South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival
Title: Leather Jacket Love Story
Specs: USA 1997 video 85min
In this alternately erotic and amusingly b& w comedy – heaving with leather, torsos, oil, piercing, and handcuffs – dreamy, sensitive, angelic Kyle gives up his hedonistic, insipid life in West Hollywood with best-friend Ian to seek inspiration and real-life in bohemian, funky Silver Lake.
Slipping straight into the café culture he meets fellow poets and is given the well-intentioned protection of the three sisters.
He also meets Mike, a leather-wielding, bike-riding, 30-year old stud of the world.
The attraction is instant and Kyle thinks he might just have found his muse. But, Mike will commit to nothing. From opposite sides of the tracks with different ideas, on romance, sex, and commitment the attraction is fiery – but which one is going to give?
