Recently my friend Maury shared with me a 15-minute film short from 2006 with the title Davy & Stu. Taking place in a misty Scottish bog, it shows the playful teasing and longing between two teens. Davy (in the blue jacket) is well aware of his sexual orientation while the more rough at the edges Stu is struggling with his, but it's obvious he desires Davy's attention. After they perform somewhat of a mating dance, the film ends with a stunningly beautiful moment when Davy approaches Stu, gently places his hand under his collar, touches his chest and whispers to him that he smells nice and thanks him for cleaning up for their meeting. Stu responds by gently nuzzling Davie's neck - and then the camera moves away. This little gem of a movie, enhanced by the characters' lilting Scottish brogues, brought to mind Brokeback Mountain which interestingly, was released just six months before Davy & Stu.
