About the Film-
SHARED ROOMS explores the meaning of home and family through three interrelated stories of gay men finding connections during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day – a married couple who take in a teenage relative who was kicked out of his home after his parents discovered he was gay; a pair of roommates forced to share a bed for the week, much to the delight (and horror) of the one harboring a secret crush on the other; and two men looking for a quick hookup who end up finding a much stronger connection.
Philadelphia Magazine named SHARED ROOMS one of the must-see films at qFLIX Philadelphia, where it was the Closing Night Film. The reviewer said, “The final film of the festival might be the best of the pack. There hasn’t been a dysfunctional family drama/comedy like this done in LGBTQ cinema in a long time. Expect plenty of laughs from some breakout talent that proves impressive cinema still exists without all of the Hollywood glam.”
Edge Media Network called SHARED ROOMS “a big gay Christmas carol for our times” and said, “By keeping things low-key, Williams coaxes poignancy rather than soap suds out of his multiple storylines, and leaves a warm, lingering smile with his viewers.”
TLVFest – the Tel Aviv International LGBT Film Festival called SHARED ROOMS “a fun, entertaining film that is sure to leave you smiling and optimistic.”
