Dir. John G. Young. 2017, 87 mins. Digital projection. With Anthony Rapp, Jimmy Brooks, De’Adre Aziza, Jermaine Rowe. A suspenseful, deeply affecting, and sharply observed drama about erotic longing and emotional connection, John Young’s bwoy stars Anthony Rapp as a suburban man who becomes entangled in a chaotic, passionate online affair with Yenny, a young Jamaican man. “Control and emotional intensity are perfectly balanced in John G. Young’s bwoy, a minimalist indie in which action is largely mediated by phones and screens,” wrote Amy Taubin in Film Comment. “Young’s measured direction and editing and Rapp’s performance are extraordinary for showing how easily repression and guilt can create a dissociated fugue state where virtual and actual become indistinguishable.”
