I WANT YOUR LOVE is documentary film-maker Travis Matthews' first feature, revisiting material from his critically acclaimed IN THEIR ROOMS series. It focuses on a group of gay friends in San Francisco on the weekend when thirtysomething conceptual artist Jesse has to return to his family in Ohio. The movie explores Jesse's ambiguous feelings about leaving, the difficulty of letting go of old relationships, and the doubt and vulnerability that comes with forging new ones. It's a wonderful, naturalistic, intimate and - controversially - very sexually explicit film.
I WANT YOUR LOVE is rated 18 in the US and UK for explicit unsimulated gay sex. It is currently on very limited release in London.
