With the style of a European art filmmaker, director/co-writer Eldar Rapaport tells the story of a gay love triangle by using innovative edits, a beautiful (frequently naked) cast and an exploration of how we find our life's love.

Reasons to Buy

  1. Before this movie, writer/director Eldar Rapaport earned great acclaim for his controversial short film Steam. You can see that short along with several other on the compilation Fest Selects: Best Gay Shorts.
  2. On top of the fact that it is relentlessly sexy, this flick features smart writing, brilliantly subtle performances and a unique, artful style that sets it far apart from your average gay indie.
  3. Next to the beloved British romance Weekend, August is easily one of the most acclaimed gay films to hit the festival circuit in years. I assure you, this one is a must see!

This film is far, far better than your typical gay indie flick. The production values are high, and the actors fully bring to life these interesting characters, who, while physically attractive, are not all necessarily likeable. I have read the ot... Read More

Hot man dumps BF and moves to Spain. BF finds even hotter BF. Hot man moves back to town and tries to take back BF. Well acted and filmed but pacing was much too slow for my tastes. Too much introspective gazing... Adrian Gonzalez can take off his... Read More

Overall, not a very well acted film. Stereotypical, nd not at all factual, portrayal of gay relationships. Not original at all. Screenplay could have been better well written to include more in depth look at why the character's made the choices they ... Read More

Saturday movie night: The 2011 release "August." My verdict? A *** 1/2 of ****. I wanted to like this film more than I did.

Here's why. Of the three main characters, Raul comes across as the most interesting, and sadly the most sympatheti... Read More

Now and then along comes a film that is far more adventuresome than the PR suggests and such is the case of the very well constructed AUGUST. Written and directed by Eldar Rapaport (with Brian Sloan) this is a hard look at love relationships and how ... Read More
