Dream House


Middle-aged, gay Mark lives with his elderly mother, Ginnie, in the grand manor of their youth, now deteriorating like his dreams for a better life. When Ted is hired to restore the house to its former glory, he jolts Mark into a decision that will change their lives forever.


A uniformly terrific cast brings this story of a mother and son held together by their deteriorating home to life. The film has a strong feeling of longing and suppression throughout. Great cinematography and sound design makes the house a character as well, you imagine all the history held within its walls. Congratulations to the Dream House team.
