One Sunday, he meets up with Ben after chatting with him on a dating app. As they spend the afternoon together, Jamie begins to wonder if he has finally met his match. A short film directed by Christopher Manning. Forming part of Boys on Film 16: Possession.

OMG - I'm loving it 5 seconds in already! SUBTITLES!! As a non-native speaker with concentration difficulties I need subs even if I perfectly understand what is said. I need subs in my own language as well, lol. So THANK YOU!!

@Ronnie Caron I agree that Brazil have good LGBT+ content! Have you seen "Sex of the Angels"? It's a love triangle about a woman and two guys and it has an unusual ending that I love. It's very high quality, top 5 films I've ever seen. Really recommend! Also, I live neighbouring to Finland and I can confirm - their language is basically chinese, haha! It's because it belongs in the finno-ugrian language group and is completely different than the romanian and german languages. It's so much easier to learn a new language within the same group, like italian and french, both are romanian and are therefore very similar in both shared word roots but also in grammar.

@Samir C. Cat I'm a native English speaker and I can only understand about half of what they are saying.
@Keenan Thomas I don't get how can people be that extremely cynical.

Samir, rather than the script, words, and subtitles, I believe what touched you was Sebastian's acting ability: his ability to express such nuanced emotions, over and over and over again, to convey pain, loneliness, terror, rejection, anguish, and those ever-so-slight moments of joy, that is who you did not need verbal language.

Great piece of filmmaking.

thought this might be the start of something especially when Jamie entered his phone number in Ben's phone. But, with the "I'll see you around" line and not "I'll call you soon" or let's get together again soon", I think this encounter was it with no more to come.

I don't understand why people interpret his tears as pain or disappointment. This is clearly a mix between relief, hapiness, and probably a bit of fear too. He's overwhelmed, not sad.

What a lovely short film. It brings to life the genuine awkwardness and uncertainty of a first date between two ordinary people. Left wondering how things went after.
E. D. (12 days ago)
Ah yes, the guys that never show up at all are the worst. If you can bother to set up a date to meet a stranger somewhere, then have the basic decency to show up. It is terribly hurtful to be stood up, even by a stranger. If you have a change of heart, the very least you can do is send a text and cancel the date ahead of time instead of leaving someone standing around in a public place searching, scanning faces........for nothing - it's a desolate feeling.

To love anyone should not have to be something we only dream about, but unfortunately because of the world we all live in and how certain communities still are prejudice the reality is heart breaking. Its more challenging to love someone, when you cant even love or accept yourself for who you truly are. Even more than being loved, we just want to be accepted. Regardless of what some people might think, God loves and accepts everyone. We make the choice to judge each other. 🙏🏳️‍🌈

Hey same name pal
I'm a 26 year old girl who is just straight up depressive, ¨adorably¨ insecure, kind of miserable, I tend to treat my mom so horribly for the past 8 years, can't understand his dad, selfish, hates herself to the guts that my stress cause me to eat horribly and for some type of IBS, has no ambiton, has never dated, being kissed, my whole life i have been more attracted to celebrity men physically and emotionally and i have been attracted to real life women more physically than emotionally, just like a stereotipical straight male fantasy......I mean who knows maybe someday i will find it emotionally and I'm insecure about it because most people will say that's the problem why people don't take bisexuality seriously which i agree but i can't help it...that's how i feel and it's embarrassing and confusing and i find gay stories (male and male) more exciting and sexy than an type of relationship so.....sometimes i will prefer to be a man just because of it, so...........this one of the few times i have watched a gay short film for the story part and not the love scene and i cried whenthey kissed and then i see David cry and oh dear Jesus! This was a well maid short film, well done! and it will go to my 'Romance Inspiration' playlist.

I think it is because of the tension and the relief after that kiss. I guess he hadn't dare to kiss a guy since that night with his friend.

Hello. I don't feel well with the end of this story, for me it's very strange, I don't see enought chemistry beetween the boys, the Age diferencies are hard, the inexperience of the young. It's sad seeing the dificulties that gay people suffer around the world to find true love and be Happy. Why some people can't respect the differences ? I'm affraid about what it's going to happend, because I Met some Guy more younger than me and we are chatting, and we are awaiting for having our fist date and I don't know what Will happend, if we could have the Spark, the connection. I really hoppe that he could be my true love. Thanks.

