Inspired by true events, Todd Verow’s Tumbledown is an explosive cocktail- an emotional roller coaster ride through the dark sides of sexuality. A complicated love triangle develops after hunky Jay meets bartender Rick and invites him to spend the weekend with him and his partner in their country cabin. Soon, copious amounts of sex, drugs and alcohol lead to a dark obsession and even darker complications.
Tumbledown is named for Tumbledown Mountain where this film was shot and there’s some mighty pretty scenery there. Too bad we did not get a film to match the scenery.
Supposedly Tumbledown is based on a true incident where Todd Verow who also wrote and directed the film invites a hunky 30 something bartender in a gay bar to spend some time in the woods where Verow has a cabin. The bartender Todd Hallowell eagerly agrees and is even more eager when he sees Brett Faulkner, Verow’s young twink of a boyfriend.
But Verow does something quite irreversible to both of them and in the end they feel they have to take measures.
None of these performances were anywhere close to Oscar caliber. They’re not even spectacularly bad for Razzies. The sex scenes to cover a lot of bad acting. Practice guys, practice, the acting not the sex, you’re already good there.
