Had it not been for Birch(the super masculine, sexy, hunk with the beautiful face, body, and feet) co-lead in this film, I would give it only 3 stars.
My copy was apparently poorly duplicated. The first 45 minutes the audio was irregular and there was a hazy, gray static over the picture ( i was tempted to return it), but could have just been the low-budget filmmaking. Except for Birch, the acting is either very poor or simply "over" acting as in the case of the queeny boyfriend. Having lived for years in the back woods of New Hampshire, I appreciated the remote setting and enjoyed the comical agony of the city-slicker's inability to get cell phone connections.
Birch and the development of the relationship between him and the son makes the film entertaining, sexy, and even romantic. Things do cum, I meant to say "come" together, in the end...and that's a good thing.
Leather was better than I expected though not a great film. Sometimes, you simply want to be entertained with characters in which you can identify on some level. This film affords that opportunity for men who are attracted to men.
Be entertained. Birch, Birch, and Birch, again !
