The feature film debut of YouTube and Instagram star Max Emerson, Hooked is a gripping, cautionary melodrama about a homeless gay hustler that plays out like a modern-day version of Midnight Cowboy.
Conor Donnally stars as Jack, an impulsive 18-year-old escort for both men and women. His boyfriend Tom, played by Sean Ormond, is an aspiring photographer on the run from his unaccepting father.
The two young lovers live in a dorm-like Manhattan youth hostel as they plan for a better future together. When an older, closeted and married gentleman named Ken, played by Terrance Murphy, meets Jack and whisks him away on a weekend trip to Miami, things turn ugly. Suddenly, the possibilities of Jack and Tom’s relationship are tested in new and extreme ways.
