The Conrad Boys
The Conrad Boys ★★ 2006
After his mother dies, 19-year-old Charlie Conrad (Lo) must put off his own plans in order to care for his young brother Ben (Stewart). Their alcoholic father (Shay) has been out of the picture for years but suddenly reenters their lives, sober and wanting to make amends. Charlie has more troubles than just his family—he's succumbed to drifter Jordan (Bartzen), who has charmed his way into the Conrad home and Charlie's bed. Lo's ambitious and the gay aspects are taken matteroffactly but the story seems overly familiar. 93m/C DVD .
