An intruder breaks into a luxurious home. He wants it. But when the owner returns unexpectedly, the intruder finds himself wanted instead.
Imagine (and for some - sadly not) returning home to find your property has been broken into. Such is the situation that homeowner Simon finds himself in, only to discover that the prowler is still on the premises. Yet this is a man with a craving to experience the good things in life, breaking in not to steal; rather to sample a lifestyle that he could never afford, in the process trying on the homeowners' designer clothes for size. Caught red-handed however, he's ordered to return what is not his; jeans included, leaving him naked and powerless, literally at the mercy of a man who clearly has other thoughts on his mind.
Essentially a two-man play, this sharply edited work written by Roger Williams delights in turning the tables on a situation that's everyone's worst nightmare, as the intruder unwittingly finds himself the object of desire. In short, this is but a reworking of the predator turned captive theme, a scenario that divides the short into two distinct sections; with the opening somewhat light in tone, the intruder all too keen to sample the delights of such a palatial home, that is before the story turns decidedly dark when confronted by a man who equally - wants it. And yet for all of the build-up, the ending for me is a cop out, cutting to a twist-in-the-tale styled close that frankly cut short the sexual power game that had been beautifully played out between the two men.
That said, there's still a lot going for this short, with both actors having played their roles to a narrative tee, even if resident hunk James Cutler proves to be all too modest in the nudity department. Say no more.
