Two stars of rival British soap operas – Coronation Street’s Daniel Brocklebank and Eastenders’ Jonny Labey – have come together and they’re having an affair, or at least they are Soft Lad, which is due out on DVD in the UK in November.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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 new found, 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.’
