Strength In ShelterBy a customer from Southampton , 01 Sep 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]I was pleasantly surprised at just how good this film was. The whole production, from casting to filming had a feel of a movie of a much grander budget. The writer was allowed to let the story unfold naturally without rushing to the gay bit; the acting sublime and characters were very real and likeable. Im not into surfing at all but I enjoyed those scenes as if was absorbed in the sport. What I really found refreshing was just how realistic the love story was wove in to the fabric of these peoples lives and although it was present it wasnt the overriding theme of this classy picture, that was about the struggle of trying not just to live, but exist when you have hardly any money or anything at all. Would I rent it again? No, I bought the film ten minutes after I finished watching it!

"Who Knew There'd Be So Much Drama Inside The Gates Of Pacific Bluffs"?By a customer , 19 Dec 2012Anyone who is Gay has been here and 'Shelter' gives a good balanced story on the trials and tribulations, of coming to terms with your sexuality. This film shows the excitement, fear and ache of your first love.
Great Film!By kewldavey (1 review) , 08 Nov 2012Rented this with a hefty dose of cynicism as so many gay genre films are beyond terrible. I was therefore so surprised and thrilled when I watched Shelter! The story is touching, sensitive and easily relateable too regardless of sexuality. It was refreshing that two straight actors could give such a genuinely affectionate performance.
If you care more about narrative and acting talent than semi-naked teens running about the joint in some pointless cliche of a film then WATCH THIS because it is BRILLIANT!
loved itBy a customer , 03 Oct 2012what a fantastic suprise of a little gem of a film .... so enjoyed the whole film from story to acting, nice to watch a gay film that seems very main stream
