B&B to my surprise, is a pretty decent flick. It definitely skates close to B-movie territory despite its very timely subject matter but it's fast, effective, and even offers a few genuine surprises. If nothing else, after years of seeing many films similar to this, it's awesome to see LGBTQ characters headlining one.
Sure, it's heavy-handed and features some clunky dialogue but it makes up for it by smartly knowing to zig when you expect it to zag. The leads are solid but it's Paul McGann's steely turn that I appreciated the most. I dug the simple score as well.
As far as psychological thrillers go, you could seriously do a lot worse. I enjoyed and was amused by this enough to recommend a one-time watch to the curious.
