Product Description

Award-winning British director Paul Oremland brings you two gritty and contemporary feature length films that couldn’t be any more different save for one similarity – both heroes are gay men.

‘Like It Is’ follows closeted bare-knuckle fighter Craig (Steve Bell Coronation Street) who falls in love with record executive Matt and follows him to London, despite not being able to handle intimacy and the fact that Matt’s friends want Craig gone.

In ‘Surveillance’, Adam (Tom Harper) hooks up with a handsome guy (Sean Brosnan) only to discover that he is then murdered by the secret police for having information on a supposedly gay member of the Royal Family. Before long, Adam is being followed by special agent spies who want him dead!
