Craig Boreham’s follow up to Teenage Kicks (SFF 2016) explores desire, sexuality and isolation as two very different young men form an unlikely and surprising connection.
After being embroiled in a small-town scandal, Casey (Josh Lavery) heads to Sydney where he connects with Tib (Daniel Gabriel) via an app and ends up in an intense sexual encounter. Tib makes it clear that his casual hook-ups aren’t meant to linger but there is more-than-usual chemistry bubbling here. Soon, Casey is staying on Tib’s couch and the pair take on odd jobs around the city to make some cash. But while they draw closer, each revealing traumatic incidents from their lives, they struggle to concretise their connection. Sexually explicit and romantic, gritty and tender, the visually splendid Lonesome is a moving story of two scarred individuals overcoming their pasts to become open to the idea of love.
