Shelter is a gay film. The videos listed below do contain m/m physical intimacy, though nothing overly graphic. If that offends you, please skip them.
What About Now?
Hold on to the Night
Only the Lonely
Description: Zach is a good guy who steps in and takes care of his young nephew, Cody, because his single parent sister is more interested in having a good time then taking care of her son. Zach's sister uses Zach through the whole movie, and he is more a parent to Cody than either of the boy's real parents. Because of his kind heart in taking care of his nephew, Zach has given up on his own dreams of going to art school and doesn't really live a happy life, never really being able to go out and have fun or do what he wants.
Zach's best friend's older brother, Shaun, returns after years of being gone. A successful writer, he sees Zach again, only now Zach is all grown up and not just his kid brother's best friend. Shaun develops feelings for Zach, and is accepting and good to Cody. Zach has a girlfriend and struggles with his own developing feelings for Shaun. In the end Zach's sister skips town leaving her son completely with Zach...and Shaun.
The lyrics tell the story, but basically both men were taken by surprise by the change in their relationship and had a hard time dealing with it. Especially Zach, who has a girlfriend.
This video starts from Shaun's POV and ends with Zach's. You can easily tell whose POV is being presented because my video is pronoun correct. When the lyric says "I" the character on the screen is the character' whose POV is being presented, when he refers to 'you' it'll show the one that character is referring to. Make sense? I'm kinda anal about proper video grammar LOL

Description: Another Shaun and Zach video
Only the Lonely - Shelter (Shaun & Zach) from strawberrybisque on Vimeo.
Description: Forced to give up his dreams of art school in order to take care of his family, Zach has become accustomed to a life where he neglects his own needs. When his best friend’s older brother, Shaun, returns home to cure a case of writer’s block, Shaun and Zach develop a friendship that develops into a true, intimate relationship. Shaun presses Zach to take control of his life, and to take ownership of his artwork. Zach struggles with his identity, while trying to understand the new emotions Shaun has brought into his life. Zach is forced to decide between his pattern of always putting others’ desires first or fighting for what is really most important for his future.
This is now one of my new favorite films. I saw it two days ago and had to make a fanvid for it! I didn't particularly care for Brokeback Mountain, I didn't find either of the main characters to be particularly likeable - I didn't really care about them, and I never felt like they were both in love. To me it seemed like Jack might have been in love but that Ennis was maybe just in lust. The ending didn't phase me, I didn't even get teary eyed and I'm a very emotional person. This is where Shelter succeeded (for me), Shaun and Zach were likeable, I cared about them and wanted them to have a happy ending. Even though Zach struggled, his love for Shaun was clear. This film didn't have the big budget or the big name actors that BBM had, it's just a 'lil ole indie film, but I think it was really beautifully done and I'm glad I took the time to watch it.
