Quirky and Well WrittenBy a customer from London , 27 Feb 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]I enjoyed Dorian Blues. I didn't really have great expectations for it, but was pleasantly surprised.
For what it is, it's well written and well acted by the lead characters. It's quite funny in parts, mainly due to Dorian's quick wit and dry sense of humour.
Definitely worth a watch.

Surprisingly goodBy Blondoner (38 reviews) from London , 20 Apr 2012At at time when I was about to give up on US gay movies by the film company 'tla' this was actually a very refreshing and lovely film. It is about the coming out of a late teenager/early twen who has a very close relationship to his straight brother and a not so close relationship with his conservative father.
I'd definitely watch it again at some stage. It was really good!
Surprisingly good.By ICB (3 reviews) , 29 Feb 2012A coming out movie that avoids a lot of the cliches of the genre. Funny and likable without excessive sentimentality and does not require too much suspension of disbelief to enjoy. Well worth watching.
Witty and feel-goodBy MatthewB (1 review) , 23 Jul 2011This film was a pleasure to watch - a real hidden gem. The description led me to believe it was a run-of-the-mill, cheesy US 'coming out' comedy like many others. As it turned out, it was a well-scripted, sweet-natured and fairly unpretentious drama.
The acting was impressive - Michael McMillian, in the lead role, is very convincing as the deadpan and wryly self-deprecating Dorian; on occasion throughout the film, his character's humour lifts up in a sincerely heartwarming (and very cute) way. Steven C. Fletcher as his conservative dad is also great in the way he plays his darkly comic character.
Definitely recommend as a feel-good film which is also intelligent and witty.
A bit tame but easy viewingBy PRAlchemist (39 reviews) from Ely , 21 Jan 2011An enjoyable film, easy viewing but tame. I expected something to happen but it never really does. Just a same old, same old type coming out story that never really gets anywhere. Despite this the characters and acting are good enough to make it worth watching.
not badBy a customer from glasgow , 06 Dec 2010This is just another story of a boy coming of age living in the shadow of his older brother until he goes to college & finds out theres more to him than meets the eye
