Cowboys & Angels ★★★ 2004 (PG)

Shane (Legge), a straightlaced 20yearold decides to break away from his family and move to the city on his own. He takes an apartment with Vincent (Leech), a charismatic gay art student. They strike up a friendship, and Shane develops the confidence to create a new life for himself, with its fresh possibilities and dangers. Hip, appealing Irish comingofage film with a great, unknown cast. Notable for its portrait of a healthy gay/straight friendship. 90m/C DVD . Michael Legge, Allen Leech, Frank Kelly, David Murray, Amy Shiels; D: David Gleeson; W: David Gleeson; C: Volker Tittel; M: Stephen McKeon.
