REVIEWS

Review by jeanie (posted on 4-Mar-2005)

Loved the Latter Days movie! I bought the movie purely by chance, not realising what an empact it would have on me. Steve Sandvoss and Wes Ramsey did a fantastic job in this movie. I think both of them have a very bright acting careers ahead of them. I know I want to see more! I loved the basketball scene where Christian flirts with Aaron and scores, and Aaron's buddy, Ryder running into the basketball pole {When Christian and his roommate stripped their shirts off, to be "skins"} really made me laugh out loud. The scene I loved the most, is when Aaron walks into "Lila's" and tells her the hell he had been going through. When he tells her of the voice like an Angel he heard and the vidio "3 AM" plays on the TV in a flashback, it gets me every time. I still cry when that scene comes on. The music score is fantastic. This is a must see movie! And it has a happy ending!

This movie started out looking like a flaky B movie. I bought the DVD just because I like to try movies I haven't heard of sometimes. As the movie progresses, it becomes clear that there is more to it that first appearances. The Mormon (the dreamy Steve Sandvoss) isn't as naive as he first appears and the 'LA pretty boy' (Wes Ramsey) turns out to find something real after all under his transparent surface. That and the way 'coincidences' are used as signs gives us a feeling of a deeper meaning of things. I highly recommend this movie if you have an open mind and want to believe.

I was totally knocked off my feet by this movie. If it had come out when I was 17, I'm sure my whole life would have been different. Love is a precious thing, and it's rarely ever depicted as real in gay movies. Most of them are so negative and such downers. This movie, however, grabs you by the throat at the onset and never lets go. I was put off by some of the language in one scene, but all in all, I have to say that this is now my favorite movie (too bad Star Wars). The two straight male actors who play Aaron (Steve Sandvoss), and Christian (Wesley Ramsey), both do an excellent job, as do Mary Kay Place and Jacqueline Bisset. However, the movie belongs to Steve Sandvoss. His uptight closeted Mormon Missionary is, to me, one of the most vivid and realistic depictions of a difficult character that I have seen in my lifetime. Steve Sandvoss is awesome. There's just not any other way to say it. I think he's got James Dean potential (but hopefully by living through it). I will be on the lookout for anything else that's he's in (Rumor Has It, I think is the slated film), but I will never forget Latter Days, and I will watch it again -- and again -- and again. C. Jay Cox deserves a medal for this movie, and, even though I really liked Sweet Home Alabama, I have to say that he outdid himself this time.


Review by smjeffrey (posted on 17-Apr-2007)

The is a superbly touching film. I had no idea it was about two gays who fall in love -- but it was so carefully crafted and well acted that I fell in love with it! I have no idea if Wes Ramsey and Steve Sandvoss are gay -- and I don't care! They are quite arresting in their performances. Jacqueline Bisset is, as always, superb -- as are the supporting players, especially the AIDs victim whose name I do not recall. Yes, the final "happy ending" scene seems, to some, a bit hokey -- but if you think about it, what better way to end a terrific love story. It may be fashionable to have unhappy endings -- but I'm delighted that this tale of unlikely lovers ended with an upbeat note -- and Bisset's toast to friendship and love!
