    A Fun And Endearing Trek

    It¿s great to see such an endearing movie that doesn¿t rely on the usual gay storylines of AIDS, coming out, or campy drag queens. Wearing it¿s heart on its sleave, ¿Gone, But Not Forgotten¿ is a charming, adult, romantic love story with a touch of mystery from writer, director, producer, and editor Michael D. Akers. This guy does it all and on a shoestring budget! But with an intriguing story and a fine cast it¿s first class all the way! Shot on digital video, which does give it a home video feel to it and takes some getting used to, but once you settle in, it¿s an enjoyable trek. Shot in and around Yosemite National Park the story revolves around an openly gay forest ranger named Drew (Aaron Orr) who¿s rescued a young man, Mark (Matthew Montgomery), from an accident that leaves him with amnesia in a smalltown hospital. Drew takes him ¿under his wing¿, they develop a friendship, and ultimately a relationship. But as the story unfolds and Mark begins to remember his past, through a series of flashbacks to what led up to his accident, he begins to question who he is and where he is headed. Is he gay or straight? Will he stay with Drew or go back to his previous life, whatever that may be? Mark¿s not the only one with secrets but Drew holds some of his own as well regarding his past and his relationship with his brother. They¿re all revealed as the story continues and ultimately come together in a satisfying ending. Rounding out the film are some supporting roles played by Joel Bryant as Drew¿s estranged brother Paul, Brenda Lasker as the sister-in-law and Bryna Weiss as Dr. Mary Williams. There are some moments that seemed a bit over-the-top and somewhat unbelievable, but as a first time effort Michael Akers has done a fine job with his ensemble cast. But it¿s the male leads that drew me in and found their relationship sweet and charming. The culmination between the two comes in the form of one of the best, most intimate, sex scenes I¿ve seen and is most tastefully done. The questions the story posed were also intriguing with regards to amnesia, sexual orientation and past memories. Intriguing. It¿s not without its flaws but overall I really enjoyed this independent film and look forward to Mr. Akers next directorial effort. Grab a big bowl of popcorn, settle back on your couch and enjoy!
