Look! there's the aliens!....
This indie film takes a look at childhood sexual abuse, and the consquences for the victims. The two male leads were both abused by their baseball coach as little kids. Now as adults, the one is a male hustler, while the other has concocted an alien abduction as his way of dealing with the past. While they spend most of the movie apart, dealing with the people in their lives, they reunite towards the end for resolution. Reviews have been mixed.
