I Am Syd Stone (BOF12)

Drama | 11mins | English (Canada) | 2014

“When a much-desired Hollywood heartthrob returns to his home town for a reunion of sorts, he expects to rekindle an old closeted relationship but soon learns that things aren’t as they seem and secrets always catch up in the end.”

Written & Directed by: Denis Theriault
Starring: Gharrett Patrick Paon & Michael Gaty

I Am Syd Stone was ultimately satisfying, even if to begin with it felt unoriginal. It is well shot, well produced and well acted. It cannot be faulted for that. Where it shines is in the final few moments where things fall into place and a little bit of social commentary arises; namely that Hollywood doesn’t change at the same pace as society.

Things I Liked:
1 - All-round quality
2 - The ending
3 - The commentary on Hollywood

Things I Didn't Like:
1 - The initial exposition
