Shelter (2007)

Forced to give up his dreams of art school, Zach spends his days working a dead-end job and helping his needy sister care for her son. In his free time he surfs, draws and hangs out with his best friend, Gabe, who lives on the wealthy side of town. When Gabe’s older brother, Shaun, returns home, he is drawn to Zach’s selflessness and talent. Zach falls in love with Shaun while struggling to reconcile his own desires with the needs of his family.

This movie is Over The Top!!! the idea of the story was simple, but the director could make this movie into something beautiful, the pace was perfect, and every detail are just right, there was nothing to add nor to lessen. It has the same quality with Brokeback Mountain which is, imo, the greatest gay themed movie so far.

And I love the ending, it made me feel warm and fuzzy, oh how I wish I could have the same happy ending *wishful thinking*

best quote:

Zach: Not everyone can’t have what they want!

Shaun: You won’t have what you want, unless you take it!

  2. Just watched Shelter with my boyfriend last night. Wow, what an awesome movie. Made me feel warm & fuzzy too. It even made me feel inspired. I feel like I’ve been given a glimpse to the secret of eternal happiness.
