Very few gay-themed films get a sequel, but The Falls is now preparing for the release of its third instalment. That’s thanks to the fact the first two movies are good, and that it’s gained enough fans to help with crowdfunding to get part three made.
The first film followed Mormon missionaries RJ and Nick, who fall in love even though they know they risk being rejected by their families and thrown out of their religion. The follow-up caught up with them after they had split up and Chris had married a woman. RJ meanwhile had fully accepted his sexuality, but hadn’t accepted the end of his relationship with Chris.
So what about the third film? Here’s the synopsis: ‘The Falls: Covenant of Grace picks up one year after the events of The Falls: Testament of Love. When the Church of Latter-Day Saints makes an announcement against the baptism of children of same-sex couples, RJ calls Chris to talk about his feelings towards the matter.
‘They decide to meet in Portland for a weekend to address their Mormon faith, and discuss their relationship. Together, they must decide whether to go their separate ways, or try to build a life together despite the disapproval of the Mormon church, and their family members. If they choose to be together, can their faith still play a role in their lives? Or will the two men have to choose between God and love?’
Breaking Glass Pictures will be releasing the movie in the US soon.
