Give me ‘Shelter’

If it is possible to make a chick flick for college age males, it looks like Shelter might just be that.

Forced to give up his dreams of art school, Zach spends his days working a dead-end job and helping his needy sister care for her son. In his free time he surfs, draws and hangs out with his best friend, Gabe, who lives on the wealthy side of town. When Gabe’s older brother, Shaun, returns home, he is drawn to Zach’s selflessness and talent. Zach falls in love with Shaun while struggling to reconcile his own desires with the needs of his family.

In a slough of Rotten Tomatoes conflicting up and down votes you’ll have to decide for yourself whether last year’s Portland Lesbian and Gay film fest closer is a quality flick.

You have a chance to do so starting tomorrow at the Living Room Theaters. The Portland Lesbian & Gay Film Festival invites you and a guest to a special advance screening Wednesday, April 9 at 7:00 p.m. (Regular showings begin Friday). You can get your free pass good for two at lesbian owned Haven Coffee (3551 SE Division St). Seating is not guaranteed. You must 21 years old or older to attend this screening.
