2012’s The Falls (read our review here) gained a lot of fans with its story of young Mormon missionaries RJ (Nick Ferrucci) and Chris (Benjamin Farmer), who fall in love with each other despite the fact they know being actively gay is strictly prohibited by their religion. While many had hoped that after the film’s credits it would be happily ever after for the couple, the sequel lets us know that wasn’t the case. [Read more…]
Back in April we reported that director Jon Garcia was seeking funding for a follow-up to his great gay-themed flick, The Falls. Well, he got the cash and the movie will premiere on October 5th at the Portland Lesbian & Gay Film Festival, with a US DVD release set for November.
The first film followed young Mormon missionaries RJ and Chris, who fall for one another despite the fact they know they risk excommunication if their relationship is discovered.
The sequel, ‘picks up five years after the doomed romance between Mormon missionaries RJ and Chris. Though their lives have taken radically different paths, the death of a mutual friend unexpectedly reunites the two men at a time when both are attempting to establish their adult lives. As old feelings of love and regret are rekindled, RJ and Chris must once again confront their seemingly impossible love. Will their reunion prove that they’re fated to be together, or is it merely a temporary fantasy?’
The trailer makes it seem like it’ll be well worth a look, with one of the men having embraced his sexuality, while the other has put the church first and done his best to be straight, complete with wife and kid.
