Deep End (BOF9)

Drama | 11mins | English (Canada) | 2011



“When Dane’s older brother comes out, Dane doesn’t react very well. But soon after he has to choose between siding with his homophobic classmates or fighting to support his brother.”


Written and Directed by: Bretten Hannam
Starring: Bailey Maughan, Gharrett Patrick Paon & Denis Theriault


Deep End is moving in it’s refinement and simplicity, and a testament to changing times. Stories of ‘coming out’ are usually tarred with drama and conflict but Deep End shows that it’s not always like that; but doesn’t detract from the difficulty in the act itself. Beautifully it shows that above everything else, brotherly love overcomes the pressures of society.


Things I Liked:

Things I Didn't Like:
1 - Erm... too short?
