Urbania Movie Synopsis
This film follows Charlie (Futterman) as he wanders the streets and bars of New York City in search of his boyfriend, Chris. During his search he keeps running into a number of different urban legends. Finally he meets Dean (Bell), a man he's met before and who might know the whereabouts of Chris, as well as the answers to Charlie's existential questions.
An intelligent and often disturbingly real film which deals (correctly) with homophobia and the violence often inflicted upon homosexuals. Brilliantly acted!
It was a great film with an awesome twist of events. I like the idea of having the audience think the film is about one thing and end up with a total change if mood. It is a film that makes you say "WOW!" by the end.
I thought it was an interesting way to tell a story. I thought the performances were excellent, particularly Futterman`s. The film was cathartic. A film with an intent well executed.
