Just Me

When Police Officer Connor (Carl Laughlin)  is doing house to house calls he is shocked to come across Scott (Philip Olivier).  It’s very obvious that the two have shared some intimate past, but before the subject can be broached they are joined at the front door by a woman (Chauntelle Bowler). She soon lets slip that she is in fact Scott’s fiance and they are about to get married in the coming weeks.  She invites a very startled Connor to join the Stag Party which he politely refuses saying that his S & M gear probably wouldn’t go down too well.  A remark that may have missed the mark with his fiance but hits home with Scott.

Come the night of the stag party in a local Liverpool pub, Scott is bored with his ‘straight’ mates and leaves them their and wanders off to the local gay club where a leather night is in full progress.  He sees Conner and at first is very reluctant to unwind, and when he finally does has a night he will not forget in more ways than one.

This entertaining short movie that focuses on the drama of Scott’s conflicted sexuality is the writing debut of James Mallen  and Thomas Sean Hughes and is helmed by TV  director Mickey Jones (Emmerdale, Coronation Street ). Philip OIivier , who is well known for his years in the Brit TV Soap Brookside puts in a finely nuanced performance as bisexual Scott. Olivier is no stranger to the LGBT community having once compered a Mr Gay Uk competition and has been  happy enough to shed all his clothes more than once to grace the cover of gay magazines.

There is a very convincing chemistry between Olivier and Loughlin which makes this wee tale so watchable.
