which fast becomes something much stronger. Unable to express his feelings to anyone, Jules is slowly driven mad by his secret desire for David, and jealous of his newfound, public relationship. When David’s sister, Jane, insists he brings his new boyfriend over for dinner, Jules snaps, revealing in turn a secret which none of them can ignore. Soft Lad is the directorial debut from Leon Lopez, an examination of lust, jealousy and their consequences in contemporary Liverpool.
This is an amazing film showing real life issues. Script and actors show it brilliantly- well done to all involved a great piece of work by Leon Lopez and look forward to seeing more from him
Despite its low budget, this is a powerful, well-written and beautifully acted film. There’s a rawness, and yet at the same time a real heart beating at its centre, which is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. And there’s a human tragedy at its centre, too, which is Shakespearean in scope. Many low budget gay-themed films (and there is plenty here for straight audiences to enjoy and identify with) can be disappointing. But like Weekend before it (though they are very different films) this soars with ambition and humanity. Highly recommended.
Great acting, Great story, Amazing Film.
