• Romeo cherche Romeo

    Justin Myers

    La vie de James n'est plus du tout gay-friendly à Londres. Il gâche son talent à écrire dans un journal à ragots, et tourne en rond dans son studio depuis qu'il s'est séparé d'Adam. Pour lui éviter de se laisser couler, sa meilleure amie le propulse d'un grand clic sur les sites de rencontres, et voilà James lancé dans des blind dates plus ou moins réussis, qu'il raconte sur son blog avec humour et romantisme, sous le mystérieux pseudo «Romeo». Et ce qui était destiné à tromper l'ennui lui apporte soudain la célébrité : sur la Toile, on ne parle plus que de Romeo! Qui est-il? Comment le démasquer? Ravi mais dépassé, James perd carrément le contrôle quand son prince charmant 2.0 se présente enfin, sous les traits d'une star du sport qui ne peut se permettre de sortir du placard...

    Une comédie gay d'aujourd'hui, qui parle d'amour, de romantisme et de sexe à l'ère des sites de rencontres et des réseaux sociaux. Subtilement drôle comme les Anglais savent l'être, acérée et pourtant tendre, sincère et pleine d'émotion!
