The hilarious dark high school comedy Guidance is now available on Dekkoo

Guidance follows David Gold (writer/director/star Pat Mills), a 36-year old, pathologically immature former child actor who has never been able to get over his high school years. Recently diagnosed with skin cancer, unemployed and with nothing left to lose, he fakes his resume and gets a job as a high school guidance counselor.

Quickly winning over the students at Grusin High with his laidback attitude and similar interests, he befriends Jabrielle (Zahra Bentham), a teenage outcast, and soon learns that sometimes you can go too far, especially when it comes to committing a ridiculous crime.

Hailed as a “Grade A” comedy by the Los Angeles Times and named as a Critic’s Pick by The New York Times, Guidance is riotously funny, filled with fast-paced comedic timing, witty dialogue and a winning performance from jack-of-all-trades creator Pat Mills.

Short Film Spotlight: Daniel. Noah.

Noah (Spencer Carter) is a neurotic writer who spends the majority of his time idling in a New York townhouse owned by his mother Carla (Victoria Guthrie). Noah lives there all alone… until his childhood friend Daniel (Gabriel Sloyer) moves in.

Invited by Carla in a misguided attempt to set the two of them up (even though Daniel is straight), Daniel is hoping to use the space as an office in which to start his new psychiatry practice. He gets more than he bargained for, however, as Noah insinuates himself into the role of a patient. Identities begin to blur until both men end up on the therapist’s couch.

Dubbed “an anal-retentive, narcissistic love story,” this 13-minute short film from writer/director Daniel Goldberg has the same smart, “neurotic New York City dramedy” feel of the work of Noah Baumbach and Alex Ross Perry. Check out the trailer for Daniel. Noah. below and visit Dekkoo to watch the full film.

Now Available: My Life with James Dean

Invited to present his first feature film, My Life with James Dean, in Normandy, the young director Geraud Champreux (Johnny Rasse) has no idea this film tour is about to change his life. His movie – a LGBTQ tale of carnal passion – doesn’t seem the most likely title to move waves at the cinemas; and Geraud is as concerned about breaking up with the film’s leading man as in promoting his movie. And yet, the film and Geraud begin to collect supporters, from the frumpy receptionist at the chintzy hotel he puts up at, to a local cultural activist who books the cinemas and has love problems of her own, to the young projectionist at the first cinema where it plays, who falls head-over-heels in love with Geraud. As the promo tour careers from dire screenings to trawler trips and drunken evenings, Geraud ends up finding inspiration in this unlikely town in the North of France.

Directed by Dominique Choisy, My Life with James Dean is a charming, candy-colored “fish out of water” comedy that doubles as a love letter to cinema itself. Check out the trailer below and head on over to Dekkoo to watch the film.

New Gay Series: How It All Began

Dennis (Dennis Nollette), a late-middle-aged gay man, wakes up to discover Zach (Zach DuFault); an attractive, much younger man, in his bed. Is Zach just a one-night stand… or is it more than that? Sexy, subversive and sweet, this 10-episode series explains How It All Began.
