"Shelter" AKA my new favorite movie ;)  
So...I wasn't going to post anything this week, but after watching this movie last night, I can't NOT post about it! I watched it late last night and immediately wanted to watch it all over again.

You've probably seen this first via strippedpink and/or apostrophee, but I wanted to post about it myself (and provide some non-MU/MF links) because it's just THAT good!

"Forced to give up his dreams of art school, Zach spends his days working a dead-end job and helping his needy sister care for her son. In his free time he surfs, draws and hangs out with his best friend, Gabe, who lives on the wealthy side of town. When Gabe's older brother, Shaun, returns home, he is drawn to Zach's selflessness and talent. Zach falls in love with Shaun while struggling to reconcile his own desires with the needs of his family."

There isn't anything I dislike about this movie. I love all the characters (*happy sigh* Shaun is kinda perfect)...they're so real and the actors are excellent and well cast, I love the chilled pace of it, I love the cinematography, I love the soundtrack, and I love the message and the REALNESS of Zach and Shaun's progressing relationship. Also? I love that it's a gay themed movie that does NOT end in suicide/death/separation/angst. HAHA. Sorry, it just seems like there are an awful lot of unhappy GLBT themed movies.

And in case me saying that isn't enough to entice you to watch...Sorry for the lousy quality...I need a better program for screen caps clearly.

I have the movie uploaded on my site's server in a password protected folder split into five 300MB files that you can combine into one using a program such as HJSplit. The download speed on my server is pretty good, so it shouldn't take too long.


Drop a comment here if you are interested in downloading this movie! Which I hope many of you do since it's really a truly beautiful and wonderful movie. If you know others who might like this movie, I will give the username/password to anyone...I just can't have 200 people downloading 5 files all at once. I think my bandwidth might EXPLODE :P

But yes, please spread the word if people are looking to download this movie!

So I just got done watching it and wow. I love this movie. A lot. Can't remember the last time I've felt the need to go out and purchase a movie that I already watched for free but I think I need to get this one.
Do you happen to have the soundtrack as well?

I'd LOVE to see this film, especially as it doesn't take the doomed relationship route (why are they so hard to come by? *sigh*). Download, pretty please? :)
