Everything Has a Price

Director: Carl Medland

Writer: Carl Medland

Stars: Christopher Kelham, Michael Joyce


Dale is an attractive, hard-as-nails gay male escort in Greenwich, London. He specialises in fulfilling sexual fantasies – dressing up as a schoolboy, BDSM, you name it, he’s done it, yet his own dreams of a happy ending are complicated when straight best friend and childhood crush Raj announces his forthcoming marriage. Meanwhile, a spate of gay hate crimes are being reported on the local heath…

Co-starring Michael Joyce, better known on the London gay scene as flamboyant drag artiste Estee Applauder, and Brazilian beefcake model Israel Cassol, Carl Medland’s gritty love letter to East London winningly combines the heady romance of ‘Beautiful Thing’ with the darker side of London life.

  • Some brilliant central performances and a resolve that is smart, original, and affecting
