Living hand to mouth Jeremy Ash blows off his only job to join a cattle call for a new, edgy film being made by screen writer Greg Falkner. Thinking he screwed up his audition Jeremy is stunned speechless when he’s asked back to read with Kit Harris.
A child ofHollywood’s elite, Kit Harris is trying to take his screen career from kid actor to the grownup role of a lead. His agent thinks taking this controversial role of a conflicted gay man will jump start everything for him. Besides, playing gay may be uncomfortable at times but he’s too heterosexual to worry too much.
The trite saying ‘opposites attract’ couldn’t be closer to the truth when Jeremy and Kit meet and go over a scene for the first time. Jeremy might be quietly gay and have a little bit of experience but nothing prepares him for the way he feels when Kit is near. As for Kit, every movement, every touch is a revelation for the man who always thought himself straight. Now, if they could just refrain from talking and saying the wrong thing, let their bodies communicate instead. Then life would be perfect. Through heaven or hell, by the time the movie wraps there will be No Apologies to make.
Acting Out balances high tension, character development, and a fascinating plotline with great skill. At the same time Jeremy and Kit take turns as the irresistible bad boy and the damaged soul. There are plenty of sizzling hot encounters as well as intimate moments that hum with sated pleasure. Emotional meltdowns and sun filled laughter are present too. Stunning from start to finish I Joyfully recommend Acting Out.
