Good love stories have both an element of truth and a bit of fantasy in their DNA. Our next Rialto Recommends feature was a big hit on the LGBT film festival circuit in 2007 before going on to theatrical runs and home video. Forced to give up his dreams of art school, Zach works dead-end jobs to support his sister and her son. Questioning his life, he paints, surfs and hangs out with his best friend Gabe. When Gabe's older brother returns home for the summer, Zach suddenly finds himself drawn into a relationship he didn't expect. The San Francisco Chronicle raved "Shelter rises very high indeed, thanks to a superb performance by Trevor Wright in the lead role, a strong supporting cast, very good cinematography and, most of all, emotional authenticity." While the Seattle Times said "What could have been a standard-issue coming-out, coming-of-age movie develops a remarkable intimacy." Check out Shelter for a modest rental fee on Google Play HERE.
