Confident that he can bag any guy (gay or straight) , gorgeous Chris makes a bet with his flat mate that he can have sex with Aaron in no time.Although starting to be infatuated with Chris, Aaron tries to hide his feelings.He catches up with Aaron at the airport, telling him that he loves him. When I saw his name among the cast, I grabbed Latter Days. Being a big fan of Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal and an admirer of Ang Lee, I was sure I was going to watch a feast of a movie. The cinematography was brilliant as the trailer promised but I just failed to like the characters. Yes, I did see some flicker of the love implied during some scenes, but that was it. I also watched as he can pull of difficult roles like a male hustler in Mysterious Skin and a guy whose past mistakes haunt him, in addition to having to cope with everyday life with severe short term memory lost in the film The Lookout.While Chris is trying to seduce him (sometimes subtly and sometimes quite openly), the two develop a bond.And it all goes downhill for our missionary when his friends catch them kissing…The main story takes place between Christian and Aaron; played respectively by Wes Ramsey and Steve Sandvoss.
After all, homosexuality is considered to be one of the biggest sins and he likes his mission.
He does believe in God and (most of ) “the book” ’s teachings.
Panicked, he decides to go home to his parents and confront whatever problems await him.
But Chris, no longer caring about the bet and totally in love, goes after him.
But then I stumbled upon the DVD of Latter Days and saw a really romantic, emotional and fun story. Rock from the Sun- a show that made me laugh till my muscles hurt.
It turned out he only had a supporting role, which was just as interesting as his previous roles.