Being gay is lonely, and the harsh truth is that we should never show our emotions to others in the first meetings He finally find a guy he would love to know more but he sensed that he would never see him again so he cried It is just so hard to find that someone you like and at the same time he seems interested too
greg haley (23 days ago)
Dear, being gay does not have to be lonely at all. don't know your age or location, but you just need to be in a safer space/ location, and you can be fully you with no fear. I feared it would never happen when I was in my teens, but here I am, and my husband and I just walked from our house, hand in hand, down to the pedestrian area, and ate at a french restaurant, laughing with the staff and then ambled home, not a care in the world! we have MANY friends, gay and straight, and every time we go out we meet more people that want to know us.....not because we are super models but because we seem to put off happy , content energy that is somehow welcoming to people. hand in there!

Josh Yu (2 months ago)
The comments are very divided. Some people think this is a happy ending (he found a guy he likes, and can confide in), the others, sad (he realizes meeting up proved that they don't really have a spark, and Ben who's older and more experienced, isn't interested). . Can we come to a consensus? And none of that art is interpretive BS, screenwriters have a point when they make a script.
Escriche (8 days ago)
For me it is the first. He cries because of relief, not because he has been rejected.
inthesilentplanet (23 days ago)
It's obviously the second option, he cries, goes home to an empty house and fridge.

Damn the facial expressions these actors are making go so well with the deliveries of their lines! Makes it so much more believable. Plus the are taking their time with their dialogue, which helps with the delivery because they aren't trying to force their lines.

I wrote a comment when I first saw this film...and somehow it didn't post. But because I was so moved by the performances, I wrote another. What I left out in my previous post is my sentiments about the kiss: a kiss - especially the first - is something most of us ponder, remember, judge, and worry over. Will it be great? will it be embarrassing? This kiss is epic. The spontaneity and tenderness, the overt ache and hunger for acceptance is palpable and so beautifully expressed in the simplest and smallest of gestures. I can't believe this could be better portrayed...and it seems impossible to accept that the two men were simply acting. BRAVO!

BitterVoid (2 months ago)
I’m not exactly sure why he cried though. Was it the past story, the fact he has to go back to that horrible “home”, or that he kissed that guy (way to soon) and got like nothing back?
JZWALZ51 ROBIN (2 months ago)
I can relate to this. When one first comes out, searching for a relationship, there is that feeling of aloness. I recall this feeling, searching for that special someone who would "discover" me and all would be right with the world. When it did not happen right away, I felt frustration. I felt alone. I failed to realize that I was not really alone: I had my parents who loved me, my siblings, I had friends, I even lived on my own. But I wanted more, I wanted that one person whom I could love and love me. I eventually found this, but this short film reminded me of the feelings of frustration and longing when I was young.

Well, he was not sure of what happened. The guy said something like "see you around" and they made no plans to meet again. But he made sure to exchange information, so the outcome was not clear: he might call him or he might never see him again.

This era of social media dating is so foreign to me. Meeting through clubs, teams, organizations, friends, at work, even bars, provided a chance to observe someone before moving in or moving on. Deciding from photos then an isolated meet-up doesn't give much of a chance to make an impression. Poor Jamie, he obviously hoped for more, but didn't know how to ask for it.
Jamez Holong (1 month ago)
I wish every gay has the same privilege as meeting through all the media you've been mentioned above. Sadly, date apps is the only my option here :(
Josh Yu (2 months ago)
Bear with me for a sec as I ramble. Recently I came to this same conclusion... as of like, yesterday. I was trying to put my finger on EXACTLY what I didn't like about social media dating. And it's really that simple: you don't know them. They're a complete stranger with this entire past that you know nothing of. You have to learn all their physical quirks in that first meet-up. Whereas in person, you get the time to get to know them and get a feel for not only how they act to you, but act around others. There's just this certain pressure with meeting online. Especially if you've already been talking for awhile; it's hard to be like "Sorry, I'm not actually interested" just after that first meetup. Now that I think about it........... Holy shit. Most of my issues with guys I met up with were because I didn't know it existed beforehand. One hid his voice from me because it wasn't very attractive. Another hid the fact he was missing teeth. And a third was just way more flamboyant and extraverted than I was aware of, because you can't really pick up on that too much over text and call. These would've been dealbreakers, but since I already was talking to them, it felt wrong to end communication because of one or two faulty characteristics. It's the whole foot in the door persuasion tactic. But yeah, to your point, going from mere photos to an isolated meetup is quite the contrast. Like the character said, it's easy to flirt over text, but weird in person. That said, the characters were quite different. Main felt young and shy, other seemed older, more wise, less serious. Romantic disconnect.
