Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 07/01/2001
"...A pleasant trip....It's naturalistic in form and content..."
New York Times - 07/13/2001
"...BIG EDEN may be less a dream of finding perfect romance than a simpler, but somehow more touching, fantasy of simply being accepted..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/01/2001
"...An accomplished heart-tugger, a serious romantic comedy that tackles two dilemmas with honesty and compassion..."

Product Description:

This "big country" romance involves an emotionally stilted Manhattan artist named Henry (Ayre Gross) who returns to his Montana hometown of Big Eden when his grandfather takes ill. Drama instantly arises as Henry learns the boyhood best friend (Tim DeKay) on whom he's fostered a twenty-year-long unrequited crush, has also returned to Big Eden and is anxious to resume their friendship. Henry also comes into contact with Dexter (Eric Schweig), the Native American proprietor of a local general store. Quiet and withdrawn, Dexter finds himself attracted to Henry but expresses his interest solely through a progressively more elaborate series of home-cooked meals. It is interesting that though they are surrounded with love and support by the liberal locals, these gay men are still blocked from romantic fulfillment by their own doubts and fears. The supporting cast includes residents of Montana's Glacier Park region where the film was shot, and Academy Award winner Louise Fletcher (ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST). A soundtrack of nouveau country music helps keeps things moving, and the color-saturated photography brings life to both the stunning outdoor vistas and the impeccably rustic interior d├ęcor. BIG EDEN is the feature debut of director/writer Thomas Bezucha.
