Luster [DVD] [2002]

Everett Lewis' gay-themed love story Luster, about a struggling poet looking to settle down, comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by the director, who discusses both the filmmaking process as well as the particular challenges faced by low-budget filmmakers. A making-of featurette rounds out this solid package that should help this little-seen independent film find a larger audience.

Written and directed by independent filmmaker Everett Lewis, Luster is a low-budget romantic comedy. Would-be poet Jackson (Justin Herwick) is tired of orgies and wants to settle down. While working at the record store owned by Sam (Shane Powers), he attracts the affection of good boy Derek (Sean Thibodeau). However, he would rather have bad boy Billy (Jonah Blechman), who's involved with rock star Sonny Spike (Willie Garson). Meanwhile, Jackson's cousin Jed (B. Wyatt) arrives in town from Iowa and agrees to get naked for lesbian photographer Alyssa (Pamela Gidley). The soundtrack features music by Pansy Division, Cecil Seaskull (from Nerdy Girl), and Third Grade Teacher. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
