coming out, only not as us boys know it!
Love Bite by Craig Boreham Have you ever wanted to come out to your best friend, but just did not know how to? Well in this effective and ever so short, short, Australian writer and director Craig Boreham charts the perennial favourite again, only not as us boys know it!

For schools out, but Noah isn't, ever nervous to come clean with who he is in the direction of his best friend Gus. Only with Gus lying on the bed, chest exposed, poor Noah is kind of distracted from getting to the point and uttering those life changing words: "there's something I need to tell you - something important." And we all know what that is. Or do we?

For here Boreham takes delight in leading the boys up the cinematic path to abruptly take a left turn, when all the signposts are pointing right! Only to say more would give the game away, that is if you haven't already guessed the twist in the tale, given the big clue to be had. Suffice to say, this is nothing more, but equally nothing less than three minutes worth of inventive fun from down under!
