Endgame

Movie Summary

Director:
Gary Wicks
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13
A moody, stylish and sex-charged English thriller that stars Daniel Newman as Tom, a rent boy who is kept by George Norris (McGann), a sado-masochistic gangster. Tom is kept in high style in a London flat filled with pop art and a bedroom set up, not only for sex, but also for blackmail with a hidden camera focused on the red silk bedsheets. Tom is being sucked down into a nasty scheme involving drugs, money and protection by Norris' connection with a crooked gay cop Dunston (John Benfield of Prime Suspect). Things turn nasty rather quickly in this fast-paced thriller as we glimpse scenes of Tom being beaten by his boss and sent in to a bar as part of a scheme to rough up the owner. As a way to introduce some sanity into his dark and abusive life, Tom befriends a straight American couple downstairs and is invited to dinner at their flat. When Tom returns to his flat, Norris starts a jealous spat with his boy and Norris is accidentally killed.moreless
