After watching the trailer for Wild Awakening it’s a bit difficult to know what to make. The film heads into full-on melodrama territory, taking its cues from telenovelas, while adding in a fair dose on man-on-man action. I’m not sure whether it’s meant to be funny or not, or whether it’s just a bit camp, but I’d like to find out!
The movie follow promiscuous gay man Toni, who lives with his sister Emma on a horse farm they inherit when their parents died. The foreman of the equestrian facility wants his son Aaron to fall in love with Emma. However, Aaron has a hidden sexual attraction hidden for Toni. There’s a big problem with that though, as Aaron’s dad isn’t going to allow that, as he has no intention of having a gay boy for a son!
Wild Awakening is due out on DVD and VoD in the UK. However, you can get a first taste of this mix of high drama, campness, hot guys and villainous homophobes below.
