Overview

A gay man embraces a new life only to find out how difficult living in the big city can be in this drama from debuting director Scott Boswell. Anthony (Raphael Barker) is an aspiring poet in his mid-20s who was born and raised in Virginia but has finally pulled up stakes to relocate to San Francisco. Anthony has been invited to share an apartment with Stephen (Scott Cox) after they met during a trip to the East, but while their relationship starts well, it isn't long before Stephen grows resentful of his new partner, and Anthony has to find a new place to live. Working at a movie theater and living in a small flat on the shabby side of town, Anthony strikes up a friendship with Gavin (Adam Perez), a homeless runaway who's new in town and occasionally turns tricks to support himself. Anthony and Gavin are clearly drawn to one another, but while Gavin is young enough to be excited by the risks of life on the streets, Anthony wants a more stable lifestyle, and even as they two provide emotional support for one another, their differences are just as evident as what they have in common. The Stranger In Us received its world premiere at the 2010 San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival.
