In the cloistered, macho world of surf-lifesaving, a local champion is dethroned by a new, younger (and gay) contender. A booze fueled night of celebration brings out jealousy, homophobic fear and unrequited lust. Get ready for a night out with the boys!
“Outwardly, Dean Francis’ Drown is a story about homophobia in sport through the scantily clad world of surf lifesavers in Sydney. Yet this gripping film goes much deeper to examine the tragic consequences of unchecked self-loathing in a heavily defined and hard drinking culture of mateship.” – FilmInk
