Patrick is an handyman for a poshy hotel in Manhattan; having renounced to many of his dreams, like going to college or having a career less manly but more satisfying, Patrick saved only one dream, to own his own home, a dream for which he is saving all his money and is doing a double job as janitor at the local college.
Christian comes from a wealthy and eccentric family; he doesn’t really have to work for a living, and he is now the very young Dean of the Economics Department. When he sees Patrick, Christian doesn’t question that Patrick is not of his same social status, he recognizes a man he could fall in love with. Christian pursues Patrick like an old fashioned admirer, with dinner and kindness.
There is a touch of drama, a lot of romanticism and mostly a nice and good love story. I like both characters, but especially Patrick, with his complex relationship with his family that lead all his life, until now, they didn’t disown him but simply since Patrick is not acting “gay”, but in doing so Patrick is also preventing himself to be happy.
