Overview

A gay man nursing a broken heart finds love while looking for sex in this romantic drama from actor-turned-filmmaker Richard Lemay. Conrad (Matt Walton) is an advertising executive who has fallen into a funk after breaking up with his boyfriend of three years, Martin (John-Dylan Howard). While he's lonely, Conrad doesn't think he's ready for a relationship so he hires a good-looking hustler, Tyler (Sean Matic), for the evening. Conrad is surprised to find that Tyler is hardly the typical hustler -- he's smart, sweet, and personable, and Conrad discovers that his attraction to Tyler is not merely physical. As they get to know one another, Conrad discovers Tyler's real name is Ian and that he's an Australian who is looking for a way to stay in the United States. He's found a woman who is willing to marry him so he can get a green card, but only for a price, and he's turned to hustling to raise the money. Conrad tries to find a job for Ian in order to keep him away from other men, though that becomes all the more difficult when Conrad's boss gets a look at Ian. 200 American was screened as part of the 2004 London Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.

This is an adorable movie. It's low-budget and the acting is not spectacular, but nevertheless, it's a cute story with sexy characters and an impressive, unique plot. Conrad is a successful, attractive man recently heart-broken. Venturing into the unknown, he hires a sex worker for the night. As it turns out, his hired man, Ian, is quite the catch -- a young, charming, sexy Australian trying to save money to stay in the country. Soon enough, Ian is in Conrad's life every day, though not as you may think. As Ian moves into Conrad's social life, everyone's issues come to the surface. Love stories unfold and redevelop, problems at home collide with life at work, the truth behind Ian's need to do sex work comes out, and everyone is in for a wake-up call about life and what they need. Basically, it's genuine, it's cute and charming, and it deals with real-life problems, most of which just happen to be gay, a definite plus in my book. So give its budget a break and sit back and enjoy a film well-worth seeing.
