Lust and jealousy get the better of everyone in the British drama Soft Lad

The feature-length directorial debut of Leon Lopez (and actor from British television staples like “Brookside” and “EastEnders”), Soft Lad takes us to present-day Liverpool for an examination of lust, jealousy and their unintended consequences.

Twenty-two year old David (Jonny Labey) has it all – he’s young, he’s hot and he’s just been accepted into the prestigious dance school of his dreams. But David also has a big secret: for two years he’s been sleeping with his sister’s husband, Jules (Daniel Brocklebank).

After an argument ensues between the two secret lovers, David throws himself into a one-night stand with Sam (Craig Stein), a casual encounter which quickly evolves into something much stronger.

Unable to express his feelings to anyone, Jules is slowly driven mad by his secret desire for David – and he’s becoming increasingly more jealous of his newfound, public relationship. When David’s sister, Jane (Suzanne Collins), insists he bring his new boyfriend over for dinner, Jules snaps, revealing in turn a secret which none of them can ignore.

You can watch the trailer for Soft Lad below. The film is now streaming on Dekkoo.
