A Lower Power (2009)
Director: Robert O’Geen
Writer: Tim Bland
Duration: 98 min
Stars: Mathew Lotto, William McMichael, Terri J. Freedman
Not everyone gets to watch a video of his conception – or wants to. Thibodeaux sure doesn’t, but such openness is the exasperating norm for his free-love parents, Hank and Stormy, whose nest Thibodeaux can’t wait to leave. Thibodeaux sets off to college seeking a sexless social life but his chastity strategies meet their match when he meets a hottie that unleashes his appetites.. But what this young man thinks he wants collides with the hard reality of desire in the idiosyncratic, unrepentantly sexual comedy-drama, A Lower Power, a gay coming-of-age story where the coming of age isn’t about being gay.

Thibodeaux, a young gay San Franciscan, yearns to reject his parents’ hedonistic ways. But when his emerging sexual desires repeatedly get the better of him, he conjures up twisted, self-repressive rationalizations that threaten to drive away his friends and the hunky, mythic man of his dreams.
