 In the small Central California town where they grew up, two estranged gay brothers struggle to reconnect after the recent death of their father.  Tiger Orange joins a memorable group of films about the conflict between two brothers.  In a few of these cases, we’ve seen the story of one straight and one gay brother, but the novel variation here is that both brothers are gay.  Yet Chet (Mark Strano) and younger brother Todd (Frankie Valenti AKA ex pornstar Johnny Hazzard) are polar opposites.  They grew up in a small central California town with a single father after their mother left, but Todd has always been wilder and more rebellious, while Chet has been more repressed and responsible.  Todd ran off to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, while Chet stayed on to take care of their ailing father and run the family business.  After their father’s death, Todd, whose career is faltering, returns home.  But the tensions between the brothers continue to run deep.  When a secret adolescent flame of Chet’s also returns to town, Todd makes a move on him, reviving the jealousies that have always infected the siblings’ relationship.

The story itself is simple enough, but the richness of the film comes in the themes, the characterizations, and the performances.  In today’s climate, one might think that coming out is no longer an issue, and that is certainly Todd’s credo.  But in small towns across America, there can still be risks, and a series of strongly sketched scenes show the sense of community that Chet values and that he fears he may lose if he follows his brother’s example of being out and proud.  During the course of the story, Chet digs up some of Todd’s courage, while Todd comes to appreciate the traditions that he rejected. -The Hollywood Reporter
