From the sun-drenched beaches of Australia comes this sexy coming-of-age romance. Cute teen Midget Hollow (Jack Baxter) wanders through life riding big waves and partying with surfer boys. When Midget’s best friend’s gay brother Cass arrives on the scene, the two quickly dive head first into a clandestine sea of sexual awakening. As his lusty romance with the dark-eyed Adonis is soon discovered, Midget has to navigate between his friends’ reaction and his newfound love all while growing up during a hot summer of fun in the sun!
I thought I had seen more than enough gay coming of age stories. Some told well, others not so well. It’s a genre that is unbeatable: pretty young thing figures out who he or she is.
TAN LINES is a gay coming of age tale but it is amazingly up to date.
This movie is a wonderful surprise—a small gem, really. The photograph on the DVD and the title are actually misleading. The actor on the cover is not the lead, though he is good.
The standout performance in TAN LINES is the by the actor playing the main character. Jack Baxter is absolutely sensational as a smart and mouthy youth coming of age. He is attracted to other boys but also lets himself be distracted by females.
The Australian director of this movie has done a gorgeous job of creating a totally believable world of young slacker/surfers. This screenplay for TAN LINES is smart, funny, sexy, interesting and compelling.
Bravo to all involved, especially Jack Baxter!
