Dream Boy

Synopsis: Shy and withdrawn, Nathan (played by Stephan Bender) is new to his school, unusually smart (a grade ahead) and the silent tension at home nearly unbearable. Mom, Dad, and Nathan have moved constantly, town after town, landing, inexplicably, in god-fearing "St. Francesville". Roy (played by the multi-talented Max Roeg), a year older than Nathan, confident and hard-working, drives the bus to their school while a friendship blooms between them into a relationship that is fraught with confusion and yearning. But secrets pick at the relationship, the unspoken rules of their angst-driven interactions unravel as Nathan's world again comes crashing inwards. Tension crescendos as shame and terror, stress and disaster all compete to immobilize and destroy both of their worlds.

about going campin'.

Yeah, it's all been talk

'cause someone can't get away

from the girlfriend for a weekend,

spend time with his buddies.

Yeah, you're the hold up, Roy.

What do you say?

[Bell rings]


See ya.

[Door closes]

I told you I was coming.

Did you forget?


Algebra's simple. You learn to work

from both sides of the equation.

So, Mr. Sawyer's department store

sells socks,

six pair for $1.97.

How many nickels in $1.97

if you have four quarters,

six dimes, and two pennies?

Well, first you subtract.

Then you divide

to find the value of x.

There's a graveyard over yonder.

Can we go there?

You sure you want to?

I want to.

The Kennicutts used to own

all this land,

that's what people say.

There were two

Kennicutt plantations,

one that burned down,

and another one off in the woods.

Why is it called Poke's Road?

Poke's Road stretches a long way.

There must have been some Pokes

on it once upon a time.

Bring my books in the morning.

I'm going on home.

Where'd you go?

Out back.

There's a graveyard out there.

By yourself?

No, with the boy next door, Roy.

Oh. He's a nice boy.

There's a Western on the TV.

You ought to come watch it

with your dad.

No, sir.

All right. Go on to bed.


John chapter 13,

verses 21 through 26.

"Jesus was deeply troubled,

and He testified,

'One of you will betray Me.'

The disciples looked at one another,

at a loss as to whom He meant.

One of His disciples,

the one Jesus loved,

was reclining at His side.

John leaned back on Jesus' chest

and said,

'Master, who is it? '

Jesus answered,

'lt is the one to whom

I will hand the morsel

after I have dipped it.'

So he dipped the morsel,

and he handed it to Judas,

son of Simon the Iscariot."

Let us pray.
